integral reception


Underground is detaching values.
At the end of the theatrical event you won’t have a ticket anymore in your hands but a co-created artwork by Barbara Anna Husar.

On the uncertain pathways through the underground visitors will be checked out from the different stations via stamps on their zone pass.

The stamps originate from a 642-piece assembly of the artist Barbara Anna Husar. In her privat language she adapted them to the different performance fragments. Through individual interactions with underground city her code transforms into a coproduction of an artpiece and will be signed by the artist at the end of parcour.

underground virus

video installation

Idea, Realisation: Jorge Sánchez-Chiong, Brigitte Wilfing
Interviews with: Mieze Medusa, Christina Nemec, Pure, Sudden Infant, Stefan Weber, e.a.
Thanks to: Toxic Dreams.


Every city needs an underground (or many!) as an expression of its political, ethical and sexual minorities. These cultures differ from the normal, have no consensus with the mainstream, do not fulfil any expectation of the regulating high culture but take the biggest possible distance by staying in the underground.

Every cultural field has its own myths and utopias. Underground Virus collects statements  of important initiators of sub- and youth cultural movements (Techno, Hip Hop, Noise, Industrial) who talk about their movements and their subversive infiltration of the mainstream. The installation sheds light on the personal ways of refusal and puts the experience of the protagonists in the centre, together with their direct surroundings such as record and fetish collections, posters, flyers, tapes.

Brigitte Wilfing

Brigitte Wilfing's artistic work as a choreographer, music-/performer and contemporary dancer is marked by the collaboration with artists of different media and theorists. Her inter- and transdisciplinary projects focus on popcultural topics, on the combination of conceptual art with street art and the connection of theory and practice. In her music-project demimondaine she adopts both masculine and feminine behaviour patterns/movement codes to create a nontrivial physicality. Thus sexual identities become a pleasurable playground for performative practices and bodypolitics. Her work can take the form of performances, lecture-performances, installations and concerts.

 Squatter my bath (c) s. fachel - 1525423.1  

Squatter My Bath

conzept: Simone D. Fachel

photography: Simone D. Fachel

performance: Simone D. Fachel / Julischka Stengele

An artistic experiment. Setting a political act against the closing of public spaces by opening a private one. This is an appeal to squat a bathroom: for 3 or 120 minutes, in order to cut hair or to drink coffee – the squatter decides what will happen. Idleness or activity, play with the situation or withdrawal – everything is possible and wished for. The actions will be photographically recorded, the resulting photos hapticly processed and then published on the festival homepage. The participants will receive a photo.

Simone D. Fachel

born in Leoben, Styria, lives and works in Berlin. The impulse for her artistic career in photography was the photographic analyse about the home-constructions of migrant women from Latin America and Austrian women in their living rooms in Vienna. It was followed by artistic projects about city – city development, structures of power, identity. Content-related activities concerning e.g. utopias, social economy and migration.


Julischka Stengele (*1982) ist eine multidisziplinäre Künstlerin, die ihren Arbeits- und Lebensmittelpunkt in Berlin hat. Sie arbeitet hauptsächlich mit den Medien Performance und Fotografie.

Caregivers img - 1526446.1  



Castro and Ólafsson amalgamate their interest in avant-garde videography/cinematography and documentary practice in the video Caregivers. The viewer is confronted with the unexpected juxtaposition of music, journalism and visual arts, testing the viewers’ own conventional familiarity with those three creative genres. The video portrays the relations between four women: Eastern European migrant care-givers and their elderly clients from the area of Rovereto, during the course of their daily life and work. The narrative content of the video is a newspaper article found by the artists, reflecting on the recent migration phenomenon of Eastern European care-givers in Italy. This article becomes a matrix for Karólína Eiríksdóttir’s contemporary classical music composition, in the form of a Cantata.
In the ‘zone’ where creative expression and reality meet, this video work introduces and comments on the complex situation of mutual dependency in a network of the European care-giving system. Both sides of this irreconcilable labour exchange - the care-givers and the care-receivers (including their families) - are caught up in a position of ‘manipulation’ of/by the socio-economical/political system, in order to fulfil their essential human needs. This particular situation illustrates the implications of European national legislations and the inadequacy of the system to offer appropriate solutions for either of those two dependent groups - thereby showing the ‘threshold of the law’ in a direct way.

  Libia Castro and Ólafur Ólafsson

 (based in Rotterdam and Berlin) started their collaboration during their post-graduate studies in Visual Arts in The Netherlands in 1997. In their work, whether experiential installation environments, interventions, events, sculpture, video- or photo-works, Libia and Ólafur often collaborate with other people: groups, individuals, activists, artists and other professionals. While reflecting upon everyday life in different places in which they work, they wish to sensitize the perception of their viewers, raising questions about the human condition, focusing on existential, spatial, cultural, socio-economic and political aspects. They have participated in Manifesta 7, and exhibited at Reykjavik Art Museum, Akureyri Art Museum, CAC Málaga, CAC Vilnius, Art in General New York, De Appel CAC Amsterdam, Rotor Graz, Witte de With CAC Rotterdam, TENT Rotterdam, Kunstler Haus Bethanien Berlin, Platform Garanti CAC Istanbul, Van Abbe Museum Enschede, and the 8th Havana Biennial. They are currently shortlisted for the Prix de Rome 2009, in the Netherlands.

