Arts and Culture


Artists are seismographs of societal change. Their work has always been an integral part of the European Forum Alpbach. The new format "Artist in Discourse" provides the centrepiece for this year’s cultural agenda: Artists are invited to engage with the general theme "Diversity and Resilience" for an entire day.

From performances to exhibitions: All Alpbach symposia begin with artistic interventions; using abstractions and eliciting emotions, the language of art ties the individual programmes and disciplines together. The productions, which will be realised in close cooperation with institutions such as the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (London) and the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, seek to confront and sensitise the audience to the issues at hand, entering into a sort of complicity with the audience to enable new perspectives. We invite you to transcend visible and invisible boundaries together with the artists.
