Die Ausstellung „Blend Together“ von Janine Schranz und Daniela Zeilinger, die im Rahmen der diesjährigen Foto Wien bei Mz* Baltazar’s Laboratory präsentiert wird, schließt thematisch an die gemeinsame Ausstellung „Passepartout“, die 2021 im hoast in Wien zu sehen war, an. Galt die Aufmerksamkeit im letzten Jahr Prozessen des Auswählens, Croppens und Ausblendens, stehen diesmal Situationen der Transparenz und der Überblendung im Zentrum. Ging es im hoast um Techniken der Inklusion und Exklusion innerhalb einer gegebenen Architektur bzw. innerhalb des Bildfeldes, so wird die Ausstellungssituation bei Mz* Baltazar‘s auf Möglichkeiten der Kommunikation zwischen Innen und Außen, von Kunstwerk zu Kunstwerk, sowie zwischen Realraum und Bildraum befragt.


The exhibition “Blend Together” by Janine Schranz and Daniela Zeilinger is presented at Mz* Baltazar’s Laboratory and part of this year’s Foto Wien. It thematically continues a joint exhibition called “Passepartout,” which has been on display at hoast in Vienna 2021. While last year’s show  focused on processes of selecting, cropping and fading out, the emphasis now is on situations of transparency and blending. While at hoast the focus was on techniques of inclusion and exclusion within a given architecture or within the image field, the exhibition at Mz* Baltazar’s Lab will examine possibilities of communication between inside and outside, from artwork to artwork, and between real space and image space.

Short Bios

Janine Schranz (*1985, Switzerland) is a visual artist and photographer currently living in Vienna (AT). In her practice she explores the (pre-)conditions of photography, its components and interrelations with architecture. Labor conditions, recording processes and the exhibition context play equal roles as working materials. In its essence, she understands photography as a time-based medium and puts bodily-spatial experiences in relation to visual perception and questions forms of (un-)documentation. She studied photography (Zurich University of the Arts, Switzerland) and transdisciplinary arts (University of Applied Arts, Vienna).

 Daniela Zeilinger (*Linz/Austria) lives and works in Vienna. She studied fine arts at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna as well as dance, context, choreography at the UDK Berlin and free art at the Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee. The artist works at the interface of different disciplines, especially painting and photography. An ontological reflection upon the space of photographic images is a central motif. Her works, as analogue photographs, are created in a multi-layered process of transformation and translation. They oscillate between image and imagination, and photography and painting. Zeilinger’s works have been presented in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Germany and abroad. In 2020, the artist received the State Scholarship for Artistic Photography.

!BZ presents: Live and Audio-Reactive w/ TouchDesigner

“Live and Audio-Reactive w/ TouchDesigner” is a workshop using the node based visual programming language TouchDesigner, a tool that allows to create visual content that is generative, audio-reactive and runs real time. This is of interest if you are interested in the fields of live cinema, installations, interactive installations and/or vjing.
This workshop includes a brief introduction to TouchDesigner and its interface, so it’s suitable for a beginner level.
It will focus mainly on how to interpret audio input to generate audio-reactive visuals, such as, 3d transformations, translations, and point-cloud simulations. In this workshop, you will learn how to achieve this but also how to get yourself to experiment and make it your own.
It is required of you a laptop with the latest version of TouchDesigner already installed. It work on both Windows and macOS. Please try it beforehand, you will need to register and create a key in order to use it for free. But don’t worry, it’s not too as complicated as it sounds!

Breeder or Sucker;

The Tv Show

Breeder or Sucker; the TV show is a production about the lives and failures of art school students. The viewer follows a group of young people who are struggling; to secure an education; to be offered exhibitions and to get laid.

Breeder or Sucker delves into the mundane “everyday” aspects of being an artist. The series is made up of ten episodes, each 20-40 minutes long.

The scripts satirize situations of privilege and failure, whilst unapologetically commenting on female sexuality. The episodes also indulge in the time wasted procrastinating and partying.

Each episode is played out through the eyes of Charlotte Gash, a character based on the artist’s semi-autobiographical experiences. Gash uses cardboard props in her work – highlighting absurd and humorous aspects of real life.

“He makes us laugh to make us learn. There’s salvation in that.”

– John Lahr discussing Joe Orton’s play Loot


Charlotte Gash is a British artist living and working in Vienna. She is currently completing her MA from the Akademie der Bildender Kunst under Carola Dertnig in the performance class. Gash takes inspiration from humorous, everyday situations and her work takes the form of text, sculpture, performance and video.

Making.Artistic.Technology: Elizabeth Losh on FemTechNet

Artistic Bokeh in collaboration with Mz Baltazar’s Laboratory presents a discussion with US media theorist Elizabeth Losh on

‘A Woman’s Touch: Pink Collar Workers and Feminist Origin Stories’

Wednesday October 28, 18:30 – 20:00
Raum D, MuseumsQuartier
(Achtung: diesmal nicht in Mz Baltazar’s Lab Raum auf der Sechshauserstraße)



In recent years there have been a number of significant theoretical shifts in the study of digital media.  By emphasizing the material, situated, contingent, embodied, affective, and labor-intensive characteristics of digital media rather than friction-free visions of “virtual reality” or “cyberspace,” theorists of media archeology are also expressing their concerns about present-day power relations around apparatuses and interfaces and signifying interest in collective consciousness-raising efforts.   As science and technology studies (STS) and tactical media play a greater role in media studies, international feminist collectives like FemTechNet and the Fembot Collective are growing.  At the same time, cyberfeminist work from decades before – by seminal figures, such as Lynn Hershman Leeson, Faith Wilding, and Shu Lea Cheang — is gaining recognition.  Unfortunately elitism can insinuate itself into these discourses by ignoring women’s long history of engagement with computational media as low-status pink collar workers and how they continue to supply manual labor in the supply chains of digital media today.



Elizabeth Losh is the author of Virtualpolitik: An Electronic History of Government Media-Making in a Time of War, Scandal, Disaster, Miscommunication, and Mistakes (MIT Press, 2009) and The War on Learning: Gaining Ground in the Digital University (MIT Press, 2014) and has been a co-facilitator of FemTechNet, an international collective of feminist scholars, artists, activists, and learners who work with and about technology. She is also the co-author of the comic book textbook Understanding Rhetoric: A Graphic Guide to Writing (Bedford/St. Martin’s, 2013) with Jonathan Alexander.

She has also written a number of frequently cited essays about communities that produce, consume, and circulate online video, videogames, digital photographs, text postings, and programming code. The diverse range of subject matter analyzed in her scholarship has included coming out videos on YouTube, videogame fan films created by immigrants, combat footage from soldiers in Iraq shot on mobile devices, video evidence created for social media sites by protesters on the Mavi Marmara, remix videos from the Arab Spring, the use of Twitter and Facebook by Indian activists working for women’s rights after the Delhi rape case, and the use of Instagram by anti-government activists in Ukraine.

Before coming to William and Mary, she was Director of the Culture, Art, and Technology program at Sixth College at U.C. San Diego, where she taught courses on digital rhetoric and new media.  She is also a blogger for Digital Media and Learning Central, and a Steering Committee member of FemTechNet.
