rollstuhlmegaphon2VALID is a campain organised by Theatre of the Oppressed – Vienna and DanceAbility Austria
concerned with “Arts in Public Space – barrierfree accessibility – sensitive language”.

The cause of this campaign is the so-called “Invalid Street” in the third district in Vienna.
If language creates reality and reality creates language, then a critical exploration of concepts like “valid” or “valuable” means asking the
question of which kind of valency disabled people get in our society.
Do we really want a street which marginalizes disabled people and yet, puts them in a negative centre at the same time?
Does this kind of language really reflect our current reality?
Do we want to reproduce upon this reality instead of building a new one?
