Arts and Culture are everywhere! What's special about C/O Vienna Magazine is that it not only writes about creatives, but produces its stories with them, throwing all the rules of classic cultural journalism overboard. C/O Vienna is primarily an interview magazine – with a twist! We let a NASA astronaut tell us about beauty, talk to a nun about feminism or to a butcher about his love for animals.

Editor In Chief
She is founder and chief editor of C/O Vienna Magazine. She’s always out there launching something new because what she’s looking for doesn’t exist – for example, the fantastic REDAKTIONSBUERO OST. She publishes books, directs films, writes screenplays and texts, takes care of (almost) all of the business matters, and privately collects way too much vintage clothing. Her journalistic passion is dedicated to art, architecture, fashion and all those people out there doing remarkable and daring things. If you really want to know more , click here.
