Q: What is Gooey on The Inside?
A: Gooey on the Inside was an underground art, music and event organisation curated by Kati Cubby and Holly Fluxx that successfully hosted over 40 separate events (from 2007-2010).

Our events included art exhibitions, live music performances, dance parties, artist markets, workshops, skill shares, contemporary dance performances, writings, theatre performances, fundraisers, live video streams, panel discussions and fashion shows, as well as a combination of many of these simultaneously.

Highlights of Gooey On the Inside include:
- A live music and art event in Berlin, Germany (The Slumber Party)
- A live music and art event in Santiago, Chile (La Cunt Rave)
- A well received music showcase compilation cd (Hit Machine XXIVIVX), featuring Gooey on the Inside artists from Indonesia, Japan, Chile, USA, UK, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, and across Australia.
- An invitation to speak at This Is Not Art Festival 2008 on "How to start a scene from scratch"
- Producing our own specialist radio programs for 3CR and SYN fm
- Over 40 successful dynamic and diverse events spanning the course of three years
- Featured in an interview and full page spread in UK magazine "Super Super" as well as local Australian zines

Focusing on young people who identified as women, trans, queer, and people of colour, we strived to create space, agency, audience, support and a thriving, dynamic environment and build a community for our artists.

We have now moved on to other projects, but can be contacted via email: and

thanks so much
love kati and holly!

'V' - totalz babe crusty sparkel photographer and mega art maker!!!:

'I've photographed heaps of girls, but only 3 guys have ever answered the ad. One of them ended up being my muse, Hans, and the other two guys were freaks.'

V is so underground that you can't even google her. Cos her name is just one letter !!! 23 year old Berlin photographer, party starter and derelict chic, V is fluoro-grungey and totally cool.
Originally from Brisbane, Australia, V only meant to come to Berlin for one week. But she found herself entirely at home in the hot and bombed out streets of Berlin, where it's super easy to be poor and fabulous. Why would she ever leave?
V picks up bottles for the deposit money, and sells stuff she finds on the streets at Mauer Park markets (right next to the old Berlin Wall). Wearing a leather jacket with a slime green 'V' tagged on the back, and toting a Vivienne Westwood tartan bag, V photographs a rotating cast of sparkle-crust Berliners (no, not the donuts, the babes!!), on location and at her own studio, Studio V. And in the loft bar of one of Berlin's longest running squatted artist spaces Tacheles, V throws Thursday night parties with weird acts, heaps of graffiti on the walls and super cheap cocktails.
V also photographs bands, does vintage fashion shoots and holds open-call portrait sessions, via the website Craigslist. 'I've photographed heaps of girls, but only 3 guys have ever answered the ad. One of them ended up being my muse, Hans, and the other two guys were freaks. One was a fitness buff, he wanted me to take photos with his bike and then invited me back to the fitness centre under his house, and the other guy brought in a big hunk of salami to be photographed with. That guy also showed this naked video of himself on youtube.'
V makes dark synth-wave too, and because of her dirty blonde hair and super catchy grunge hooks, we're tentatively calling V this generation's Kurt Cobain. Listen to her music here:
