No art without alcohol. The artists' bar has a rich history in Vienna, more than perhaps anywhere else. Why do artists not only build but also go so far as to run bars themselves? Why do we give in again and again to the dubious charms of bars? With an introduction by Thomas Miessgang.

The first Vienna Biennale aims to combine art, design, and architecture to generate creative ideas and artistic projects that help improve the world's problems. Maybe it wants too much. Our author puzzles over the problems of the event itself.

The idiosyncratic, low-budget productions of Austrian filmmaker Daniel Hoesl narrate exemplary disruptions and upheavals with mischievous and post-heroic defiance of standardized milieus. Following eight shorts, Soldate Jeannette is the media arts graduate’s first feature-length film. The film, which has won international awards, revolves around two women, each running away from something, who meet at a countryside bowling alley: Fanni, who hails from the upper middle class, is broke and seeks to escape the strictures of a life ruled by money; Anna, the younger woman, can no longer bear the machismo on the farm.
