John Cage, who composed a number of the works being performed at Wien Modern 2018, had a very special relationship witih mushrooms. In 1959, the mushroom expert won 5 million lire in an Italian television quiz, he wrote a number of mushroom recipes and a beautiful book of mushrooms illustrated with drawings. This »Mushroom Book« forms the starting point for an installation in the Wiener Konzerthaus by Vienna-based artist, Claudia Märzendorfer.
