For IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT, artists were invited to develop interventions for this specific area and to get involved in the stories deposited there, make these stories visible, and assess their relevance to the present. The eventful history of the site—from the Ottoman Empire’s siege of Vienna (Church of Mariahilf) to the Nazi era (flak tower), the use of the park as a meeting point for homosexuals, and today’s Caritas-run care facility “Gruft” (Crypt) for the homeless—was taken up in different ways. The projects were realized in various media and materials; their range spanned from sculptural pieces, installations, participatory and performative interventions to text and sound works.
