Summer in Floridsdorf ●︎ Grätzl Festival
Making Vienna’s art community more unforeseeable.
Let’s make art, dance and perform together!

by the performance collective DESIRÉE.
Venue: Am Spitz, Tuesday 13.7.2021, 18:00 [no registration necessary].
The performance approaches the topic of female* lust, which is often suppressed and not perceived, in two parts. Based on interviews and further artistic research, different perspectives on the topic are integrated. artistic research. A physical research by the two performers explores the field of inscriptions in skin and flesh and their translations into our everyday physiognomy. The second part of the performative installation & choreography will be a blood-red VW bus, which is both centre and exhibition space. Interviews will be conducted in it and the visual and audiovisual impressions so far will be exhibited and discussed with the audience.
Workshop: Extracting Hormones with Mary Maggic
In response to the various ways in which institutions both pollute and regulate our bodies through hormones, the Estrofem! Lab is developing various “Freak Science” methods to hack estrogen and demonstrate its molecular colonisation. From yeast biosensors for detection to DIY column chromatography for urine hormone extraction, these recipes serve as a kind of “biotechnical civil disobedience” that combines body-gender politics and queer discourse with civil science. The workshop will start with a short presentation followed by a hormone extraction activity (By the way bring your own urine!).
