Art knows no borders, the exchange of art and their collective communities will not be influenced or prevented by politics or religion. Not only does the Atelier Coolpool support this idea, we also live it. The topic ‘Take a chance on me’ should inspire us to dare a new beginning in our society. We should not only give ourselves a chance, but also the environment, togetherness, art, love, peace and thus the whole world. Art is our mouthpiece with which we can communicate and inspire, but also criticize and point out. With the creation of our works of art, we get a chance to show what we think, feel or have to say.

The name Vienna Calling is a song title by Viennese singer Falco, which gave the name to our exhibition in 2018. This was followed by ‘Vienna Calling II’ with the exhibition theme of a Beatles song ‘All you need is Love’ in 2020. For Vienna Calling III – 2022 we chose ‘TAKE A CHANCE ON ME’, a song title by the great pop group ABBA, in their 50th anniversary year.


The studio, founded in 2013, is located in the center of the ever-growing artists’ district and is located in the 15th district of Vienna at 13 Markgraf-Rüdiger-Straße, an avenue bordered with old trees that leads to the nearby Kriemhildplatz, the center of the Nibelungenviertel. The artist collective Daisy Gold and Manfredo Weihs deals with the connection and combination of the art forms of painting and photography. Two art forms – two artists – two different perspectives and approaches. What is important to them is experimentation, learning and further development in the constant search for something new.


ArtCan is a non-profit organisation supporting contemporary artists through a vibrant and exciting exhibition programme. The aim at ArtCan is to promote fair payment of artists: when you purchase a piece at an ArtCan event, you deal directly with the artists and they receive 100% of the payment. The organisation’s ongoing objective is to create, promote, maintain and improve opportunities for contemporary artists without compromise to their artistic exploration and development. ArtCan functions on a membership basis. It is open to all fine artists and creative practitioners. Members support and engage with one another through collaboration, communication and networking. In this way they facilitate and enable exciting exhibition and project opportunities.


The gallery, founded in 2018 within Atelier Coolpool, is located in the heart of the Nibelungenviertel near the Wiener Stadthalle, Austria’s largest event and cultural center. In addition to solo exhibitions, the artist duo Daisy Gold and Manfredo Weihs organise both national and international group exhibitions. Galerie Art Pool Vienna sells only on behalf of the exhibiting artists and does not charge a sales commission. 100% of the sales proceed to go to the exhibiting artists.


In the year 2000, Katharina, Christine and Veronika Schicho decided to hit the road together for their musical journey and formed the cabaret band “Dornrosen”. The three sisters have been successfully touring the entire German-speaking region for almost 20 years and have found a permanent place on the domestic cultural scene. In 2019, the Dornrosen bid farewell to their stage life with a „Grande Finale“ after a total of more than 2000 concerts. However, the journey of the three sisters will continue as the SCHICK SISTERS. Their own compositions are noted for slender melodies with thrilling chords and subtle arrangements. Unmistakable trademark is the brilliant and precise singing as a trio, accompanied by them with their own string-instruments: guitar, violine, double bass and occasionally piano. This is how they present themselves as an acoustic trio with echoes of Pop, Jazz and Folk. THE SCHICK SISTERS celebrated their world premiere with an appearance in the big ballroom at the Vienna Opera Ball in 2019.,,
