Festival of Vocabularies Life: Smashing Wor(l)ds: Cultural Practices for Re/imagining and Un/learning Vocabularies is a multimedia festival in search of cartographies of immersion and affective vocabularies of historical memories. We want to create word utterances outside the only truth of universal knowledge. We want to smash the world and recreate other worlds through our words. What is going on in our minds? Are we talking about the future or only about everything that is happening at the same time? Are we talking about escape routes to other possible invented worlds? Invented by whom and for whom?

Concept: Marissa Lobo, Galina Baeva (kulturen in bewegung), Henrie Dennis (ARA), Marina Gržinić (Prof. in charge of PCAP at AkBild Wien); Silent University in Austria (Helmut Ege, Birgit Waltenberger in collaboration with Versatorium, WIESE), Queer Base (Faris Cuchi Gezahegn).

Artistic Producers: Negin Rezaie, Mika Maruyama, Marissa Lobo
