Vandalism or art? Street art continues to divide opinion. Developed out of the illegal graffiti scene, the young art genre has long since found its way into galleries and museums, and conquered the art market. Also closely associated with graffiti and street art culture is skateboarding. For a long time labeled an intrusive and disruptive mobility culture of young people, the cult board of the 1970s has been enjoying a renaissance as a means of mobility and a leisure sport for a number of years.
For many people, skateboarding is not only a sport but also an attitude towards life and a way of shaping the world around them. From July 5, the Wien Museum invites everyone to discover the broad spectrum of both scenes. The empty rooms slated for the upcoming remodel will become a space for street art and skateboarding.
