Akademie Rundgang 2018

Like every year, also this end of january (25. - 28.1) brings the open day at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Although „open day“ is too narrow a term: „Rundgang“ has evolved into a mini-festival and accordingly there is a festival program.

Apart from open studios and collections allowing insight into university life and work processes a tightly packed schedule of lectures, tours, performances and screenings accompany the open day (as well as several bars), not to forget information and advice for students in spe. Of course, Rundgang also adresses people who simply wish to know what germinates in one of the city´s artistic soils, as one can see the Academy as some kind of biotope or relatively safe experimental laboratory.

Still, one thing won´t be achieved during this prolonged weekend. Which is to see EVERYTHING.
