The performance HAPPYMETAL will take place at 6pm and 8pm as part of Queering the KHM in the exhibtion Iron Men in the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien.

With his all-encompassing tenderness, strength without fear of getting hurt, and a brave “Yes”, Corsarca transforms himself into a queer knight, donning his armour to roam the galleries of Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna.

„I have to fight for my gay-justice, I have to protect my mirror image! How can I protect happiness without being evil?“
In eight chapters Cosarca walks through the museum to take a stand. Wearing a transformative armour between cyborg and mother, between sound, video, and speech performance, Alexandru Cosarca wants both to protect himself and break a lance for the queer community.
