International Performance Art Festival


Wed.  28.08.  -  Sun. 01.09.2019


RESIST! Vienna! is an international performance art festival featuring 26 artists, attempting to offer answers to personal experiences of exclusion, repression and social restrictions.

RESIST! Vienna! supports voicing dissidence in front of neoliberal, patriarchal hegemonic normative pressure. Freedom not as a hollow phrase but being lived supporting tolerance in a world on the edge.

After RESIST! México! Now for the first time RESIST! Vienna!

RESIST! Vienna! curated by Doris Steinbichler.

Doris Steinbichler won in 2001 the Mexican Performance Art Prize and the Mexican Radio Art Prize. She lived for over 15 years as a sound and performance artist in Mexico and is a traveler between the European and Central American world.

As an artistic strategy, she uses analog visuals and voice improvisations to make visible, audible, overlapping, and contradictory perceptions. Her works span genre and media, moving between performance art, noise music and visual art.

In 1999 she founded the art space "Epicentro" in Mexico City in which she showed  more than 100 events and productions between installation, performance, photo, video, multimedia, electronic music, dance and spoken word.

Just like the RESIST! Vienna! (2019) and RESIST! Mexiko! 2019, she is also responsible for the initiation and organization of the week-long radio festival "Remediar - the unofficial radio biennial" (2001), the Expander Cinema and the analogue projection collective "Trinchera Ensamble" (Mexico, 2004) and "4shrooms" (Austria, 2007).
