Contemporary Concerns (COCO) is a forum for the production, presentation, discussion, and communication of contemporary art. Situated in a passage in the center of Vienna, the kunstverein runs two exhibition spaces and a bar. Thematic group shows are COCO’s main format.
In our opinion, it’s important to avoid any air of didacticism and authority; thus, the systematic nature of COCO’s program (both exhibitions and theory) is concealed. Each approach should look fresh, accessible, informal, and, sometimes, strange.
COCO is a joint project by artist-curator Christian Kobald and curator Severin Dünser.
