About the Wirtshauslabor Salzkammergut 2024 project
The Capital of Culture provides an impetus to revitalise the disappearing pub culture in the countryside. With representatives from local and European top gastronomy as well as art and culture, themed regulars’ tables will be initiated, pubs will be revitalised and pub labs with tourism schools will be convened. In addition, the artistic-performative cooking collective Healthy Boy Band (Lukas Mraz, Philip Rachinger, Felix Schellhorn) developed the “HOT BOX BUILDING” especially for the Capital of Culture in cooperation with friendship. is, the “HOT BOX BUILDING”, a mobile installation that works in the form of culinary interventions and performances at various locations and activates them for a certain period of time: in the town centre next to abandoned inns, by the lake in front of the picturesque mountain panorama, in the field directly next to the producers or in the abandoned industrial hall as an ambassador for the cause.
