Box of Truth

The Box of Truth is a glass container in the courtyard of Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier. It contains two chairs and a lie detector. Every Vienna Trial weekend will start with two public figures being attached to the lie detector and subjected to a public hearing by actor Bibiana Beglau. City Councillor for Culture Veronica Kaup-Hasler and GEA founder Heini Staudinger represent two very different positions on the federal government's coronavirus measures. How do they assess their statements from back then? In retrospect, were there misjudgements and omissions?

Fri, 24 May, 5pm, MQ Vorplatz
