The first implementation of the future biennial event series will take place in the summer of 2021. The program is historically linked to the summer retreat that emerged at the turn oft he 19th and 20th century, when the aristocratic elite but also artists retreated to Lake Hallstatt to use this secluded and multifaceted place as a source of strength and inspiration for their work.
The duration of the residency is one month. All artists* will work simulta-neously on site between 25.05. – 24.06.2021: Due to the interdisciplinary orientation of the artists invited for one month, the exhibition will have a festival-character.
