MUME Festival der Platane

MUME Festival der Platane

MUME (Museo Mexicano/Mexican Museum) is a nomadic anti-museum by artist Oscar Cueto that seeks to create alternate narratives in the decolonial and global migration context, presenting collaborative projects between international curators and artists in Austria. For this edition, Austrian artist Manuela Picallo Gil will present the “Festival der Platane” at the MUME in collaboration with nine further artists.

The three-day Festival der Platane proposes a paradigm shift in relation to monument culture. In search of a reference point for resistance, protest and peace, the festival aims to orient the current discourse on monuments towards the mighty shade plane tree, whose roots have been anchored in the soil of Vienna’s first district at Dr. Karl Lueger Square for more than 100 years.
