Letters to the Editor

September 2008

To the Editor,

You are making quiet the feministic statements as far as bringing to light for example sexism in Austrian advertisements or the usage of bimbos.

I was wondering how you would suggest that companies should advertise their products to a sex craving public if pictures, such as the one accompanying your article, are no longer acceptable?  I am of the opinion that in today’s society it is a sad but true fact that sex sells.

We as a society pay more attention to that kind of stuff, I mean look at yourself, you are bringing this subject to the attention of the masses.

To the Editor,

I was wondering if the Burg Theater had been rid of its horrifying graffetit.

I agree very much with the fact that this is atrotious and should not be acceptable in a city as beautiful and culturally renown as Vienna.  Who is Tokio Hotel anyways?

To the Editor,

I was very pleased to see the write up by Matthias Wurz’s of the stunning installation by Stefan Knor in Stephansdom.

We stumbled on it by chance when on our way to dinner, and it took our breath away. We had heard nothing about it, and though it was one of the most astonishing modern works of religious, or more accurately spiritual art we had ever witnessed.


Thanks for giving it the attention it deserved.

To the Editor,

I picked up The Vienna Review at one of the newsstands in July, and I was very impressed with the reporting on the on the EURO 2008.

I particularly liked the Croatian Fan Fest, which was really a great description of the Stephansplatz preceding the game. Indeed I felt like being back in Zagreb, but what a great atmosphere that afternoon! And a great performance by the Croatian team!

Thank you for this nice English contribution to the games.
