The Salzkammergut was a melting pot of the avant-garde in the 19th and 20th centuries. The performance and exhibition of the "Ballet Mécanique" tie in with this tradition and at the same time offer a Salzkammergut version of the visionary masterpiece of classical modernism.

Introduction and workshop concert „Ensemble Mécanique“ with Winfried Ritsch

In 2019, visual artist Peter Kogler and curator Katrin Bucher-Trantow initiated a reinterpretation of the legendary Ballet Mécanique by American composer George Antheil for Kogler’s exhibition “Connected” at Kunsthaus Graz. The Graz composer Winfried Ritsch subsequently realised this music machine.
