The starting point was the rare use of the parking lot at the Viennese Naschmarkt. This space of approx. 5000 sqm, which is a central link between the 5th and 6th district, has a lot of potential because of its visibility, central location and high visitor frequency. We wanted to make it a subject of discussion, by vitalizing it and make it visible. So, the parking lot became the home of the Kino am Naschmarkt.
Once a year, the Kino am Naschmarkt turns the barren concrete place into the biggest collective living room of Vienna. Our main goal is to promote the idea that a city is a common good and should be shaped by collaborative and cooperative usage. The cinema utilizes an urban resource and turns a wall, which is used for advertising, in to a cultural medium.
