BETWEEN REPRESENTATION AND REVOLT
December 14, 2022
Wed, 14.12.2022—Sun, 7.5.2023
MayDay Rooms is happy to have collaborated with the Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna on their latest exhibition THE FEST: Between Representation and Revolt. Celebrations are held for religious and political reasons, (wild) artists’ and other festivities sometimes transgress taboos, private celebrations reflect social contexts. Temporally, the exhibition spans an arc from the beginning of the Enlightenment to new festive calendars of a forming working class at the time of industrialization to current festive formats. Whether bold rococo masked balls, festivals of avant-garde from the interwar and post-war periods or forbidden raves: All of them are recalled, discussed, and celebrated with their subversive power in THE FEST.
MayDay Rooms contributed to the exhibition by donating materials from our Reclaim the Streets collection.