One Day a "T" and a "K" - 1527048.1  

One Day a "T" and a "K"



In exploring as well as confronting the cultural norms and de- and re-regulation process(es), Şener Özmen and Cengiz Tekin in their recent video work One Day a "T" and a "K" provide a critique of the outdoor historical spectacle which involves additional dilemmas within the re-enactment of nationalistic element may trivialise the past.

The re-enactment on the T (stands for Turk) and K (stands for Kurt) mirrors the way that the society of “necropolitics” and its processes of geopolitical demarcation in relegating them to some other place of existence.


The work may also reference a site, a series of historical events or a discursive space beyond the physical site where there are some important site specific elements which have to do with the geography and historical function of the sites: the East part of Turkey. Yet an additional interest and complexity are heightened by a chosen concept within the contemporary cultural production creating a visual dialogue where objects and past artefacts were placed in proximity to old movie effect.


The effect of currency: “punishment”, “execution”, “danger”, “risk” and “wilderness” emphases on the arguable role shift between stamina and the determinacy of upholding of the ‘self’ strangely placed.  By revealing spontaneous dominance and its strong national command that is briefly shown through Istiklal Marsı and its effects, the situation here presents the viewer a focus upon propagating ‘exercise of power’ on the surface of epistemological portrayal.

Future 2; Thomas J. Jelinek - 1525491.1  


The installation is a new stop in a continuous documentation process of the project on the FUTURE.


Jung people of various regions of the world are answering questions concerning their view on the world, the past and their future. In the present phase of the project the topic is focussed in conversations. The results of the talks are visible in a video-installation set as a ,mechanical quire´ on 5 monitors. The different ways of surviving are in “FUTURE” building up a collective picture of the world, consisting of the fragments of individual narratives and opinions of the future generation.



Thomas J. Jelinek

Born in Stockholm. Stage director, dramaturgue, curator, multidisciplinary artist. Created various video and space installations, music/performances and has worked in television productions, architectural projects and as a curator.

One focus of his artistic work is on space and preception, resulting in installations of contextual spaces and conceptional communication scopes. Thus interventions in public space and production of discourse zones as theatrical processes as well as stage-rooms and light concepts for theatre and art spaces are part of his practical work. In this context he also realized a number of stage-spaces and light concepts for theatre, danceprojects and performance.
As a stage director he has realized various performance, opera and theatre projects in public and theatrical areas in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands and France and has worked as a dramaturgue for various dance productions. He was joint founder and leader of MESSING network.

Kabuki Kebap; D. Soezen; Underground City 21 - 1513335.1  




with: Deniz Soezen, Tetsuro Nagata, Niang Serigne Mor

from the series: Home Stories/Public Diary Project


A trilogy of absurd anecdotes connects the cities London, Vienna, Tokyo and Dakar through Turkish specialities:

Döner is advertised as a German delicacy in China, as a voiceover tells us. A woman in a geisha-costume performs rather awkwardly a ritualistic Japanese dance in a kebab shop in London. We learn from a Brit with Japanese background that he is taken for a Chinese. A Viennese man from Senegal buys a Dürüm at a sausage stand and equals it with Senegalese sushi.


The polyphony of voices and languages blurs the borders between biographical narration, cultural location, facts and fiction in this kaleidoscopic chain of the absurd scenarios.


Deniz Sözen studied Fine Arts at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna and graduated from the postgraduate program in “Art Practice” at the Goldsmiths College in London (2007–2009) as a scholarship holder of the Arts and Humanities Research Council. At the moment, she lives mainly in Vienna and works as lecturer at the Kunstuniversität Linz. Various exhibition and festival partisipations both in Austria and abroad.

„Szenische Immunologie “  – Access to the development process of this project at LABfactory                           

Based on a preceding study by immunologist about gestures, this work will explorate infiltration, resistance and assimilation. A reconstructed immunologic laboratory with its requisite, protagonists, their gestures and spoken metaphors will become a playground for dislocating meanings. The bodies of the immunologists negotiate their autonomy from the opposing language through gestures. The notions of space and order in immunologic systems will be rearranged. War, politics, architecture, urban sociology and the media appear as models.  Differences between scientific texts and bodily gestures will be scenically investigated in order to make the immunologic tactics and strategies visible. The immunologic themes will be detached from their familiar, operative functions and extended towards a wider psycho-cultural and social field beyond immunology.

