TQW's goal is to make arts and culture accessible to everyone. Our focus is on inclusion, accessibility and individual assistance. Community is key. We want to bring you as close to the creative process as possible and hope to make contemporary dance and performance more visible.

We work together with artists from our performance programme to develop formats for individual visitors and groups (in accordance with Covid-19 protocols). Let our technicians take you on a guided backstage tour. Sit in on rehearsals as well as introductory and artist talks for an ultimate experience of the artistic process and don’t miss out on an exclusive meet and greet with the artists – check out our event series Knödel mit Ei for further information.

We are also happy to accommodate individual requests. For special group rates, please contact our TQW audiencing team. Contact: Theresa Rauter /

Knödel mit Ei (dumplings and egg)
Meet & Greet at Café Sperl

The intimate setting of Café Sperl, located at Gumpendorfer Straße 11, 1060 Vienna, will give a selected group of interested visitors (only four people for now) the opportunity to get to know the artists, to chat, have a meal and drinks together – all in a safe environment and with the required social distancing in place. As TQW’s guest, you can either choose between cake (our personal recommendation is the Zwetschkenfleck – a kind of plum tart) or Knödel mit Ei (dumplings and egg) and a drink.

For the project SWEDED TV, artists Barbara Kaiser and Jakob Lena Knebel will join forces with Augustin street newspaper vendors and Forum Obdach Wien participants to create a unique TV experience.

Barbara Kaiser + Jakob Lena Knebl

No broadcasts on any global TV channel: A motivated group of Augustin vendors and Forum Obdach Wien participants accepts this challenge and sets out to create a unique TV experience together with artists Jakob Lena Knebl and Barbara Kaiser. Dates for the public screening of SWEDED TV will be announced on

Barbara Kaiser‘s artistic practice focuses on collaborative creative processes, the deconstruction of conventional narratives and experimental forms of music and radio art. She is cofounder of Vegetable Orchestra and has been on tour with this grassroots ensemble internationally since 1998. She is part of the Vienna editorial division of radia on Radio Orange since 2007. radia is an international radio art network comprising 25 different radio stations from Europe, Australia and the US. In 2003, Barbara Kaiser, Ingrid Schlögl and Tamara Wilhelm founded the collective z.b.: … Since 2008, Kaiser and Wilhelm have continued as a duo and their focus has shifted from pop stage shows to performances, installations and experimental music. Between 2001 and 2012, Barbara Kaiser was head of animated film and sound workshops at Zoom Trickfilmstudio until she accepted the same position at Museumsquartier.

Jakob Lena Knebl‘s works question the construction of identities and desires across different genres, material dimensions and disciplines. She creates ambiguous multimedia installations, “spaces of desire”, which oscillate between humour and sensuality. In recent years, Knebl has mostly worked on projects for public spaces and has taken part in many international exhibitions. Most recently, her works have been shown at Georg Kargl Fine Arts and LENTOS Kunstmuseum Linz. She will take charge of the Austrian Pavilion at next year’s Venice Biennale together with Ashley Hans Scheirl. Works presented at TQW include the recent performative installation Wir sind Henkel. Starting October 2021, Jakob Lene Knebl will be Professor of Transmedial Art at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.

A project in cooperation with Aktion Hunger auf Kunst und Kultur, Forum Obdach Wien and Augustin, supported by Erste Bank’s MehrWERT sponsorship programme.
