Opening: KRYOT @ street art passage MQ

In September 2008 the “Street Art Passage Vienna“ was opened on the initiative of quartier21 as a continuation of an already existing series of thematic passageways in the MuseumsQuartier Wien. The passageways are exhibition venues in public space which are each dedicated to specific cultural forms of expression (comic, sound art, etc). Moreover, the “Street Art Passage Vienna“ has a site-specific setting: the bridge from the Spittelberg – a center of the Vienna street art scene – to the 60,000 m2 cultural area of the MuseumsQuartier is accessible from the Breite Gasse.
Beside the permanent design of the passageway by french artist “Invader” this public venue benefits from its alternating program of exhibitions of both international and local street art and graffiti artists plus an accompanying series of publications. Each issue of the street art magazine “betonblumen” (“concrete blossoms”), designed by the artist who is currently exhibiting, is published by Schlebrügge.Editor, and is available at an integrated floral vending machine directly on site. Signed copies of limited artists’ editions of the magazine are up for grabs at the publishing house, at the SUBOTRON shop in the quartier21, at the INOPERAbLE gallery and at THE HOT DOGS in the 7th district. Once per year the works of art can be purchased by auction.
