The 15th District – The Neukölln of Vienna

Neukölln, a few years ago still the sink estate of Berlin, meanwhile has blossomed out into the newly discovered scene district. The critical reputation which has been sticking to the borough due to poverty and social disadvantages earlier, has given way to a spirit of optimism and a growing cultural importance. Today, especially young people and tourists find some sort of a smooth run-down atmosphere, new music and shops with trendy vintage furniture there. The present Neukölln is exuberant, lively and full of opposites. The 15th district of Vienna has been experiencing a quite similar transformation for some time now: Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus, Vienna’s 15th district, has been regarded as the capital’s unbeloved stepchild in former times as it caused many negative headlines. Street prostitution, brawls and drug trafficking were almost daily fare. Even so, deprived areas are always attracting artists and students as the rent is still cheap there. Hence, the poorest and youngest district is currently changing and well on the way to become as versatile and innovative as Neuköln. The Reindorfgasse is the best example for the ascent of the 15th district: it has developed from the muck corner into a creative scene and therefore into a meeting point [...]

Musical Highlights in November (1)

Even if the temperatures are slowly falling again and one only wants to hide oneself away at home, we will not let the approaching winter get us down! Because in November, some really special musical acts will come to Vienna that you should not miss out on: The Gorillaz On Thursday, the 2nd of November, you will experience a real phenomenon in the Stadthalle Vienna: the Gorillaz! The special thing about the band is that it is fictive and consisting of four comic characters. The Gorillaz were brought into being in 1998 by the British singer Damon Albarn and the illustrator Jamie Hewlett as an answer to the replaceable artists on MTV. The cartoon characters all embody stereotypes which however got equipped with their own biographies and characteristics. There are no real persons behind the fictive band members, but rather a changing group of musicians and producers. After the in 2001 released debut album “Gorillaz” has been sold more than seven million times, the group entered the Guinness Book of Records as the “most successful virtual band”. On their tour, the latest album “Humanz” will be presented by the “Gorillaz live Band”, consisting of founder Damon Albarn, Gabriel Wallace, Mike [...]

Staycation – Vacation at Home

The neologism “Staycation” is composed of the words “stay” and “vacation” and therefore stands for a mix of staying at home and having a holiday. This travelling refusal is totally in vogue at the moment! But how can such a vacation at home even look like? Slow movement You are stressed out because of your always the same daily routine and are desperate for a change of scenery, but at the same time you only want to relax and recharge your batteries? Then, Staycation is absolutely the right thing for you! Because even if travelling is an exciting diversion, it nonetheless means stress. First packing, then sitting in traffic, rushing to get the flight and at the travel destination seeing as much as possible - this is how a holiday often looks like. When you arrive back home, you feel anything but recovered and scarcely ready for returning to your everyday working life. Staycation is the knowingly decision against this unrest and for a slow movement and besides even much more sustainable. But in one’s own four walls one cannot breathe completely easy either, as one has to cook, to do the dishes afterwards, to put the rubbish out and [...]

Musical Highlights in Autumn

The temperatures are cooling down, the days are becoming shorter and the leaves are falling from the trees. But this still is not any sort of reason for declaring the year completed and only lying around lazily on the sofa! With our musical highlights, we will even put the biggest autumn grouch in high spirits again, for sure: Joel Brandenstein The German pop singer became popular due to his soulful cover songs on YouTube in the first place. But meanwhile, Joel has also written his own songs like “Polaroid”, “Zeitmaschine” and “Farbenmeer” which have stormed the charts in no time.
