Ula Schneider started a regular urban art project, ‘SOHO in Ottakring’, in 1999. This project focuses on aspects such as urban living and development, artistic intervention and interaction in the local environment and public life. A key aspect is the collaboration between national and international artists, cultural workers, and with local groups and institutions as well as the proactive use of public space during the biennial two-week festival in May. Socially engaged art outside of the institutions is flexible enough to respond to changing society, to create and make all kinds of situations in the urban landscape visible.
