Today, science fiction might be the best kind of realism. This insight by J.G. Ballard provides the impetus for curated by_vienna 2015, to look at our artistic, political, and economic present from the perspective of an already existing future. 

Based on the eponymous essay “Tomorrow Today by philosopher and literary critic Armen Avanessian, the 20 Viennese galleries participating in the project, and the international curators invited by them, embark on an experiment to explore the intersections between art and capital. The seventh edition of the gallery festival is initiated and organized by the Vienna Business Agency’s creative center departure.
