Mz Baltazar’s Laboratory

Mz Baltazar’s Laboratory is a weekly event taking place in Vienna (Austria), specifically for persons who call themselves women or trans. If you love to make things, rather than consuming them, meet up at Mz Baltazar’s to share your skills. Mz Baltazar’s participants come from different backgrounds, ages and mindsets to exchange equipement, build circuits, play with DIY electronics and interactive art. We encourage each other to learn new tools and collaborate. All workshops are free in order to offer a fearless, accessible plattform. We capture the mainly male connotated domain of electronic tinkering. The artwork created at Mz Baltazar’s Laboratory is generated with Open Source Soft- and Hardware. Through the process of demythifying technology we enable ourself to use our creativity in and autonomous, self- determined and pleasurable way.
Mz Baltazar’s Laboratory sessions also take place within the framework of different Media Art festivals such as the Transmediale in Berlin and at different Art Universities such as the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.
