Wiener Klassiker.

Vienna is a city with two faces. This classic one: rich, full of art, Freud, history and bittnerness of the past. And this new one: the one that is being named as „the best city in the world” (by Mercer competition). This second face is not Stephansplatz and neither Klimt is. It’s more to be found around Hauptbanhof, Praterstern or Seestadt, it constitutes in comfortable living, available apartments, public transport and greenery.

Beata Malinowska-Petelenz, touched by nostalgia and urban melancholy, comes back to Vienna with her own traces. Continues her drifting with a sketchbook and invites us to visit the best city in the world. She leads us via streets woven with lines, details and imagined spaces that stay untouched by time. „Wiener Klassiker” means classy and timeless, it’s an immortal reference and one of the hearts of former Galicia. It means places that are and still demand being discovered.

Exhibition of Vienna drawings is organised with contrast perspective – you’ll find here both wide open spaces as well as details and small, usually not even seen, parts that tourist passes by. Architecture, as the flesh of the city, becomes independent and intimate, overgrowing it’s usual pragmaticness.

Parallel Vienna – summary

Parallel Vienna is over, but we’re still bursting with energy and good memories we brought back to Krakow from those days. We were extremely tired, but happy. Our exhibition was visited by hundreds guests – most of them we’re really impressed and shared good feedback with us. We said many “hellos”, shoke many hands and did a lot of networking. Now we want to say THANK YOU, to all who kept fingers crossed! We want to say thank you also to our media partners  – SARP Kraków, Instytut Polski w Wiedniu and – most of all – your engagement was very supportive.
