The Final Talk marked the end of a two-year talk series, where Katrin Hornek and Johanna Tinzl invited eight artists to each conceive a talk with a partner of her choice at the VBKÖ (Austrian Association of Women Artists).

In the first year the idea was to reflect together on art works and artistic practices, on questions of collectivity and networks of support. In the spirit of the VBKÖ's annual program 2014 – To organize in friendship! – the dialogical format aimed to facilitate a conversation on familiarities and trust, on courage and panic. What can, must and do we have to share with each other?

The next year was about Do-It-Yourself as Do-It-Together questioning the VBKÖ's annual program 2015 which focused on Mingle-Mangle, Bond, Entangle!. How do fluid collaborations in changing positions with different non-institutional and institutional partners rewrite one's own artistic practice? What remains when you go? What happens if you stay?

A mobile display structure designed by Katrin Hornek and Johanna Tinzl provided the spatial framing of the series of talks, which transformed itself into »The Archive Sculpture« for the Final Talk.
