::The programming of the Museumsquartier

Since Public Netbase is forced to move from its offices in the Museumsquartier due to the refurbishment of the buildings, while being kept in the dark about any possibilities of returning, doubts emerged as to the overall objectives of the Vienna Museumsquartier.

A structural plan concerning a future "Quartier 21", drafted by art journalists and curators Markus Wailand and Vitus Weh, marked a clear turn in this development.

The plan, which has meanwhile been approved by Federal Minister Gehrer (ÍVP) and the Board, provides for an additional segment of contemporary, critical and independent cultural production in the Museumsquartier. This amounts to a positive response to the request of all users to establish the Quartier 21 independently from the general management of the Museumsquartier, as the latter would have meant a substantial restriction of institutional self-determination..

One of the more important points of the plan is the offer of a two year's lease contract, starting in March 2002, to Public Netbase t0, whose work has enriched the Museumsquartier over the past years and has attracted international attention to this venue.
