Café-Konditorei Mentone, Kirchengasse 7, 1070 Wien

Barbara Ungepflegt



A few guests enter a confectionery shop one late afternoon, sit, shove sweet nothings into their pie-holes and lose themselves in the mirror image of the display window. They’re taking a break from life. FINALLY. They arrived and slip into the microcosm of geriatric romanticism. Sugar daddies devour whatever comes their way and argue over  who gets the biggest piece of the placenta pie while the assistant waiter (a political sleepwalker) does everything she can in her powerlessness. Fortunately one of the regulars, an acquisition specialist, is here. He checks whether the biddy recently dropped off at the geriatric hatch has her diabetes under control. If she does, then she can leave after an espresso with milk, otherwise she’ll have to take two steps of care at a time, just like god, who trains to oldies in the confectionery shop to steel himself for the rush to disaster.

Barbara Ungepflegt sweetens her life with routine visits to the confectionery shop where she looks on and eavesdrops on reality to uncover its poetry. Site-specific, enigmatic and ambiguous, FINALLY revolves around the capacities and incapacities of ageing. Barbara Ungepflegt and her regulars make it possible: FINALLY become an unconcerned age-watcher!
