Upcoming Literary Events


Labyrinth, the Association for English-Language Poets in Vienna, invites you to an evening of open-mic poetry reading. Express your admiration, passion or despair and show the world that Vienna has not lost its  sensibility. The event is open to anyone with a predilection for rhymes and all languages are welcome, as lyrical talent knows no boundaries. And what better place to host it than Cafe Kafka?

Starting point of this reading is family dysfuntionality. What are the things that bring families together and what those that pull them apart? An evening of reconciliation with past and present frustrations hosted by Cafe Huber for all of those who need to hear that there are others out there who feel as big of strangers to their blood kin as they do. An event supported by Wortwerft with Daniel Krcal, Clemens Marschall, Hermann Niklas, Karl Resel, Maria Seisenbacher and Roland Steiner.

The glass exhibition displays some of O. R. Schatz’s (1900-1961) most representative works that ever made it public and commemorates 50 years since the day of his death. The Austrian artist is best known for his innovative graphic designs and paitings, some of which served as book covers for prominent authors like Stefan Zweig (Phantastische Nacht 1929) and Upton Sinclair (Co-Op 1937). Other parts of the collection include contributions he made to newspapers, brochures and public pannels.
