From vacant concrete surfaces for parking vehicles has evolved a place of encounter and inspiration for people. As a result the MQ media arts lounge allows much more efficient and sustainable use of the scarce resource space. In addition to that it offers an excellent urban infrastructure at this location.
The MQ media arts lounge provides an innovative and three-dimensional stage for projection and light art, but also for short film and video artists, and other disciplines, thus creating new spatial and cultural offerings that have been missing for a long time in Vienna. They can be regarded as a positive endorsement of the cultural facilities in the vicinity, enabling strengthening and raising attraction of the site of MQ.
