Like many of his artistic contemporaries, Arnold Schönberg sought out summer retreats far from urban distractions in order to give free rein to his creativity during extended stays in the country.

The exhibition traces Schönberg’s creative years at Lake Traunsee, sketches a panorama of significant modernist artistic encounters and, away from the idyll, addresses the summer resort anti-Semitism of the early 1920s in the Salzkammergut.

Concert: Idyll for the modern age in Traunkirchen (ticket required)
