The 60th Eurovision Songcontest 2015 is history. What remains, after a week (actually for the viennese residents half a year) of Building Bridges and thousands of tourists more than usual, attracted from the oldest and biggest Contest, are
Zero Points for the hosting country and a shiny winner from the always friendly country Sweden.
Congrats one more time! Heroes from Mans Zelmerlöw was one of my top 3 from the beginning, too. Not because the sound is my cup of tea (it isn’t), but because I like the lyrics and the positiv and friendly openminded attitude. In short: Building Bridges. That’s what the contest is about for me. Life is going back to normal.
I call the MuseumsQuartier Vienna the Happiest Place in town. Everyone seems to be chilled when entering the courtyard. Art, leisure, culture, good food, nice drinks, fancy colors. All at one place. I was lucky to catch a sunny day last week as opportunity to have lunch here and had the pleasure of seeing the art installation associated with the ESC 2015.
EuroArt: 40 countries 40 artists and an Auction for a good cause.
Austrian Artists designed the MQ furniture for 40 different countries, which were on display from May 16 to 27th, 2015 in the courtyard and end in an auction for charity on the last day of the exhibition.
I liked the individual paintings and would have loved to see them at that happy place a bit longer.
