The Windspiel GALLERY was founded by Greta Znojemsky in 2001 in Weyringergasse 20 in the Upper Wieden, part of Vienna’s Fourth District.
Platform and forum where artists could present their points of view, encouraged contact with both Austrian and non-Austrian artists.
The mission was: Art does not have to conform with standard ideas of beauty, though of course it may! It can shock people into paying attention and wake them up. Art can help to stir awareness of conflict, to encourage understanding of the other point of view and to reduce prejudice.
Art takes no account of boundaries, whether the mental boundaries between individuals or the broader differences in thinking and outlook. In this way it helps to broaden horizons.
A vivid exhibition programm was run till 2011 than Windspiel Gallery fell asleep like the Sleeping Beauty till 2016.
The Windspiel Goes Hirschwangerhof Cooperation in Reichenau an der Rax was run as an artprojectspace during the year 2016.
The gallery activities have ended. Thank you for visiting and for collaboration.
