BMR & ST in Vienna
In collaboration with Stefan Tiron, the Bureau extended its research on the Austrian context due to a key partnership with KulturKontakt. We questioned the rise of melodramatic strategies in the East-West relations considering Vienna's reputation as a cultural hub: Wien ist eine Drehscheibe für junge Künstler aus Ost- und Südosteuropa (die Presse, 17. November 2009, http://diepresse.com/home/kultur/kunst/522313/index.do).

In 2009 he started the Tschuessy Feng radio show. He indulges in his recent hobby for the cultural and ideological ramification of apiculture and beehive metaphors for the society at large.
