Dear Austrians,

Nations and the nation-states built upon them are a historical invention.
An invention of the bourgeoisie.
Invented by it for the purpose of enforcing its own political and economic interests.
And the same goes for you, dear Austrians:
Invented for the purpose of enforcing political and economic interests.
Get the feel of that.
Sing along with us!

A play for a performing artist, a choir, a Viennese electronic DJ, and a pop culturalist.
