Surrounded by an electric, nostalgic and somehow contemporary vintage scene, we are meeting at one of the most underestimated places Vienna offers us!

We’ll have a ceremonial procession performance to celebrate the launch of our publication. It will be followed by a full of sentiment, selfies and fun party between a sauna, strip pole, Schiele paintings and a shower where you can sit to keep those political discussions and drinks coming while #YourLoverIsStalkingMe !

The project

‘Sentimental Defense’ is the publication resulted from an 8 artists retreat in the French town of Cassis this last February. Within the framework of emotions and sentimentality, the publication is a collection of forced touches, the permanent loss of physicality, the struggle of emotional traces as “leftovers” of former humanity and the desires for intimacy all locked in devices surfaces.
