TRAUMAWIEN est. 2010 was always meant to be an ephemeral space, an experimental venue where things constantly change and shift. Enigmatic and hard to define, TRAUMAWIEN does not follow the rules or fit a traditional definition. Focused on internet, books, publishing as art and digital publishing, we remain an outsider presence. We displayed the work of emerging artists such as Audun Mortensen, Ulrich Nausner or UBERMORGEN.COM. In 2011, we released our own Augmented Reality software. We bootlegged Oswald Wiener’s die Verbesserung von Mitteleuropa and released award winning books on conceptual writing.We completed our publication series with automated ebook systems on piracy and advertising and held rave lectures all over Europe. Since 2010 our goal was to promote, show and work without making profit. We pushed the boundaries and focused on the inseparable connection between books, art, internet, new forms of writing and reading and books and the book as object. And our prints will now become rare collectibles. Read more books. The end is only the beginning of something else… January 2015 luc gross
