EMPIRE ME – New Worlds Are Happening!


in conversation with Klaus Spiess




  How to become a Mikronatianalist; Paul Poet - 1525467.1

on Micronations and Counterworlds


„In the Days of Wars and Rumors of Wars – haven´t you ever dreamed of a Place where there was Peace and Security, wher living was not a Struggle but a lasting Delight? Of course you have!” (Einleitende Worte zu Frank Capras Filmklassiker “Lost Horizon / In den Fesseln von Shangri – La” von 1937)


Handmade utopias in real time. Socially explosive material for a neo-liberal self-pleased empire. The director and author has already been travelling for seven years to the existing counterworlds, micro-nations, eco-villages, neo-communes, modern nomad tribes and secessionists, all of which separate themselves consciously from the  new homogenising world order. In 2011 his documentary film EMPIRE ME – DER STAAT BIN ICH! (EMPIRE ME – I AM THE STATE) will premiere in movie theatres. The film portrays seven of those micro-worlds in their struggles, delusions, beauty and contradictions. In Nestroyhof he tells about these world tours and gives instructions for the home-use about founding such a state.


Paul Poet will talk subsequently with the medical psychologist Klaus Spiess


Paul Poet, a Styrian director and author for movie, TV and theatre, art journalist, media researcher who lives and works in Vienna.

After a childhood abroad in a war zone and a long eventful past in the punk- and music-scene of Vienna, he shot his first short film with international rock-prominence such as Melvins and Neurosis.

In 2000 he directed the first internet film festival of Europe and designed the online part of Christoph Schlingensiefs historical Container-Action at the Wiener Festwochen. The resulting documentary film Ausländer Raus! Schlingensiefs Container (Throw out the Foreigners! Schlingensief’s Container) became an international success and was granted awards in the film festivals of Houston and Toronto.

His second big film production Empire Me will be premiered in 2011. He prepares his first feature film Der Minusmann (The Minusman).

  CO/AL - Dean Zahtila - 1527896.1  

'CO/AL' is an interactive Underground City story telling ‘cell’, mixed media (music/video/dance/gastronomy) installation which does only exist and work with the physical presence of a public consuming magic Istrian food and divine vines. The installation tells fragmentary stories, from the history of the region and the mine, through the present time to the future as a beautiful (brave) new world. Instead of PUSH THE BUTTON - PULL THE LEVER - GET A RESULT concept, participant has to engage the whole body to generate his/her point of view, in that way instantly overriding the passivity which tends to accompany most of new media participation. CO/AL was conceived to address a number of complexities relative to technology, displacement of economies and populations, disparity of dialects and history, as well as the place of art & culture within these factors. Istria with the labin coalmine serves as a perfect illustration of the potentiality and pitfalls of current societal trends within the EUROPEAN sphere. All the elements are there: early globalisation and displacement of diverse populations, economic exploitation followed by construction of the bew cities, industrial and technological development, as well as subsequent abandonment of industrial buidings and infrastructure. Mystery of historic changes, inversion of a movement of Being - ex-se / in-se, and hidden collectively unconscious “aims” of time/history are nowadays looking for ingenious artists/explorers/entrepreneurs.

   MARGARETE - 1526178.1  

In 2005 I became fascinated by a phenomenon of mass publishing of "intimate" statements and diaries in the Internet. Sudden appearance of great amount of blogs reminded of the past popularity of silva rerum - Latin for "forest of things" - a literary genre popular in Poland in the sixteenth century. Silvae were commonly kept by weathly noblemen who created collections of texts on variety of subjects, written "live". They documented unique everyday life of their authors. In July 2008 I accidentally became an owner of several amateur films of a German woman living close to the Polish border. Immediately, I got captivated by the matter of the celluloid reels. In May 2010 I started to present it to the audience. The films will be displayed from multimedia and 8mm projectors. I will also tell the story of finding these film reels.

Josephine Baker




180dpi Josephine Baker (c) Jelinek - 1525251.2

Josephine © Thomas Jelinek


In 1928 Josephine Baker performed in Vienna for the first time.


Her show was a success and a scandal, a symbol for liberation and the break-through as an individual, as a woman and as a representative of the rassistically suppressed communities.


At the same time Josephine Baker pierced right into the crusted, morally, politically as well as socially defined power-barriers of the society at that time.
