Hermann Vompp Foundation

Number ONE
Vienna Art Week

As part of the Vienna Art Week, the Hermann Vompp Foundation exhibits current contemporary art positions. Leaving out the artists’ identity allows the visitors’ view to concentrate fully on the works themselves, uninfluenced.

November 15 – 19, 2017


Art Finds Space

REAKTOR, a new private exhibition space in Vienna, will open in the autumn of 2017 in the premises of the former Grand Etablissement Gschwandner. 1,200 square metres of exhibition and event space will combine various artistic forms of expression, making them available to the public. The formal focus is on music, the visual arts, dance, literature and film. The programme is oriented towards themes on society’s event horizon, as perceived through the transdisciplinary means of art.

A high artistic standard, critical questioning, enjoyment and aesthetics complement each other at REAKTOR. Visitors find a varied balance of critical positions, sensual experiences and surprising cross-links. The goal of the programming and presentation is to offer visitors a free space for their individual perspectives on the works displayed.


Our press kit conveys a first overview of the building, the programming and the protagonists behind it. For further information please contact



1,200m² for Art and Diverse Events

The architectural centrepiece of REAKTOR consists of three halls from different historical building phases. Their generous configuration allows a high degree of flexibility for the presentation of art in all its forms and dimensions. As part of the restoration, the new infrastructure will enable multiple usages, including in particular a cinema with flexible seating. The event locations at REAKTOR can be rented.
