Kunstverein Kevin Space

Kevin Space is a Vienna based Kunstverein and was founded by Fanny Hauser, Carolina Nöbauer, Denise Helene Sumi and Franziska Sophie Wildförster in 2016. Kevin Space promotes international and local developments of contemporary visual arts, brought into dialogue in solo and group exhibitions as well as performative and discursive formats. A focus on the commission of new artistic productions, developed on site and conceived specifically for the space, the close work with the artists invited, and an ongoing artist-in-residence program, tests out the potential of the art space as a dynamic space of encounter.

Kevin Space currently presents the first solo exhibition of artist duo Basel Abbas & Ruanne Abou–Rahme in Austria. Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme were born 1983 in Nicosia, Cyprus and Boston, USA and live and work between Ramallah and New York. We know what it is for / We who have used it manifests the third chapter of And yet my mask is powerful (2016–2017).
