- curating a program for Vienna Independent Shorts

- documenting the festival

- developing a new film


I was invited to take a residency at MuseumsQuartier by Vienna Independent Shorts who asked me to curate a program for their Cat Video Festival. The work of a curator is different from the work of an artist, so I didn’t need any technical equipment or art materials — I just wanted a space where I can take my time and put up a program. And MuseumsQuartier is amazing for this. My room had a great location with free access to the museums, a lovely garden and nice neighbours.
After a month of work all was concluded at our final event on June 14th, 2013, at the Jesuitenwiese (Prater) with 1,500 people in attendance to see what we have done.
