What is the UNARTIG Avantgarde Baroque Ball?

The Unartig Avantgarde Baroque Ball is a unique event that combines art, music, and dance within a baroque framework. It features an art salon showcasing my oil paintings and guest artists, followed by a party with a DJ and bar, all in an avant-garde baroque style.

What role does art play at the ball?

Art is at the very heart of and plays a central role at the ball, inspiring creativity and fostering communication among guests. The diverse artistic performances in the art salon and during the party forms a unique atmosphere that encourages visitors to express their thoughts and feelings in creative ways. The works of art I exhibit in the salon do not serve as simple aesthetic enrichment, but rather as a mirror reflecting complex personal, social, and cultural themes in an accessible and inspiring manner. During the party, guests are captivated by the artistic performances of the DJ, dancers, and live musicians, contributing to a dynamic and inspiring experience. In short, art at the Unartig Avantgarde Baroque Ball creates a vibrant and welcoming but also elevated atmosphere, pushing the boundaries of creativity and fostering deeper connections.

Why the Baroque theme and the choice of the Mozarthaus as the venue?

The Baroque theme reflects the cultural heritage of Europe and allows us to reinterpret these influences. It is a homage to the past while also being an expression of creativity and freedom. The Mozarthaus, once the home of Nannerl herself, provides a historical atmosphere that perfectly complements the baroque style of the event. This connection to the past adds an additional dimension to the event and enables us to reinterpret historical influences and give them a modern, avant-garde twist.

What does being UNARTIG (or naughty) mean to you?

For me, being naughty means, first and foremost, freedom. It's about breaking new ground, crossing boundaries and asking "what exactly ought not be and why?" Artists need this freedom because the definition of creativity lies in the creation of something new. Art and creativity are important for our society and economy because they promote critical thinking and problem-solving skills. These skills are critical in a rapidly changing world where innovation and adaptability are increasingly crucial. As a society, it is absolutely important to support and promote the arts and culture industry. Art is an essential component of a society's cultural identity and diversity. It contributes to the preservation and celebration of various traditions, customs, and perspectives, while also enhancing awareness of the diversity of human experience. It is also an important economic sector that not only contributes to the creation of jobs, but also makes a significant contribution to the economic development and attractiveness of our town, city and region.

Who contributed to making this event a success?

Art needs and relies on strong economic partners. I am therefore very grateful for the indispensable support from BMW Grasmann, Merkur Versicherung, Holzbau Hausjell, Kate & Kon and Wuchs. The Mozarthaus team, led by Constanze Passin, as well as the catering/bar at Café Nannerl (Michi Weiß) have supported and help realise this vision since the first year.
