Culture / Vernissage
in englischer Sprache

This year s Standing Committee, the IG Alpbach Senza Confini, celebrates its 10 years anniversary. On this occasion, it organises an exhibition focusing on the driving forces behind the ideas of the European Forum Alpbach. Old black-and-white photographs from the first years of the Forum will be re-enacted on their original locations. This comparison of originals and reproductions serves as a bridge between the past and the present and establishes a link to the origins of the Forum.
