Out and about - City Tour

On the occasion of the Día de los Muertos on November 1st, one of the most important Mexican holidays, the ar/ctivist and dramaturge Gin Müller and the Austrian-Mexican medical examiner and human rights activist Ricardo Loewe call for a historical walk across Vienna’s Mexikoplatz. Starting at the memorial stone at Mexikoplatz, the audience will learn more about how the square got its name, what role Mexico played as a country of exile and how the relationship between Mexico and Austria developed in the 1920s and 1930s.

Moreover, Müller’s and Loewe’s talk will address the current situation and narco-capitalism in Mexico. The 43 students of Ayotzinapa, who disappeared in 2014, will then also be a topic in Gin Müller’s new production FANTOMAS MONSTER – Part 2/Mexico, which will be shown by brut in late November and early December at Theater Nestroyhof Hamakom.

For Out and About, artists and the audience fan out to explore the city. This can include anything ranging from joint walks to meetings at special places and strolls in shopping streets. These city tours can lead off beaten tracks, question established views of the city and open up new perspectives.

Ricardo Loewe was born Mexican. He is the son of Jewish parents of German and Austrian descent who had fled to Mexico during the 1930s. Loewe grew up, studied and worked as a community physician and human rights defender in Mexico. He spent the last 16 years of his active professional career as a medical examiner of torture victims. Loewe is deeply rooted in Mexico and with his work contributes to the international solidarity against military dictatorship and for democracy and justice in his native country. Loewe is married to a Viennese, and the couple has decided to spend the final period of their lives as pensioners in Vienna.
