AVE should be understood as an integrated concept that fuses various types of art and culture within the ‘spirit’ of a particular feeling of life.

In what kind of area AVE mainly acts depends a lot on what kind of current circumstances the members are in, just as it depends on their interests and others involved.

AVE`s most important source of inspiration and a kind of conceptual ‘frame’ – knowing that the limiting meaning of this word could be confusing – might be the mythic figure of the greek god Dionysus (also known as Bacchus in Roman mythology), just as different modern conceptions of the ‘Dionysian’ which were defined by Friedrich Nietzsche and his many successors.

AVE places emphasis on connecting the ‘Dionysian’ with motives, subjects and ‘new myths’ of speculative fiction literature, while especially the masters of this genre Edgar A. Poe, H. P. Lovecraft and E.T.A. Hoffmann have to be mentioned as important influences.
