About the project

Discursive conversation formats in the DRAWING COLLECTION in SCHLOSS HOCHHAUS Vorchdorf in an open atmosphere and as a forum for an exchange of thoughts about visual art.

Symposium on the topic: The Value of Contemporary Visual Art Today: Aspects of the discussion are, amongst others, the collecting and exhibition of visual art at the interface between private and public presentation and reception as well as within the context of enjoyment. The event is intended to be accessible to a wide audience from the most different areas of art, science all the way to business (approximately 80 participants).

Artist Dinner in Tanglberg Restaurant and the Tanglberg Drawing Collection: During the European Capital of Culture year, artists and guests from throughout Austria and beyond will be invited to Vorchdorf. After viewing the exhibition in the drawing collection and the Tanglberg gallery, table conversations about art will take place with plenty of exchange in the Tanglberg restaurant with approximately 20 people. These artist dinners, which will take place four times, will be accompanied by artistic interventions, performances and talks about, for example, eat art, completely in the tradition of the gallery and the restaurant. The first artist dinners were already started in the year 2023.

As locations, the premises of the drawing collection in Schloss Hochhaus, the Tanglberg gallery and the guesthouse Schloss Hochhaus in Vorchdorf are available. The Renaissance building Schloss Hochhaus with its representative rooms has become the home for a significant collection of drawings. The quality of architecture as well as that of the art on paper strengthen each other complementarily.

Erich Spitzbart opened the Tanglberg gallery at the address Pettenbacherstraße 3 in Vorchdorf in 1984  a gallery for contemporary art. Today, the gallery’s schedule of programming includes different forms of visual art such as painting, conceptual art, sculpture, print graphics and drawings. Numerous exhibitions with works of the classical modern and contemporary art document an intensive exchange with artists. Drawing has formed the focus since the very beginning and has developed into a comprehensive collection.
