20 years after the fact, Cuban artist and activist Tania Bruguera has added Christoph Schlingensief’s provocative invocation Please Love Austria! to the title of her School for Integration. Using his impactful art project as a catalyst, it is now Bruguera who again focuses on Austrian society and its responsibility in questions of migration. In collaboration with Brunnenpassage and kulturen in bewegung she transforms the Kunsthalle Wien Karlsplatz into an open classroom for Austrians. In more than 60 courses, migrants from various backgrounds teach and mediate theoretical and practical knowledge, from language, music, crafts and food to history, ethics, politics and law. This time the tables are turned. Those who are always meant to be learning something become teachers. Those who always think they already know are required to question that belief. In this setting, to learn is to create alliances against established hierarchies. And a common space from which to call for social justice. Bruguera uses the term ‘Arte Útil’, i. e. art as a tool to alter social contexts. Spectators become citizens. And involvement, a political effect.
