Looking for something to do this weekend? Then get over to the Austrian city of Graz.
As part of its celebrations as Cultural Capital of Europe, it will be holding a symposium on 'Rhetorics and Scenarios', part of the four-month Sacher-Masoch Festival.Topics will include the life and works of Leopold and Wanda von Sacher-Masoch, sexual identity, the masochistic body, fetishes and rituals. Not your cup of tea? I must admit, I'd rather stick needles in my eyes.
