“UNCANNY MATERIALS | FOUNDING MOMENTS OF ART EDUCATION”
Group Exhibition, Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna 11.03.2016 – 16.05.2016
I composed a piece as part of an installation created by Zsuzsi Flohr and Eduard Freudmann. The piece wove audio clips of the “Was sie unterliesz” performance with double bass and bells. This is part of a larger group exhibition which explores the history of the Academy of Fine Arts during the Nazi period.
Variety show,This project brings the destroyed artistic form, “Kleynkunst” back to the stage and updates it with contemporary twist: At the KleynKunst Theater, Vaudeville from the 1920s encounters queer performance art, and Yiddish hits from Moldova meet cabaret from Berlin.

Performance and Intervention in public space by Zsuzsi Flohr, Benjy Fox-Rosen, Eduard Freudmann, Eva Reinold, Luisa Ziaja (2015) June 13, 2015
The project dealt with commemoration culture in public space in Vienna. It linked the elements of ritual, discourse and intervention in a performative setting. It consisted of a panel discussion, a choir, an actress and an crew of workers who illegally erected a monument dedicated to those who had illegally erected a monument on that spot in 1951. The performance took place on June 13, 2015, at Morzinplatz in Vienna wihtin the Framework of Into the City/Wiener Festwochen.
