"Heya Girls!"
One of the reasons I am a self-confessed fan of Slovenia is Joze Plecnik. He studied architecture with Otto Wagner, designed in Vienna and Prague and then returned to his home country. The capital Ljubljana in particular still bears his mark today. He renovated the castle, built a bridge in 1931 on which he grew trees and created the beautiful market in the centre of Ljubljana. In the huge Slovenian National and University Library (photo), designed by him, you climb up black marble steps from darkness into light – and knowledge. I can only warmly recommend a trip to Slovenia to everyone. If you don't have time, you can see Plecnik's buildings in Slovenia from 27 June in a magnificent architecture exhibition in the Ringturm. And not only his main works, but many hidden, unknown works. A revelation!

Wishing you a nicely built week,
Your CitySpotterGirl

Vintagerie Furniture Flea Market
Nice legs, that lady! We don't want the 1960s image of women back, but the furnishing style of that time is a keeper. The mid-century treasure trove Vintagerie makes it possible: cocktail chairs and sofas in strong colours, colourfully patterned lampshades, mirrors with frames from old factory windows, chic tea sets, chests of drawers – vintage lovers are in seventh heaven here. Sounds pretty but too expensive? From today, the design paradise turns its shop and warehouse upside down and transforms Nelkengasse into a vintage furniture flea market – with discounted beauties up to 50% off!

Vintagerie, Nelkengasse 4, 1060 Vienna. 22-24 June Thu, Fri 12:00 to 19:00, Sat 11:00 until 18:00. Web

 Valie Export, Bildrecht, Wien 2023, Peter Hassmann
Valie Export Retrospective
Sometimes she walks with a man on a leash, other times she has her breasts grabbed through a cardboard box with holes in it: always at the interface of film, video and body art, Valie Export showed early on how negatively patriarchal structures affect the female body. Starting today, the current exhibition at the Albertina shows a retrospective ranging from Export's early feminist actions to her polarising performances and her body configurations. Among them are works that have never been shown before. Provocative, honest – today is the vernissage!

Die Duetten
They dedicate their hymns to all the scaredy-cats, their favourite foods, love, life, all the kind people and those who still want to become so thanks to their “duet method”. What is the latter? Isabel and Michaela's method for a great life. And they explain how it works with their dialect chansons at the “Wir sind Wien Festival”. Somewhere between new Wienerlied and hipster sound, they advise the audience in a charmingly crude way to “not shit yourself”. And while listening to the finest ear candy, you can train your abdominal muscles with laughter at the same time!

Festival of Tranquillity
Summertime is festival time! But while most people think of techno beats, beer fountains and the like, there are also festivals that celebrate just the opposite. The Festival of Tranquillity is one of them. For this, artist Florent Souly exhibits his tree observation system to be tested out in the Alois Drasche Park: Recliners have been placed under a tree in a circle, inviting visitors to lie down and dream themselves into the treetop. Plus, yoga sessions, planter painting and tree planting will take place under the largest tree in the park. Three days of events under a canopy of leaves. How beautiful!

Alois Drasche Park, 1040 Vienna. 22 June-24 June. Free admission. Programme online

Kevin Morby
The curly head from Kansas City wrote his songs in the Peabody Hotel in Memphis. He spent days daydreaming, and in the evenings he documented his experiences with only a guitar and a microphone. The result of dreamy melodies and a good dose of dirt sounds “as if you have taken a tab of something psychedelic and now, suddenly, you've replaced your eyeglasses with kaleidoscopes”. And it's exactly this rough-charming indie folk from their latest album “More Photographs (A Continuum)” that you'll be hearing tonight, so head to Theater Akzent!

Wild Fermentation of Vegetables
Fermentation is the hottest shit on the food sky right now, and it's also delicious and a hit with the digestive system. That's why today's Saturday will make intestinal bacteria as happy as taste buds, because you will be initiated into the secrets of lacto-fermentation! Under Ingrid Palmetshofer's guidance, lemon-mint herb and kimchi will be prepared today and will come home to ferment. Together with the necessary equipment and sound knowledge, so you'll dare to make delicacies such as curry herb, orange-cinnamon-fennel or coleslaw by yourself in the future!

Vienna Roller Derby
Last week's Pride Parade was colourful and glittery, and today's Vienna Roller Girls will seamlessly continue the rainbow theme! With the motto “Vienna Calling”, 5 teams from 4 countries will meet in 6 exciting matches, and the halftime shows are just as brilliant with drag shows, drag wrestling, stand-up comedy and the incomparable Schmusechor. Another urgent reason to drop by: the intermission performance of the one-of-a-kind (male) Fearleaders! Kinda obvious why this sport has long been a big hit in America!

War and Resistance in Neubau
If you would like to do something for your historical background despite lazing around on a Sunday afternoon, you can let yourself be transported back to the time of the Second World War on a walk through the seventh district today. Starting from the Neubau district museum, you march to places of courageous resistance, followers, persecution, forced labour and the Righteous Among the Nations. Monika Grußbaum, director of the Neubau district museum, tells of Neubauer people who are unjustly unknown and of those who were duly honoured. Fascinating!

In addition to tips on lighting conditions, situations and poses, there is a special focus on the interaction between people and images. What does photography mean to you? How do you meet people in front of and behind the camera? What story do they tell and what do you want to say with your pictures? All this is discussed and tried out. No previous knowledge is necessary, but a camera and a snack for the break!

Atelier Party at Mindquarters
Michaela and Walter have perfected the art of making a virtue out of necessity: To finance their Parisian lifestyle in the 70s, the couple tried their hand at selling self-made plaster masks on the street. It was a success, because business boomed back in Vienna, too. Now in a pretty studio, where they also sell other ceramic, porcelain and stone treasures, they invite visitors to a nice party today. In addition to the lush plants in the courtyard, there are many new works of art, a flea market from old stock and culinary delights from pots and bowls. Very nice!

Michelbeuern: College Fashion Show
Of the end of the world and the feeling of being newly in love, between construction sites and genderfluidity, between coincidences and timeless treasures – that's what the collections of this year's graduating class of the fashion college Michelbeuern (where fashion has been taught for over 100 years) tell of. The young fashion talents have worked diligently for four semesters and want to show off their skills at today's fashion show. A total of 17 students will present their work and take their first steps into the public eye with their fashion designs.

Patisserie Top02
You never stop learning. I am now aware of what chouquettes and entremet are – at Patisserie Top02 they are something similar to eclairs. And all three are the speciality of the new patisserie near the university. The incredibly elaborate sweets, freshly produced every day, look like works of art and taste to die for. Whether they are filled with strawberries and white chocolate or come as a lime-basil surprise, the traditional art of eclairs has been radically brought into the present here. The ambience is also modern: You dine at the gallery, elegantly decorated in dark blue and white.
