Viennale 2015

its this time of year again!
Vienna turns into a huge screen for national and international projections!

Every now and again, time plays a special role. Today, as we hold this press conference for the Viennale 2015, the city is facing a crucial election. We announce a festival that will begin once this election is decided. Without being overdramatic, it feels a bit as if we were in an interim time, in a transitory state. This situation also reflects how important it is to defend a cause and a form at any time. Or, as a wise man once said: “to let neither the power of others, nor our own powerlessness, stupefy us.” Or as another one sang, “The Time is Always now.”

As the innovations we introduced last year have proven to be successful (the extension of the festival by one day and adding the new Eric Pleskow cinema hall in the Metro Kinokulturhaus as a venue), we have decided to stick to these changes. Moreover, the festival will take place in familiar fashion in the long-established cinemas in Vienna’s first district and the festival center, located in the former Austrian federal post office headquarters. Indeed, it is a distinctive feature and partly contributes to the Viennale’s special character to have the wonderful option – compared to many other international film festivals – of presenting our program in a number of selected single-auditorium cinemas in the heart of the city

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.
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
