With Norbert Stammberger he organises the yearly festival Tubax Super Session in Munich, dedicated to the tubax saxophone and other special instruments.

Katie Magician + Arma Dura - Katie Magician’s new media/performance pieces, which include video, sound, costume, and installation, use the lense of camp to enact the duties of magical female protagonists. Part angel, part alien, these divas float through lounge acts, variety shows, straight to TV movies, infomercials, and automaton-guided museum tours. The one-woman experimental performances consider the subtle differences between exploitation and empowerment and show how mass forms of entertainment can (techni)color memories. Collaboration with Arma Dura: transformable, wearable art.
