Pentagram, witch talon, black cat. The Kunstraum Niederoesterreich won’t quite become the Blocksberg, but it will create space for an always topical figure: the witch.

About

In the group-exhibition “Magic Circle” curators Katharina Brandl and Daniela Brugger convene contemporary and historical positions related to the witch in queer-feminist cultural production. Power, knowledge, and identity are thematic fields explored in this exhibition. The history and present of female appropriation of power and magical practices play a central role. An exhibition about the social backgrounds of witch trials, nail art, magic spells, witch courses, fortune-tellers, and their queer-feminist power.
