Learn about how Newton’s art does, on the one hand, receive admiration and appreciation from the gaze of art and fashion and, on the other hand, can provoke multiple emotional reactions, perhaps even rushed rejection and cancellation.
Join Vidya Giridharan and Talia Radford, students of the Master of Art of Applied Human Rights at Die Angewandte with their project Creative Human Rights Practice (CHRP) together with the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien in their attempt to repurpose the role of art institutions as dialogical and participatory spaces.
