Ich brauche Platz! is an art and space research project, carried out in cooperation with the Institute of Art and Design, KÖR and IBA-Internationale Bauausstellung Wien, with a bus converted into a multifunctional space serving as the “research base”. From October 2019 to October 2020 the bus stop in three IBA areas, namely the Vienna urban development areas Berresgasse, Neu Leopoldau and Per-Albin-Hansson-Siedlung. Together with students and local young people as well as other local cooperation partners, artists develop demand-oriented and socially integrative art and spatial research activities.
The basis and structure for this process, which is initially open-ended, is provided by the Bus Laboratory Program, which will focus on specific topics: With formats such as "Grätzlreisen", "Quatschbude", "Schreibwerkstatt", "Kreativlabor", “Körperinszenierung“, "Soundtown", "Hands-on-Workspace", “Action Place“ and "Open House", the children and young people will be given the opportunity to participate in the activities on a daily or even sporadic basis, depending on their interests.
In spring and summer 2020, the project activities had to be continued on Instagram due to Covid-19 restrictions. There, the young followers were able to participate in arts and crafts.
