Almost 150-year-old “Künstlerhaus” – home-buildiing of Austria’s oldest artist’s association needs to be renovated. The documentary DAS KÜNSTLERHAUS – UPROAR / UPHEAVAL shows the challenges of more than three years of construction work. The phase of upheaval also demands from the association to embark on a search for a new identity, with the hope of financial and content-related restructuring. But board members, supporters and critical members repeatedly clash with each other over their different opinions on the general renovation.
Will the new “Künstlerhaus” be able to make the most of the restart and assert itself as a cultural institution in Vienna?
