Langer Weg der Gastarbajt @Wienwoche 2016

22. September 2016 16:00 bis 3:00

An extensive stroll through Vienna’s 16th and 17th districts in the footsteps of Yugoslav immigrant workers, hosted by local legends and connoisseurs, marking the 50th anniversary of the recruitment agreement between Austria and the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY). The newly founded Platforma (Platform for Temporary Creation) takes the anniversary as an opportunity to spotlight the history as well as the political struggles of migrant labour – and connect it to the now and here.

Langer Weg der Gastarbajt leads from a former factory (now a cultural space) via a workers‘ association to work-places Gasterbajters that have become local legends, as well as bars, clubs and recreational places, all of which are central points of collectivity and team spirit. With the help of the programs‘ Master of Ceremony, Goran Novakovic, who will act as a guide through different locations and perspectives of the Gasterbajter experience, the stroll will display micro-programs consisting of exhibitions, readings, films, performances, music and dance.

Considering the dense repertoire of AU and its dedication to the musical and other exchange between individual and collectives from Vienna and post-Yugoslav spaces, the choice of this Club as the final spot of the Langer Weg der Gastarbajt is pretty obvious. Two bands (Live: Soda & Gomorra / NOW + DJ set: Arsyugoslavia) differently related to the Gasterbajter history and actuality will definitely wrap up the program in the most appropriate way!
