Salon Souterrain is a format of the underground art space „Chateau Rouge“, created by performance-visual artist Elisabeth Bakambamba Tambwe, as a response to certain exclusionary dynamics within the European society. In partnership with violist Lena Fankhauser, founder of (CH)AMBER- an association for new chamber music, Salon Souterrain delves into various aspects and approaches towards this issue. It is a place of hospitality, a melting pot of people, styles, and ideas, and it engages in the systematic practice of dialogue. It looks at works created in all forms of artistic expression, but also includes the voices and presence of contemporary thinkers, writers, philosophers, activists, scientists, etc. In collaboration with Red Edition – Migrant Sex Workers Group Vienna, Salon Souterrain will deal with issues that link art and prostitution in various categories: prostitution as art, prostitution as a topic in the arts, the art of prostitutes.
