“Wir möchten das OÖ Kulturquartier als einen außergewöhnlichen ästhetischen Erfahrungsraum etablieren”, sagt der künstlerische Leiter Martin Sturm. Bespielt werden nicht nur die klassische Ausstellungsräume, sondern auch Gänge, Stiegenhäuser, Dachböden und Teile des Höhenrausch-Daches. Der neu renovierte Ursulinensaal ist der dramaturgische Abschluss des Rundganges und wird damit auch dem Ausstellungspublikum vorgestellt.

The big “rausch” exhibitions mounted since 2009 are ambitious art outreach programs. “We have created this format with the aim of inspiring a greater appreciation for art in broad sections of the public,” says Dr. Josef Pühringer, Minister-President of Upper Austria and Cultural Advisor. Unusual exhibition locations and artworks that strongly appeal to the senses are ideal for this purpose.

the exhibition concept of ORBIS PICTUS PLAY culminates in the pivotal work The Heart in the Ursulinensaal. The instruments and objects here are all “analog” and function without any electronics, computer technology, recorded music or film clips. They have therefore somehow “fallen out of time and are for that very reason all the more present,” says Director Martin Sturm. Human energy is the only force that can breathe life into them, setting them in motion and making them produce sounds.

at the end I saw a quiet communication in a room installed in memoriam the recently died Austrian sculptor Bruno Gironcoli:


The time before a date last week to interview Dr. Gerald Matt – director of the KUNSTHALLE wien – for the magazine PANNOrama, I was engaged to take some photos from architecture, lounge, café, restaurant & curiosities around the Kunsthalle at Vienna. And to visit the current exhibition, too. – You will find among the photos a link to “1989. Ende der Geschichte oder Beginn der Zukunft? – Anmerkungen zum Epochenbruch  /  1989. End of History or Beginning of the Future? – Comments on a Paradigm Shift“.  An article about current cultural affairs will follow soon.

“The curator is the servant of the artist” – an easy saying  by Gerald Matt but high aim for a person with artistic ambitions as I sometimes get aware of his own work.




Primary School Achau, Lower Austria: with the kids out in the fields around school, surrounded by growing corn. Siegi & me tried to let them face nature in spontaneity but keep them all the same concenterating on pouring, meditating & painting water & acrylic colours on their boards. afterwards examining the results I noticed: I did not mention Austrian painter Hermann Nitsch! (compare here)

Volksschule Achau, Niederösterreich: mit den kindern & lehrern ziehen Siegi & ich raus aus der schule zu den sprießenden maisfeldern vor dem ehemaligen kuhstall des schlosses Achau, in welchem am 26. Juni 2009 das abschlussfest mit einer vernissage der gelungendsten ergebnisse unserer malsessions stattfinden wird.

last week at Primary School Achau again: the pupils eagerly taught last  lessons  about work & techniques of well-known artists I ordered them to use their  favorite art material by own choice – seemed first a remarkable  step backwards –  but final result & work-in-progress-stills show it was a step forward:













besides the pupils painted all together in team-work a big canvas for exhibition at the end of our sessions
