Sculptures, intallations, paitings, illustrations – there is something for every genre here. From Romania – 418GALLERY, Borderline Art Space, : BARIL, EASTWARDS PROSPECTUS, JECZA GALLERY.

  • ZONE1 presents artists under the age of 40 who are born, educated or living and working in Austria.

  • Armenia section – The artists exhibited include: Ayreen Anastas & Rene Gabri, Mher Azatyan, Arman Grigoryan, Piruza Khalapyan, Rebecca Topakian, Mika Vatinyan.
