Verwilderung – Ein Seestadtprojekt

Viennese choreographer Georg Blaschke and visual artist Christian Kosmas Mayer, Austrian Outstanding Artist 2020, invite you to a performative walk in the new urban development area Seestadt Aspern. Together with the audience, they will follow the traces of the famous Battle of Aspern-Essling, Napoleon's first military defeat. The walk will be musically accompanied by sound artist Christian Schröder.

A dramaturgically staged path across the former battle site leads from the new center of the Seestadt across wasteland and relics of old airstrips, through a memorial grove and thicket across open fields, to finally end at the so-called Schüttkasten, formerly a granary and now home to a Napoleon memorial museum. Verwilderung (feral, overgrowth) invites us to leave behind the present, this staged architectural and natural landscape, and sets off in the direction of an overgrown and forgotten zone. The artists, who have collaborated for the first time in the context of mumok moves, a cooperation between ImPulsTanz and the mumok – Museum moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien, lead us out of the shelter of bright daylight and into the ghostly twilight of our memory gaps.

Starting point of the walk is the U2 subway stop Seestadt - exit Seestadtstraße at Wangari-Maathai-Platz, 1220 Vienna. The walk ends at the Museum Aspern-Essling / Schüttkasten / Simonsgasse 23, 1220 Vienna, from there you can take the bus 88A or 88B back to the underground station Seestadt.

The event will be held in German.
If it rains heavily, the walk will unfortunately have to be cancelled.
