The Museum der Moderne Salzburg proudly presents a grand retrospective surveying the work of Walter Pichler spanning five decades. Crossing the boundaries between architecture, design, and sculpture, Pichler was one of the most idiosyncratic artists of his time. From his early architectural visions across the series of Prototypes to his recently realized building projects, the exhibition shines a spotlight on an oeuvre that continues to inspire artists working today. The presentation includes a wealth of previously unpublished material.

30 Years of Friendship

On Friday, June 27, 2016, the Society of Friends of the Museum der Moderne Salzburg around President Heideswinth Kurz and the other members of the board marked the association’s thirtieth anniversary with a summer party on the Mönchsberg. Around two hundred prominent figures in Salzburg’s cultural life, including Governor Wilfried Haslauer, came to celebrate.
