Dear hearties, friends of flying heads and furious posters,
please feel hotly invited to the 100 Poster Club! Since we love clubs (remember, remember the infamous PostProloClub) we are awfully happy to announce that there will be more and this time it’s all about posters and limo. Most importantly the 100 Poster Club is a tribute to the wonderful VBKÖ for being around for 100 years now.
The club is there to meet and chat and bring our thoughts, attitudes, statements and wishes on paper and on the streets of Vienna. Ideally it will take place every two weeks until April 1st 2011. To make it easy we will provide the basic tools, indispensable poster knowledge and many other wasteful amenities. And we will each time propose a topic out of the big wonder world pot. For every club there are 9 rules to be announced. So that you know what we are talking about, here they are from our pilot episode (that took place a week ago):
1: don’t stop the hip hop
2: ice ice baby (es gibt tutti frutti becher)
3: hot topic – make a poster 4 your ur most desired revolution
4: der club heisst nicht Printers Club, sondern 100 Poster Club
5: Männer müssen Stöckelschuhe tragen
6: keep a hot head!
7. technikshow: cutouts und collagen (don’t forget to bring your hot stuff for the cutouts)
8: wir trinken eisgekühlte coca-cola und Pfefferminzlimo
9: einmal die Stunde wird ice ice baby von Vanilla Ice gespielt
And to make sure that we provide enough sticky stuff to drink for you send us an e-mail now and let us know when you come – to the next club, or the club after the next…

The next club will take place on Sunday 25th of July 2010, 5pm!
On the occasion of the centennial anniversary, a program for the year will be presented, which is composed of theoretical activities and a growing annual exhibition. Currently, works by 100 Poster Club, Amanda Amaan/Rudolfine Lackner, Elke Auer/Esther Straganz, Linda Bilda, Veronika Dirnhofer, Lina Dokuzovic, Drogerie and Nino Jaeger are on display. All of the activities refer to the historical origin of the VBKÖ in the androcentric totalities of institutions and to current links of resistance predominantly imprinted by feminism.
Curator: Rudolfine Lackner
