Gruber geht.

John Gruber is in his mid-thirties.
He lives a fast, pricey, and egocentric life in the finest district of Vienna.

Businesstrips to Switzerland and  hook-ups with the hottest women in town ,just to forget their names the next morning, is his daily life.
If there was an Award for being Anti-family/social/assholy, Jonny Gruber would probably win every category.




Unexpectedly diagnosed with cancer, he is thrown off track; also by the involuntary bearer of the news: Sarah, a DJ from Berlin, who is actually not really his type and he got to know on a businesstrip as a ONS.
But it will no longer be a short encounter - their paths will cross more often then they thought.



Normally Gruber has no need for emotions – but suddenly, without being asked, they pop out of the sealed coffins he strained them to.

I had the pleasure of seeing this motion picture by Marie Kreutzer at the DIAGONALE 2015 in Graz.
I have to be honest that did not expect something only nearly that well put together.

Starting from the costume design by Monika Buttinger to capturing the current look and feel of the "Wianer Oaschloch" (Viennese Asshole) and not the least because Bob Dylan has always been close to my heart.

After the screening Kreutzer said she thinks that she is sometimes like Jonny in the movie and that is the reason he is the main character she can identify with.
I would also say everyone has a jonny inside somewhere.




A very moving Film about and 
a comedic odyssey of self-discovery based on Doris Knecht’s successful novel “Gruber is leaving”
published by Rowohlt Berlin Verlag.

The "Problem" with being me.

When you grow up you go through different phases or times in your life.
These manifest themselves in the way you dress, the music you listen to, the political views you get or set as a standard for yourself.
At some point i got to an age where i thought "okay i have to be grown up now"
And that involved bundling up my past and letting it be - even looking at what i thought was right back then or belittling the essences of my former lifestyle (music, politics, etc).
The years i have spent living in Vienna where just everything - literally filled with pretty much every situation one can imagine.

I got empowered.
I was dragged down. I gained many new friends.
I lost many old friends. appreciation. rejection.
Love.
Pain.
things that we as overall would call LIFE.

In all of this my biggest problem was to find a group i belong to or to have friends who are truly my friends - not seeing that the friends i had the longest already where all i needed. Very slowly and probably only over the last thre…

Hetzendorf BA Show 2013

Kind of a hassle was made about the Hetzendorf fashionschool BA Show yesterday.
So my expectations were set high.
were they met? - uhm... well partly. All in all the show was nice and well prepared but there was an overall look the every collection.
Very scandinavian - wide cuts - big "vibskovy" jackets and coats and such.  Also the current trend of 90s jackets and pants was   seen throughout the collections.
Hardly any cuts that caught my eye. But again - the overall look was okay. Just nothing really new or neverdonebefore designers. no key looks.
Some hat designer showcased 4 looks but only 2 hats? If they have one year to come up with 4 looks minimum i dont know why unfinished pieces are even allowed over runway? #thingsidontget

Beautiful Helena Severin @ Wienermodels in Jana Wieland

Some Shoe designer showcases great shoes in the dark with only the models mobile-phone shining on the feet - or directly at the face of the model - BOO!
(The shoes were shown on the back screen and looked…

This artist doesn't need an explaination. I think the pictures speak/yell loudly for their selves.

so much to be said from my side - I find his art grand!
