This exhibition marks the beginning of a longer series of exhibitions with artistic positions that stand up for a diverse society and against illiberal tendencies—in Austria, in Europe and beyond.

Initially, works by visual artists will be shown and discussed that deal with present anti-fascist struggles, the preservation of basic democratic rights and social orders beyond the concept of nations.

The phrase "Guerilla der Aufklärung" (Guerrilla of Enlightenment) is used by courtesy of Doron Rabinovici and has been taken from the text "Aktion und Artikulation. Das Bestehen des Republikanischen Clubs" published in "Von der Kunst der Nestbeschmutzung - Dokumente gegen Ressentiment und Rassismus seit 1986", Löcker Verlag, 2009.
