What is Taugshow?

The flat hierarchies of talk shows are about as 
subversive as NYC Democrats smoking dope. But 
count us out! We won't produce a talk show. Nope. 
We produce a TAUGSHOW! Which means: we dig it. 
Our guests are geeks, heretics, and other 
coevals. A joyful bucket full of good clean 
fanaticism, crisis, language, culture, 
self-content, identity, utopia, mania and 
despair, condensed into the well known cultural 
technique of a prime time TV show.

Host: Johannes Grenzfurthner.
Content Manager: Roland Gratzer.


Taugshow #9 (Roboexotica Special) was recorded at 
dietheater/Konzerthaus, Lothrinerstrasse, Vienna 
/ Friday, December 8, 2006 / 8:00 PM.


Taugshow #9 / Guests:

/// V. VALE

In 1977, Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti 
each gave V. Vale, a clerk at City Lights 
Bookstore, $100 to begin publishing "SEARCH & 
DESTROY," now called by Jello Biafra "the best 
punk magazine ever, combining in-depth 
interviews, lists and reference material with 
artist's photographs and layout." After eleven 
issues in a tabloid format, V. Vale launched 
Adolescent Records and then was the first 
American hired to start Rough Trade Records 
U.S.A. He subsequently convinced Rough Trade 
founder Geoff Travis to back the first issues of 
"RE/Search" (a pun on Search & Destroy). After 
three "RE/Search" tabloids, Vale's publishing 
took a turn towards a book format, beginning with 
a ground-breaking, still-classic issue featuring 
William S. Burroughs, Brion Gysin, and Throbbing 
Gristle. Other early books published by Vale 
include Mike Bloomfield's, "Me and Big Joe," 
Kathy Acker's "Great Expectations," and Terry 
Wilson & Brion Gysin's "Here To Go." At the same 
time, RE/Search began producing videos, music 
compilation CDs, and live events and concerts. 
The RE/Search series includes the "Industrial 
Culture Handbook" (just re-issued in a beautiful, 
limited edition hardback), four books involving 
J.G. Ballard (two recently: "J.G. Ballard 
Quotes," and "J.G. Ballard Conversations"), two 
books involving PRANKS, "Incredibly Strange 
Films" and "Incredibly Strange Music," the 
ground-breaking "Modern Primitives" (credited 
with "launching" the tattoo/body modification 
movement), and other volumes of noir historian 
author Daniel P. Mannix, noir writer Charles 
Willeford, Wanda von Sacher-Masoch of Graz, 
Austria, and others. RE/Search's latest book is "PRANKS 2."

author and editor of over twenty books on sex and

presenter twice, and over ten years at Survival

Sex has made iTunes cry for its mommy at least 
once. To visit her site, remove one item of clothing and click tinynibbles.com.


Oliver Hangl was born 1968 in Grieskirchen, 
Austria. Hangl, who originally startet his career 
as actor and stage designer in 1993, is just as 
active in performative disciplines and medial 
spaces as he is in classical fine arts exhibition 
sites. His current works, which are not tied to 
one medium, are marked by breaks in reality, 
doublings, and in between realms. Hangl is 
involved in a broad range of activites, in which 
he frequently switches between the positions of 
artist, actor, producer and/or director.

/// Visuals:


La Trinchera (the trench) is an Austrian-Mexican 
sound and projection collective based in Mexico 
City. La Trinchera found its beginnings in the 
First "Festival of Improvisation" staged in 
Mexico City, february 2004. Since then, La 
Trinchera has operated as generator of impulses, 
as a "free fire zone" and as a call to 
experimentation. Risking the clash of individual 
creative spirit in the immediacy of a visual 
situation, La Trinchera has successfully brought 
together more than 20 artists of many diverse 
world views. Four of them are guests at 
monochroms taugshow: Rafael Balboa (handmade 16mm 
film-loops), Manuel Trujillo (handmade 16mm 
film-loops), Aisel Wicab (handmade slides), Doris 
Steinbichler (overhead projector).
