29th of November 2019, 6 p.m.
With Hubert Kostner, Stefan Fabi, Verena Oberhollenzer, Johannes Kofler, Simon Rauter, Petra Polli and Mandarina Muttertier feat. Emma@Robin
Seven artists have accepted an invitation to decorate the inner courtyards of the fortress with works related to the Advent season and to present these to the public together with a short text. With a critical view of the increasing commercialisation of Christmas and an examination of the themes of peace-building, appearance and reality, expectation and arrival, wishing and shopping, Hubert Kostner, Stefan Fabi, Verena Oberhollenzer, Johannes Kofler, Simon Rauter, Petra Polli and Mandarina Muttertier feat. Emma@Robin will be transforming the courtyards of Franzensfeste into an artistic journey that ranges from the contemplative through to the unconventional and the cheerful.
The opening of this special event, organized for the second time at Fortress Franzensfeste, will be on Friday, 29 November, at 6 p.m. Together with the artists.
