Human condition builds upon slight social system changes and at the same time affects the convulsion of the stabile, yet fragile construction. Small irregularities may cause tempestuous effects in this system, they may leave permanent scars and immense gaps, although not muster sufficient power for breaking the entire ungraspable structure. Not at once, not individually. But singularities can gather in order to foster the social change from their multiple perspectives and experiences.

Sharing a socio-politically sensitive approach, the exhibition and its extensive additional program titled Multiple Singularities present installation works and visual research projects of both alumni and students of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. The field of investigation is public space and its occurrences, while the formal approach of the exhibited works often refer to modernist abstraction. Multiple methods, media, and articulations are functioning in unison to convey insights into multifaceted disciplinary endeavors. Last but not least, the presentation of these artistic research practices proposes solutions to discrepancies posed by the urban realm.
