Artist Talks


29 July, 26 August, 30 September 2021


As part of the 50x50x50 everything for everyone, artist talks will take place on three evenings at the Franzensfeste Fortress.


The talks will focus on the artists and their works. Their reflections and impulses will be discussed. How can the works be placed in the context of the exhibition 50x50x50 everything for everyone, what effect does the exhibition venue have on the exhibited works and where can we find reference points to the Euregio theme year "Transport, Transit and Mobility"?

Everything for everyone is the motto of this year's Biennale 50x50x50. Paintings, sculptures, installations, photographic and video works form the broad spectrum of the exhibition. The works deal with a wide variety of current topics and contemporary issues, which form the focus of the artists' talks. These take place on the last Thursday of each month, starting at the End of July.


The nature we take from
29 July 2021, 7.30 pm

We are surrounded by a breathtaking natural world. But today, more than ever, it is becoming clear what a dilapidated state the world's ecosystems are in. How irresponsibly humans treat the environment, animals and plants. Biodiversity is declining more rapidly than ever before, more primeval forest is being cleared than ever before. Nature, with all its beauty and mysticism, is threatened and in decline. But also the efforts and the voices to protect our nature are getting stronger and louder.

With Paula Prugger, Sonya Hofer, EXPERIMENTAL SETUP, Martin Pöll, and Helmut Nindl.

In German.


Everything seems ephemeral
26 August 2021, 7.30 pm

There are moments that are captured, that are inscribed in our memory. Special moments are captured on photographic paper to be preserved. But what remains really of the past? How can memories, things and deeds outlast time? How fragile is our present? Are there any certainties or is everything constantly threatened by abrupt and unpredictable changes? In the end, the question arises whether constant change is not the security we are looking for. Because it is the only way to keep everything in motion.

With Gino Alberti, Maria Stockner, Hanna Burckhardt, Raphael Mur, Matthias Schönweger, Italo Bressan, Markus Gasser.

In German and Italian.


We demand equality
30 September 2021, 7.30 pm

As long as there is no equality, we must demand it always and everywhere. It seems to be the most natural thing in the world and all the more astonishing is the vehemence with which the equality of all people in society continues to be fought. Everything for everyone is not only the motto of the 50x50x50 but our demand. Everything for everyone and everyone is equal, the same rights for everyone, a decent life for everyone, everyone! As long as this is not realised, art and everyone must Stand up for it. We can all make our contribution to an equal society.

With Katharina Cibulka, Dalia Parisi Stix, Ingrid Heiss, AliPaloma and other discussion partners who will illuminate the topic from different perspectives.

In German and Italian.
