art & architecture platform

philomena+ promotes the intersocietal and intercultural exchange between the WANA region (West Asia and North Africa) and Vienna, Austria. philomena+ organizes and curates exhibitions, public art projects, artist residencies, exchange programmes between art institutions in Austria  and abroad, panel discussions, round tables and publication projects on pressing global issues. Rather than focusing on a type of art which centres around objects, philomena+ promotes art which focuses on individuals and life.

philomena+ aims to connect artist and architects from the WANA region  (West Asia and North Africa) with the local art community in Vienna and vice versa.

Its main purpose is to provide a platform for artists, intellectuals, researchers and civil society for dialoguing, questioning, creating and building future collaborations.

In addition philomena+ seeks to work with artists and architects, who originate from the WANA region and have recently settled in Vienna or in Austria, offering a first point of contact and support to find their feet in the new environment.

In 2016, motivated by an understanding that sees art as an outlet for different social groups and a way for promoting a global peaceful coexistence, art historians Christine Bruckbauer and Negar Hakim founded the philomena+ platform. “We see ourselves as cultural ambassadors who engage in an exchange of ideas, information, art and other aspects of culture among nations and their peoples in order to foster mutual understanding.”
