DIY riot girrrls used paper booklets as a megaphone for creative manifestos.
A medium to dissent, inform, and play.
Learn how to make a simple book from one piece of paper and some basic book making techniques from glueing, printing, to distribution.
Tools and materials will be provided. Bring your ideas.
By the end you will be ready to start your own D.I.Y. press at home, at work and with friends.

“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.

Friday Exit Proudly Connects:
Mz Baltazar’s Laboratory | OutSight (O.K.O)


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.

22/12 :: Collage & Videoinstallation von Maria Hera im Rahmen der Ausstellungsreihe "Luftsteuer"

Collage & Videoinstallation von Maria Hera 
im Rahmen der Ausstellungsreihe “Luftsteuer”


Vernissage: 22.12.2014 // 19:00h
Ausstellung: 23.12.2014 – 09.01.2015
Mz. Baltazars Laboratory


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.
