Our new project for young people from Vienna, and the further development of the pilot project „Real Heroes are Different“ from 2018. „Democracy, what’s up?“ is an integrative cultural mediation project for and with youth and young adults in Austria. Through a playful exploration as well as a hands-on engagement with various art forms, participants are offered a positive personal narrative and an identity-boosting sense of self-efficacy in the collective. The project is funded by the Austrian Ministry of Social Affairs in the area of diversity and equal opportunities and is primarily aimed at young people who are structurally disadvantaged or experience marginalization.

Lockdown Stories (working title) is a film workshop project in cooperation with the Arbeiterkammer (Chamber of Labor). A selected group of youngsters received the possibility to develop and create a short film with the help of professionals. The short film is about the challenges that the corona crisis put the youth into. From their point of view, we learn about their personal feelings, their struggle of being isolated, and the importance of social cohesion. The project was initiated and led by Mahir Yildiz.


What a Take off! The first block of our short film had a promising start at the Aqueduct Liesing and Steinbruch Kaltenleutengeben. Sadly the flight turned out to be a short one. Due to contact to a Covid-19 case of one of our team members and a subsequent categorization into a K1 case we had to swallow the bitter pill and stop the shoot. At the moment the continuation of the shoot is planned for the next year sadly.


Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting restrictions for events of such dimensions we are sorry to announce that our interdisciplinary and transmedial installation SINNKLUSION won’t take place as planned in january 2021. We are currently looking forward to a better situation in autumn 2021!


An interview with Alireza Toghiyani and Mateusz Wiglinzki about their last exhibtiion PROCEDO in Die Schöne. The video shows impressions of the event and the artists‘ work process.


We are proud to announce:

PROCEDO is an audio-visual installation project by Iranian composer Alireza Toghiyani and the German-Polish experimental photographer and filmmaker Mateusz Wiglinzki. By turning away from an inflationary image and sound culture, Toghiyani and Wiglinzki shifted towards experimentation. Based on Wiglinzki’s photographic work, Toghiyani developed a sound composition that later merged into a series of audio-visual installation objects that dissolve the boundaries between different artistic disciplines. The basic idea of transformation and process-oriented work is the focus of their work.

Opening hours:

DO 24.9 20-22 Uhr
FR 25.9 19-22 Uhr
SA 26.9 18-22 Uhr

Galerie Die Schöne – Kuffnergasse 7, 1160 Wien – Austria


The Corona pandemic had all hit us hard but we could not resist to use the additional time to advance our projects or even plan and initiate new ones!

After six months of extensive and intensive meetings with experimental composer Alireza Toghiyani the pre production phase of our art installation PROCEDO has been completed. A series of tests and assembly will follow this summer before the planned exhibition following autumn.

While the finalisation and adaption of the concept of our other trans medial and interdisciplinary art installation SINNKLUSION had revealed some technical difficulties, an evaluation of new collabarations with experts in the field of olfactory sciences seems to be a promising next step to complete the pre productions phase this year.

Also the absurdity of our experiences in the past two and a half months inspired us to develope a short film script with the working title CORONA DAYS which is planned to be shot in next month.

And last but not least a new collaboration with Adriana Zangl and Max Mutz resulted in the production of two pilots of a new interview format named ENE MENE SZENE which will go online next week.

More detailed informations concerning our projects will follow.

Take care!
