The University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna (BOKU) conducts research in the areas of sustainability, resource management, and the conservation and protection of our environment and quality of life. These fields of research form the thematic focus of Elementarereignisse (Elementary Events), a series of artistic interventions to mark 150 years since the university’s foundation.bb15, the curatorial team, developed a concept that revolves around disruption, barriers and disaster. The three temporary artistic interventions on the university grounds generate a sense of irritation in the fabric of everyday life, thereby drawing attention to BOKU’s socially relevant research areas.
The opening of Elementarereignisse (Elementary Events) and Lasting Signs of Jubilee took place on May 23, 2022 at BOKU Campus. Further dates will follow.