Script and concept: Klaus Spiess,Medical  University / Public Health, Vienna

Performer: Katharina Meves (D) Salka Ardal Rosengren (SWE), Mikko Hyvönen (FIN) - P.A.R.T.S Graduates, Brüssel


Director: Lucie Strecker, Berlin


Lucie Strecker has been working at the Medical University of Vienna since November 2009 on creating models for a “scenic immunology” in cooperation with “Arts and Humanities Group”. This scientific project aims to extend the representations of microbiology beyond the purely scientific context, to put them into wider cultural contexts.

Involved in the project:

Horst Schily (actor and university lecturer at the Max Reinhardt Seminar) and Katharine Meves (freelance dancer) as performers, Saskia Hölbling (Wien) and Ingo Reuleke (Berlin) as supervisors in the field of choreography. The correspondence with the “Art and Humanities Group” of the Medical University of Vienna made it possible to exchange knowledge with linguists, anthropologists, medical scientists and psychologists.

They nest in the interspaces, offside all striking curiosity. In their stories, they build on really existing places and continue playing the themes of these places in other dimensions. Connected to the different locations of the underground city 21, moments of narratives will be staged on the edge of the loud hustle and bustle of the city.
The protagonists will be small figures; cinematic sound collages will draft the events.

COAL - Dean Zahtila - 1528520.1  

CO/AL’ Homokinetic Co-dimensional Cell

'CO/AL' is an interactive Underground City story telling ‘cell’, mixed media (music/video/dance/gastronomy) installation.

The installation tells fragmentary stories, creating a logic narrative from the history of the region and the mine, to the present time to the future as a beautiful (brave) new world. It is referring to the common gentrification (and joint venture)-projects, all over Europe (and the world of course) as investment-projects actually making a big virtual playground out of the globe.

The cold lifeless form of the installation makes the phantasm of this speculative of the world-real estate market, without any reference to real life, even more evident.

 a transformation

installation performance


Make a human image out of clay, and you will destroy the intent of the fiends.

(from the Golem-saga)


One needs adequate strategies to create a Golem in the 21st century – not the hardware, the wrap of the artificial organism is the crucial element but the “organic software”. In the centre of this installation-performance is the human body as material, corresponding to the original sense of the word “Golem” which means something unformed, not-ready as well as the embryonic state. The performers will undergo a process through bondage-art which leads the body from the segmentation via transformation to reorganisation. Only the networks, the interfaces, make the machinery of the newly-created figure able to move.

Reconquered Privacy


“THIS IS NOT A BURKA! Just cloths” is a reconquest of privacy in the public space. In an age nudity which is demanded by fashion and freedom, the complete clothing becomes a provocation. Not recognizable, not predictable, defied against the compulsion of beauty and individuality, under the ground, the scum of the earth in the blind angle.

„Wissensdramatisierung  -  Sprechstück“

(Dramatization of Knowledge / Drama)



In this performance piece Ana Hofner investigates post-dramatic theatricality and the associated dissolution of the structure of theatre as part of present processes of subjectivication. By questioning theatricality and drama, knowledge of acting and actors and their learned roles, is created. Through that, positions of speaking are being formed, for these subjects, who own knowledge about drama and its occurrences. With the help of this knowledge, the speakers of post-dramatic theatricality create post-dramatic situations, which, located between reality and theatrical fiction, cannot withdraw from being involved in power-relations. This drama tries to dramatize once more the role of the speaker and his forms of knowledge.

  Ana Hoffner is a performance artist and works in the realms of queer- and migrant- (post) colonial politics. Her performative practice investigates elements of re-enactment and intervention, in order to articulate an artistic and politica form for the present. At the moment she is working on questions of homo-normative and queer politics within the discourse of the european union.

Mythopoetic Performance on the Emergence of Collective Intelligence


Concept: Katherina Zakravsky

Performance: Katherina Zakravsky, Thomas Edlinger

Text: Katherina Zakravsky, Thomas Edlinger

Sound: Andreas Wiesbauer

Where do you go with all the knowledge in your head ?


Virtually, there is a collective intelligence – where is its forum, its format, its form? So many others, alive and dead, familiar and strange, are permanently thinking with my mind. How to honor this multitude? Why claim old dead authorship when moving through the city is like swimming in intelligence?


And if we have to found a city of refuge, if we have to retreat to a new Atlantis, what will be the books, the films, the sciences, the arts, the myths we will take to this island? (By the way, I have not watched it, but why has “Lost” been such a cult?)


The darkness, that would be virtually the completeness of knowledge, the white page completely covered with scripture. The amazing freedom, – and task – , to re-organize it all, anew.


Its like in this Cronenberg movie, when Allegra Geller says “I am going to download “eXisTenz” into each one of you.” What if you would wake up in the game and it would be – total darkness?


And always another city within the city.” (Gilles Deleuze: Logics of Sense)
