Wiener Festwochen documentation

Documentation of the LABORBERLIN contribution to the INTO THE CITY Program during the Wiener Festwochen. During one week in Vienna LaborBerlin members converted a bus into a mobile lab and cinema. The bus was parked in Mexicoplatz and Volkertmarkt where it served as a free cinema and hub for workshops and film interventions by lab members. At the end of the week films produced during the week were screened on the bus windows in front of the Vienna Museum.
