It´s premiere night! Here is your chance, but only for a few days, to see a hilarious English play in Vienna, and, while you´re having fun, doing some good for the arts as well. Art For Charity and vienna theatre project are putting on Relative Values by the English playwright Noël Coward at Le StudioContinue reading “Relative Values”
One brand-new exhibition at the Albertina Museum is a must-see for photography lovers. (Actually there is another one that I also recommend at the Albertina Modern, part of the Essl Collection, but more on that another time.) The new photography exhibition Faces. The Power of the Human Visage showcases works by photographers from the 1920sContinue reading “I see you in black and white”
One brand-new, one that I almost missed, but thankfully did not: two exhibitions in black and white (and grey) are currently on view at the Albertina Museum. And wow, are they worth seeing! Shortly after Vienna´s museums re-opened after lockdown, I took the opportunity to visit Black White & Grey, an exhibition of contemporary large-scaleContinue reading “Big on drawing”
Before lockdown 2 in Vienna, which forced all our cultural institutions to close again this November, I managed to see the fascinating exhibition about the Aztecs at Weltmuseum Wien. A very worthwhile visit.
The other day IgersVienna were invited to a behind-the-scenes tour by Marco, co-founder of Riding Dinner Austria, to a behind-the-scenes tour of one of the old established Fiaker enterprises, Fiaker Paul. To me this was very special, as I love horses, but had not been in a stable in quite a while. I really enjoyed watching the morning routine, preparing the horses and coachmen for their working day.
For the second year now, the city of Baden near Vienna is hosting the photo festival La Gacilly-Baden, and all over downtown you can feast your eyes on outstanding photo-art. Huge photographs by acclaimed photographers from around the world grace building walls, line walking paths and frame baroque palaces. If the charms of Baden aloneContinue reading “A hymn to the earth in Baden”
In what I would call an eye-popping exhibition space with walls in blazing red, blue and green (I love it!), the Albertina Museum is showing masterpieces from the Princely Collections of the House of Liechtenstein in an exhibition titled “From Rubens to Makart“. The Liechtenstein collections contain major works of European art spanning five centuriesContinue reading “An art salon in a princely collection”
No, this is not a lamp shop. This past weekend, I visited a really intriguing light and sound art installation by the artist Johannes Rass in the industrial-historical ambience of the “old technology” event space at Ottakringer Brauerei. Lumen, light, the stuff you need for life and photos. Also, lumen, the technical measure of theContinue reading “A symphony of lights”
The other day I got to see a contemporary staging of Macbeth at the gorgeous Musiktheater Linz, thanks to an instawalk with Igersaustria. We got a behind-the-scenes tour of this impressive modern theatre building and then saw a stunning dance and music interpretation of Shakespeare´s timeless classic about the deadly thirst for power at anyContinue reading “Bloody murder at Musiktheater Linz”
The city of Krems near Vienna is a veritable hotspot for art these days, pretty impressive for a town of this size. (Krems has just under 25000 inhabitants.) Last Sunday Instagramers Austria organized another fantastic instatrip (I would call it “Krems reloaded”, since in early September we also visited some art exhibitions that are partContinue reading “Back to Krems for more”
