Call for Participation

Festival for Political Art, Theory and Practice. Vienna 2021

Call for Participation

What a brave new world? Is everyone now closest to themselves, or do collective processes have a future as well? Who is excluded and how, and how can we generate a public space – in which autonomy and empowerment do not only support an interplay of existing milieus and classes? What positions can art and culture take on in this? What is called „urban gardening“ in cities like Vienna helps in many other places to cover the basic needs for food in times of crisis and to ensure survival. When we look at international art and cultural events, we have the feeling that the biggest problems are the ones between ethnic groups, different religious groups, between corona deniers and hysterics – and that class does not play a big role. Social divisions in all forms and permanent – in a time of crisis of representation, not only caused by Covid-19, these existing dynamics are intensified. We are looking for questions, answers, actions, interventions and „best practice“ examples of social intervention in the production of public discourse.


  • Open to individuals or groups.
  • Projects can be realised (depending on Covid regulations) in public space or in the festival headquarters Kitchen (Bacherplatz corner Schwarzhorngasse 1).

  • The projects are realised in discussion with and with the support of the moneyfesta team. We provide support with permits in public spaces, with technical equipment (as far as possible) and with the promotion of the public events.

Dear organizers.
I want to participate in the Moneyfesta21. But I try to send the documents to your e-mail address, it does not allow. Maybe there is another address to send?
Kind regards

Dear Gohar Smoyan,

Liebes Team, ich versuche euch seit ein paar Tagen meine Projektvorschlag für das Festival 2021 an eure email-Adresse zu schicken. Leider kriege ich das Mail immer wieder ungesendet retour. Habt ihr eine andere Kontaktadresse? Ist mit eurem Postfach alles in Ordnung?
Danke und Liebe Grüße,

Hallo Maja,

unsere Mailbox war voll. Haben das Limit jetzt erhöht und es sollte problemlos funktionieren.
lieben gruß, orga

Hello Layal Berberi,
I fear – as our production fund is limited – not too many. When you apply we can look it up and find exact rates for acco and transport. cheers, J. for the moneyfesta/orga
