? ES IST ALLES GESAGT+++ ICH WERDE NICHTS MEHR KOMMENTIEREN+++IM ZWEIFELSFALL ZIEH ICH ES KÜNFTIG VOR ZU EXPOLDIEREN+++ ?
The artist Eva Jantschitsch aka Gustav, who lives in Vienna, ranks among the exceptions of the Austrian music scene. Her political and sociocritical texts focus on current issues of her generation. The musician and ?independent media worker? has often been seen in the tradition of Elfriede Jelinek or Thomas Bernhard because of her critical statements on the downside of globalization, the excesses of capitalism, the dismantling of the welfare state, and the effects of patriarchal structures. WIRD EXPLODIEREN (WILL EXPLODE) is a literary intervention in the form of a reflection on recent politically tense situations and highly charged events ? a statement oscillating between anger and feelings of powerlessness.
Besides productions and compositions for the stage and film, Gustav published her debut album Rettet die Wale (Save the Whales) in 2005 and her second album, Verlass die Stadt (Leave the City), three years after.
