brut im Künstlerhaus/Vorplatz


Aktionslabor für politische Interventionen


Rebelodrom was initiated by Gin Müller and the Verein zur Förderung der Bewegungsfreiheit (association to promote freedom of movement). The project is a platform for various activist projects and a discussion forum for political action strategies. Part of the WIENWOCHE – it’s 2013 motto demokrazija-ja-ja dedicated to the principles of democracy – for ten days the plaza in front of brut will be transformed into a multimedia installation and stage. Along with the election headquarters and Action Lab, it is also the starting point for specific interventions in public space being carried out by various rebel groups. ‘Perverse’ party wings will be formed, ministries founded and organised rapper gangs will play Robin Hood. Participants include the groups Romano Svato, MAIZ, traschq (trans/gay/lesbian/queer advisory service of the Rosa Lila Villa) and Marea Alta. There will additionally be networking to projects from WIENWOCHE and to Refugee Protest Vienna. In early September the individual groups will be presenting their political back-stories and demands in the form of video clips at
The rebellious interventions in public space will also be documented here. Remain on the look out for these rebel attacks!

Gin Müller has been in brut previously in 2010/11 with the performance Who Shot the Princess? Boxstop Telenovelas and in 2012 with Melodrom – The Making of a Rebellious Telenovela. The activist project Rebelodrom is seen as the closing act of this thematic series.

Closing rally of Perverse Trachtenpartei  (performance/discussion)

The Rebelodrom team accompanied the Perverse Trachtenpartei  for weeks during their election campaign for the National Council. The documentation that sprung from this presents highlights of the best moments, from the Ovulation Lads, the Alpine Meadow Abortion as well as the Homo-Terrorist Training Camp in which the kidnapped dog of a local politician was trained to satisfy every human desire no matter how salacious.

During their concerts they also confront young immigrants with their election behaviour and put it to them plainly: immigrant fans of FPÖ politician Strache?!? The topics of racism between foreigners, race baiting and discrimination will be broached, discussed and dismantled. Specific intervention strategies of the RAF (Roma Army Fraction) will be presented and reviewed on this evening. A programme that will inspire you to dance, mull things over and take action.
