The Myth of Mars and Venus with Cupid
IN-SIGHT has set its focus on the 1809 figural group sculpture entitled Mars and Venus with Cupid, by Upper Austrian sculptor Leopold Kiesling.

Art Opening
I am untamed – I need a leash
Chloe Stead: »The sound a dog makes when a playful park tussle turns violent; the paparazzi shots of Charles Saatchi with his hands around Nigella Lawson’s neck at an elegant London restaurant; …« Alexandra-Maria Toth has invited both the Canadian Hannah Jean Boone and Vienna-based Thilo Jenssen to exhibit at artist-run space New Jörg.

Dance Performance Sponsored
Mystery Magnet
Miet Warlop has created another show made of moments of fragile illusionism, where fantasy and reality coexist. Mystery Magnet channels the contemporary surreal, a terrain where freakish cuteness and desensitised cruelty, glittering promises and unstoppable destruction share a common space at TQW Halle G.

Performance
Colonial Cocktail
Introducing her new stage series, Stefanie Sourial distils the essence out of the last four-hundred years of European colonial history and packs it into a fluent sixty-minute performance. Colonial Cocktail is a boomerang-like swing, tracking the origins of spirits and other currently trending alcoholic drinks and returning to the present, spicy on the tongue and sour in the finish at studio brut.

Music Live
Hardcore For The Losers
The Grazer Land of Ooo is celebrating its noise pop premiere at the Venster 99 together with Billow, a Prague-based dream pop band, and the Viennese lo-fi musician Racoon Rally.

Music Party
10 Years of MEAT
Actually, the title says it all. But since the description text has to meet a minimum length, there’s the facts on top: 2 clubs (Grelle Forelle, Das Werk), 4 floors with DJs like Boris, Gerald VDH, Matt Mor, and Anna Leiser as well as a large darkroom. Or to say it with the words of the anniversaries: Obey the Meat!
