Bullshit through a Viennese bullhorn

For the next three days I'm in Vienna attending and performing at Vienna Art Week as The Munchausen Docent, an unreliable art tour guide shuttling between commercial galleries telling lies about the work on display -- dispensing bullshit through a bullhorn, or flüstertüte, as the Austrians call it. The performance is curated by local art magazine Spike.

Momus: The Munchausen Docent

AN DER HÜLBEN 2, 1010 VIENNA

"Momus (named after the Greek god of satire) is mainly known as a musician and blogger, but also makes appearances as an art figure and performance artist in international galleries and museums. Thus, for example, he accompanied the 2006 Whitney Biennial, serving his “disinformation mission” as an “unreliable tour guide” with political to absurd commentaries."
