the creative space at MuseumsQuartier Wien

Q21 provides workspace for around 50 initiatives, organizations, agencies and editorial offices working in the cultural sector. This creative space is spread across over 7,000 sqm within the MQ Wien. In this way, Q21 brings the “creative” aspect into one of the world’s largest complexes for art and culture. Q21 tenants work across a wide variety of fields. Be it an international film or dance festival, indie game development, art book publishing or a fashion boutique, with their themes and forms of production, these initiatives complement the traditional museums and event spaces at the MuseumsQuartier Wien. While respecting the individual autonomy of its tenants, the Q21 sees itself as umbrella brand, promoter and communicator alike. A further promotional tool and a key factor in establishing Q21 as a creative space is the Artist-in-Residence program. International guest artists are invited to Vienna by Q21’s resident initiatives to realize projects on location. Several of the Artists-in-Residence are represented with their works in the freiraum Q21 exhibition space. Admission is free to the freiraum Q21 exhibition space, which hosts to a program of group exhibitions curated by international curators, with a focus, since 2012, on socio-political themes and social criticism.
