Les Thermes – Opening

-
Congress Centrum Alpbach
Culture / Vernissage
German and English language

Immerse yourself in the philosophical way of thinking, body and mind: we will have a spacious pool ready for you on the roof of the Congress Centre. In it, you will find 25,000 black balls, each of them printed with an aphorism from the School of Stoicism. Our contemporary take on an antique thermal bath throws into relief the fast pace of the Forum. Here, you will find a place to linger and contemplate, a space for open discourse!

DI David CALAS

Managing Director, Studio Calas, Vienna; Lecturer, University of Technology, Vienna

 David Calas, architect, urbanist and lecturer at the TU Vienna - Faculty of Architecture, operates between the blurring boundaries of urban planning, architecture, art and politics. Focus of his work at Studio Calas is the relation of design practice and socio-cultural process. The modus operandi concentrates on accessible and clearly communicated design approaches and the implementation of digital inquiry strategies.

Array Halory GOERGER

Artist, France Distraction, Lille

 Halory Goerger creates shows and installations instead of building houses or repairing animals because it’s better like that for everyone. He works on the history of ideas, because everything else was already taken by the time he came along.
 Born in 1978, lives in France. Author, visual artist and performer.
 Selected works (solo or collective): Métrage variable (2004-2011), Bonjour concert (2007), &&&&& & &&& (2008), Germinal (2012), France Distraction (2012), Corps Diplomatique (2015), Il est trop tôt pour un titre (2016), For Morton Feldman (2017).
