Arts & Culture

Where artists create spaces for inspiration and critical reflection.Their visions and poetic utopias invite you to look at areas of social tension from new perspectives.

Installations, performances as well as literary, visual, and musical works make this perceptible, visible, and audible. International cultural institutions, artists, and local scholarship holders conceive and realise experimental and interdisciplinary works that are specifically tailored to the European Forum Alpbach. Let unusual encounters and unexpected situations surprise you!
