Kunsthalle Wien

New thinking/new positions/new curator
Kunsthalle Wien is one of Austria's most prominent institutions for 
international contemporary art and discourse. Its two exhibition 
venues are located within Museumsquartier and in Vienna's city centre 
at Karlsplatz. The institution's internationally recognized 
exhibition programme of group and solo exhibitions feature some of 
the leading contemporary artists, and there is an equal dedication to 
ensure that these exhibitions are accompanied by a broad and 
challenging discursive programme that endeavours to open a dialogue 
not only with the arts, but with a variety of disciplines such as 
theatre, economics, sociology, philosophy, etc. Through its close 
cooperation and collaboration with artists, researchers, and other 
cultural actors, Kunsthalle Wien strives not only to be an active 
participant in the international discourse on contemporary art and 
related fields, but also to highlight current issues that are of 
concern to not only the arts, but also to society at large.

We are looking for a curator with expertise and wide-reaching 
creativity. You must have a higher education in the art field or a 
similar disciplinary background, a minimum of three years' experience 
within the field of contemporary art and a broad international 
network. The curator must have an understanding of both financial 
administration as well as experience in relation to public and 
private support sectors. We are looking for a person with a 
dedication to teamwork, collaboration, cooperation, and communication.

We expect basic knowledge of German. The position has a set term of 
at least two years. 

The application deadline is September 15, 2013.
