Mission Statement

VCAS - Vienna Contemporary Art Space is a non-profit arts organisation based in Vienna founded by artists for artists. The mission of VCAS is to bring artists together to present their ideas and concepts to the city of Vienna and beyond. We are particularly interested in promoting exchange between artists from different backgrounds and providing a platform for international and interdisciplinary collaboration.

VCAS’s main focus is curating high quality contemporary art exhibitions with local and international artists. We attach particular importance to offering less established artists a platform to present their work to a broader audience, and artists working in interdisciplinary and experimental formats, new media, video, digital art, installation and performance. Our exhibitions aim to explore topics and show artwork that challenges the perception of the viewer.

VCAS also hosts Artist Residencies, in line with our mission to provide a platform for interdisciplinary and cross cultural collaboration, as well as cultural events and educational initiatives.
