Entry: Free! (Limited places, first come first served)

Have you ever dreamed of dancing at night on a rooftop, oblivious to the people below? Then boy do we have the thing for you. Head to the rooftop of Hotel Lamée where you’ll don a set of headphones and choose between two DJs to listen to. They’ll be bringing you House, Electro, Charts & HipHop vs. Alternative, Oldies & Classics. This sounds like a great way to disguise just how out-of-sync our dancing is with the excuse “we’re listening to a different channel to you.”

Before this preview screening of “Abschied von den Eltern” (Farewell to the Parents), you get to hear a reading by actress Dorothee Hartinger from the book it’s based on, which is an autobiographical work by German-Swedish writer, Peter Weiss. Then you’ll get a talk with the filmmaker, Astrid Johanna Ofner. No ‘Multi angle’ feature is available, but you could keep switching seats in the cinema.

Albrecht Dürer

When: September 20–January 6
Where: Albertina
Entry: 11€ aged under 26, 16€ aged 26+, buy a ticket

We recently tried to draw an elephant and, even though we’ve seen elephants, it ended up looking like the concept art for The Human Centipede (i.e. not good). Which makes the fact that painter & printmaker extraordinaire, Albrecht Dürer, once drew a very life-like rhinoceros, based only on a WRITTEN DESCRIPTION, make us want to cry in shame. Anyway, the Albertina have a very special treat for all you artsy fartsy people – they’re showing a once-in-a-century exhibition of this master artist’s work. They’ve gathered more of his works (over 200) than have been seen together in one exhibition for decades.
