“Cupcakes are a recent economic, cultural, and social phenomenon and dare I say symbol of our times”
-Cupcake Rant 2011

A zine about the current cupcake craze turned into a  ghost-store installation resurfaces on Sechshauserstraße, promising cupcakes of a different sort, behind the door:  Mz Baltazar’s Laboratory.

Inspired by the international economic phenomena of guerilla cupcake bakeries and concept stores that pop-up -also- in Vienna, Vitrine showcased an installation-illustration of the visual narratives and intricacies behind the spongey facade of the cupcake industry: The many symbolic shapes this pastry takes from personifications to hidden economic and gendered ideologies, ranging from serious to absurd. -mostly absurd- In March, Cupcake Store will pop-up again at Mz. Baltazars even further down the gentrified street at Sechshauserstrasse.

And: The museum, biotope, and dysfunctional store invite to a zine-making workshop on the 18th of March.

14.2. – 5.3. (process open to public, stay updated for special events)
Finissage: Friday, 6.3., 7pm

Mz Baltazar’s Laboratory
is a weekly event taking place in Vienna (Austria), specifically for persons who call themselves women or trans. If you love to make things, rather than consuming them, meet up at Mz Baltazar‘s to share your skills. Mz Baltazar‘s participants come from different backgrounds, ages and mindsets to exchange equipement, build circuits, play with DIY electronics and interactive art. We encourage each other to learn new tools and collaborate. All workshops are free in order to offer a fearless, accessible plattform to tinker with male connotated toys. The artwork created at Mz Baltazar‘s Laboratory is generated with Open Source Soft- and Hardware. We see the process of demythifying technology as a fun way to articulate ourselves and become creative.

OutSight (O.K.O)
The art group OutSight was founded by Franziska Faust, Lena Violetta Leitner, Lena Marinova und Steffi Neuhuber in Octobre 2010 to avoid the existing traditional hierarchies in theatre and cultural activities. It is very important for OutSight to collaborate with women from different fields, so that a network is being created that inforces
women to express themselves in an artistic way. OutSight experiments with media art, music, dance and performance and therefore creates multidisciplinary works (installations, performances, concerts, videos). Recurrent topics are reflections about ideals in the society and heteronomy.

Anna T. “Opaque Spaces of Language” Screening & Discussion :: 28th Jan :: 18h

Anna T. “Opaque Spaces of Language” Screening & Discussion :: 28th Jan :: 18h 
at Mz. Baltazars Laboratory

Anna T. is a multidisciplinary artist researching queer subjectivities, language, and performativity. In this presentation she will be exploring aspects of privacy, communication, and performativity in the form of sub-cultural (queer) slangs and ideas of kinship and group membership that derive from them.

The languages are explored through ideas of passive resistance, opacity, and embodied performances, drawing from J. D. Katz, E. Glissant, and N. DeVilliers, and pose questions on the mechanisms of concealment, exclusion, and community formation, that seem to intersect them.

The 20 minute video deals with issues of physical space and the notional space language constructs. Sound becomes then a protagonist taking the viewers through spaces empty of bodies, creating parallel narratives.

Der deutsche Name „Schmetterling“, 1501 erstmals belegt, kommt vom slawischstämmigen ostmitteldeutschen Wort Schmetten (Schmand, Rahm), von dem einige Arten oft angezogen werden. Im Aberglauben galten Schmetterlinge gar als Verkörperung von Hexen, die es auf den Rahm abgesehen hatten, worauf auch frühere landschaftliche Bezeichnungen für Schmetterlinge wie Milchdieb, Molkenstehler oder ähnliche hindeuten. Die englische Bezeichnung butterfly weist in dieselbe Richtung und entspricht dem regional gebräuchlichen Buttervogel, da die Tiere beim Butterschlagen angelockt wurden. Das altgriechische Wort für Schmetterling war ψυχή psyche, gleichbedeutend mit „Hauch, Atem, Seele“.

Die Installation in den Schaufenstern von Mz Baltazars Laboratory befasst sich mit dem Zusammenspiel von Produktionsprozess und fertigem Werk. Wir sehen zum einen eine art media-hacking, die glatte Oberfläche der uns umgebenden Medienbilder wird aufgebrochen, hinterfragt, herausgelöst. Dem Körper wird seine Verletzlichkeit zurückgegeben. Drei Schmetterlinge, schälen sich heraus jeder für sich eine eigene Welt, jeder eine eigene Geschichte die entschlüsselt werden will.
Gleichzeitig lässt uns die Videodokumentation in den oft verborgenen Produktionsprozess selbst eintauchen.
Es entsteht ein irisierendes Spannungsfeld zwischen Information, Desinformation & Assoziation, das den/die BetrachterIn dazu einladen will, den Pfaden jener Schmetterlingswelten zu folgen, ihre Geschichten zu entdecken und eigene Geschichten und Welten zu formen.

READING GROUP : : 12.November 2014

Unser nächster Lesetermin widmet sich Hannah Arendt und findet am 12.November um ca. 19h statt. Texte werden miteinander Vorort gelesen und beplaudert. Bei Wunsch können wir sie auch zusenden.

 

 

Was […] so außerordentlich schwer zu verstehen ist, ist die einfache Tatsache, daß es menschlicher Existenz eigentümlich ist, daß ihr Freiheit nur unter der Bedingung der Nicht-Souveränität geschenkt ist; und daß es ebenso unrealistisch ist, um dieser Nicht-Souveränität willen die Freiheit zu leugnen, wie es verderblich ist zu glauben, daß man nur dann frei sei – als einzelner oder als organisierte Gruppe –, wenn man souverän ist. Auch die Souveränität eines politischen Körpers ist immer nur ein Schein, der zudem niemals anders als mit den Mitteln der Gewalt aufrechterhalten werden kann. (Hannah Arendt, Freiheit und Politik)

ATTINY workshop for beginnners : : November 5th : : 7pm

Many might have heard of Arduino and Arduina already, a microcontroler board that makes it easier to translate e.g. touch into light, variable distance between people into changing tones of sound, increasing brightness into increasing motor movement…

ATTINY can do the same, but is much cheaper and smaller. It allows many new applications since it only needs 2,7 – 5,5 Volt. It could be more sustainable and accessible for uses in the global south, but is also popular in wearable technology.

In this Workshop we will program an ATTINY to receive input in form of a sensor and create output in form of light. You are welcome to bring own electronic parts that you would like use in your little project.


EXAMPLES OF THINGS TO DO WITH ATTINY:
– electric menstruation calendar
– water quality tester
– noise instrument
– cat feeder
– sex toy
– robot
– disco light / bike light

– bird house add-on

– there are endless other ways to use it….

WHEN:
NOVEMBER 5th, 2014
7pm – 10pm

WHERE:
SECHSHAUSERSTRASSE 28
1150 VIENNA

THIS EVENT IS FOR WOMEN AND TRANS ONLY
DIESER WORKSHOP IS FÜR FRAUEN / LESBEN / TRANS

Please bring a laptop if you can
and download the Arduino environment on:
