At brut im Aterlierhaus der Akademie der bildenden Künste.

Performance Dance
Models of Reality
Liquid Loft has collected a wide array of sound recordings of regional dialects and languages from Europe and turned them into a dance performance. Models of Reality attempts to be a localisation and topography of the body by means of an imaginary cartography. At TQW Halle G.

Good for Nothin’
The Tallinn-based record label Serious Serious chose Venster 99 to not exclusevly present Estonian underground, but invariably high quality music in Vienna by infamous Lolina (fka Inga Copeland), Ewa Justka, Ratkiller, Regret, Jacob Samuel, and Benzokai. It’s definitely a must go!
