Back from Vienna for awhile now but I want to go back!
Das Jahr 2014 Hat Sowas Von Ein Rad Ab.
So many Ypsilons at the Cosima von Bonin opening.
Mary Messhausen, Doc Nancy and I were giving out sexy bureaucratic butt stampings that turned everyone into an avid collector. Because of all the hot red tape most people could only get 2 stamps. So if you have more than 2 THEN you must have 3 or even 4 stamps (if you were able to get Cosima’s stamp). It was all about the STAMPS!
They’ve been Yo Yo wifi dieting all day!
Thank you Cosian and everyone at mumok.

See you in Vienna on October 3rd for the opening of Cosima von Bonin’s exhibition HIPPIES USE SIDE DOOR. THE YEAR 2014 HAS LOST THE PLOT. Starts at 7pm at mumok.
The American-German-Canadian performance group Da Group will link up with further performers in Vienna to open Cosima von Bonin’s exhibition with a flamboyant show. Founder members Oliver Husain, Claus Richter, and Sergej Jensen will be joined by Stefan Müller and Simone Junker, and the group will perform under the name The Ypsilon Five.
Under the pseudonym Die 3 Ypsilons, Canadian-German neo-drag entities Mary Messhausen, Doc Nancy, and Produzentin will bring their own irresistible magical sexflair to the Cosima von Bonin exhibition opening.
Admission free, protective clothing is recommended
For the exhibition, Mary and I have done a video. Watch an excerpt below.

Last week Mary Messhausen and I were in New York for Cosima von Bonin’s opening. Surprise: It got a little bit messy. Mary kicked me to the curb and then she (as in I) lost in ring in all the garbageness. But it was so comfy.
Mary Messhausen and I will be dragging it up Thursday evening at 6 at Cosima’s opening in New York. Come by and pick a bone with us.

Saturday a week ago, I was part of the opening of Cosima von Bonin’s exhibition “The Fatigue Empire”. I had the honour of kicking people out of the Kunsthaus Bregenz. Sounds like the perfect job for me, right? My friend Doc Nancy was also there and drove the car through the 2nd floor of the Kunsthaus. Drink’n’Drive has never been more fun.
I started throwing people out on the 3rd floor by presenting “You Are Auf’d” postcards, which didn’t go down so well. Most people just wanted to stay. So, I said: “All cute people have to leave and you are very cute. Just look around, who’s left?!”.
And down the stairs they went.
Now you can call it performance. But when is a drag queen not performing? HELLO?!
Check out some pictures below and more after the jump. Even more pictures on flickr.
