FRIDAY, 25 September
Katharina Senn & Alex Ruthner | Terror+Martina | Salvatore Viviano
Katharina Senn | Freelance Curator and Video Artist
Alex Ruthner | Artis
It will be a surprise set, but to get in the mood listen to this:
Salvatore | Artist, Art Dealer, Model, Actor, Socialite, Muse, Anthropologist and Megalomaniac.
He loves to be a DJ and doing it for more than 15 years. Salvatore started in Paris where he created a party against the Fashion Week (Fuck La Fashion), where people had to dress really ugly to get in. It was at Les Bains Douches.
His DJ sets are basically performances, but in reality they are just a hysterical mess: Rihanna in conversation with Vivaldi and Ella Fitzgerald. And Madonna with herself.
Terror+Martina | DJ Duo
The DJ Duo Terror+Martina was founded after ten years of passive club experience, because girls wanted to rock the decks by themselves. There have to be more female DJanes in the electronical music scene! The first official DJing for them was this summer at the donaukanal. These days Therese (Terror) is totally into the project ‘Business riots’ of the Viennese female network sorority. Martina is part of the sorority committee too and in the exhibition management of the MAK. At the viennacontemporary after hours they are going to play deep house with big disco vibes.’
