Galerie Bleich-Rossi /Dominikanerbastei 19/ 1st district/Vienna
Charim Galerie / Dorotheergasse 12/1 / 1st district/ Vienna
Lukas Feichtner Galerie / Seilerstätte 19/ 1st district/ Vienna
Galerie Ernst Hilger / Dorotheergasse 5 / 1st district/ Vienna
Mam Mario Mauroner Contemporary Art Vienna / Weihburggasse 26 / 1st district Vienna
Jérome Sans has invited the following artists: Jan Lauwers/Hani Rashed/Barthelemy Toguo/Francisco Valdes/Qiu Zhijie. They are all coming from different countries and generations and do not have any relations to the viennese galleries. Sole exception of disconnection is the vast range of work from installations over painting to photography – there seems to be no limit to their creative output. See five disconnected worlds united through the same state of mind.
