The Vienna Project is a new social action memorial project.  Slated to begin in October of 2013 and conclude in May of 2014, the project is to be situated on the streets of Vienna and along the Danube Canal.  If you are interested in participating in our Sidewalk Installation Project, click here.

The Vienna Project will be the first public art memorial of its kind in Europe and the first public naming memorial in Vienna to symbolically represent, in a differentiated format, the multiple groups of persecuted victims of National Socialism, while also naming individual victims and dissidents on record within a given country, murdered between 1938-1945.
