Essentials July 23 - 29

Where to go and what to do - every week, PW-Magazine selects the most exciting events and exhibitions that should not be missed in Vienna!

Monday - July 23

Performance Dance
In this setting of samples and loops the relationship between image, performance and sound is taken to a new, surprising level. At mumok, as part of the ImPulsTanz festival.

Thursday - July 26

Art Lecture
Ann Cotten
Ann Cotten compares the translator’s job to that of a musician who comes up with a fully realized stand-alone rendition of a pre-existing composition; will stage a reading as a performance at Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier.

Art Happening
Lessons from a road trip with instructions
On their journey from Leipzig to Vienna, Paule H. and Florian H. solved tasks from Paule’s exhibition in the gallery KOENIG2 and will now report about it in sound and image. Katrin P. will accompany her on guitar and Robby G. will be standing behind the bar.

Friday - July 27

Art Closing
The Two Halves of Martha Wilson’s Brain
Guided tour by the curator Felicitas Thun Hohenstein through the exhibition The Two Halves of Martha Wilsons Brain on the occasion of the finissage.

Performance Dance
Where Do You Wanna Go Today
All the ingredients for great entertainment are there: a little drama, a dash of irony, plenty of songs, some art. But there is something else to this performance, and the solo figure, PRICE, a fictional character created by Mathias Ringgenberg, hints at this in all its depth. At mumok, as part of the ImPulsTanz festival.

Music Live
It’s that time of year again: The musicians Sea Urchin and Jung An Tagen will play at Karlsplatz. At night, Femme DMC invites you to Club Roxy with a full cast of DJs. Free admission!

Music Party Live
The WAA observatory and Parken are joining forces to celebrate the total lunar eclipse with music by Pita / Peter Rehberg, Robert Schwarz, Mariah Does Not Carey, Inou Ki Endo, and Specific Objects at Café Luftschloss Cobenzl.

Saturday - July 28

Performance Dance
What Christine Gaigg touched upon in »Maybe the way you made love twenty years ago is the answer?« she leads on now in Meet: more condensed, open and sensually experienceable. At mumok, as part of the ImPulsTanz festival.

Music Live
For a year and a half Tocotronic have kept away from clubs and stages. During this live break, the band re-invented itself as a collective and recorded the album »Die Unendlichkeit«. On Saturday they will play at Arena Wien.

Music Party
In this summer issue of Mutter, the DJs Laminat, Gerald VDH and Bort will make you dance at Club SASS. It will be sweaty!

Sunday - July 29

Music Live
Do not miss: The musicians Lukas Lauermann, FARCE, Battle-ax and Andreas Spechtl will perform in the sacred atmosphere of the Karlskirche. Free admission!
