a project by Michikazu Matsune
with Thomas Geiger, Marlene Hausegger, Barbara Kraus
Andrea Maurer, Frans Poelstra, Oleg Soulimenko

The first edition of Homesick Festival was launched in Vienna in 2017. Initiated by performance-artist Michikazu Matsune, collaborating artists for the Vienna edition were Thomas Geiger, Marlene Hausegger, Barbara Kraus, Andrea Maurer, Frans Poelstra and Oleg Soulimenko.

Welcomed into over 30 homes, the project was received with zealous interest and enthusiasm by the residents of Vienna. Audience situations varried from an intimate group of 5 people on a Sunday afternoon to a home-party with over 30 people on a Saturday night.

Thanks to all the hosts who welcomed us into their homes, and their friends, family and neighbours who made this a great experience altogether!

Performances and interventions included Living Room Demonstration (T.­Geiger), Break Your Leg (M.­Hausegger), Johnny & Yetti (B.­Kraus), You dreamt that (A.­Maurer), Be Unreal (F.­Poelstra), Something about transparency (O.­Soulimenko) and Moving and Being Moved / Some People / Flash Back (M.­Matsune).
