Artists Activists Auction Against Racism

AAAAR was a group of migrants, artists, activists, students, workers, who organized an art auction with the purpose to collect money to fight racist laws in Austria and administrative regulations against those coming to study from countries outside of the European Union.

AAAAR was an initiative inserted in a longer tradition of autonomous groups in the Academy of Fine Arts such as The Darker Side Of The Academy, AG Migration, among others. These initiatives themselves were as well closely connected to the student movement protests of 2009. The first AAAAR took place in the Rundgang of January 2011. The second in January 2012.
