Finissage
Saturday, October 28, 3 pm - 6 pm

The later October, the shorter the thread...

We warmly invite you to taste the olive oil from Daniel Spoerri's Giardino that has just arrived for our museum shop and to reflect on the past season with a glass of wine.

Take advantage of the opportunity to dive once more or first time into an exhibition universe of sewn plants, embroidered interiors, carpet pictures, crocheted dishes, sewn writing, and clothing with a history.

Join us for fine jazz from Markus Eckl (bass trombone) and Roland Lensch (piano). Andreas Hafner will once again treat us to one of his delicious soups. 

Summer Picnic Party
August 26, starting 3 pM

Textiles have been part of food culture since ancient times. According to a study by the University of Hohenheim on the subject of gastro-physics, a good meal always includes a piece of fabric. People not only prefer to eat at dining areas covered with cloth, but also sit longer.

With that in mind, bring blankets, towels, fine table linen, embroidered, woven, or printed items, and anything else you can think of for a picnic.

Also, everyone can chose or bring a piece of fabric, which will then grow stitch by stitch into a large patchwork textile created together.

Patterns have always fascinated people. We are looking forward to seeing sounds as patterns and shapes this afternoon. Rita Newman and the ivibe.life-Team are putting up a photo-audio-station in the orangery of Ausstellungshaus where visitors can interactively visualise their own voice. 

Drinks and summery snacks are provided, musically, the two young musicians Jonas & Oskar will accompany us through the afternoon with Jazz.

Museums - sustainably inspiring

Guided tour through the exhibition »A golden thread«

Yoga at the Museum
Our experiences during the pandemic have shown how essential for most people the interaction of body, space and objects is to the experience of art. Art is not only a mental, but also a physical and spatial experience. As soon as you enter the museum space, you enter a new context of meaning.
Yoga also frees us from familiar everyday contexts and brings our physical perception and our inner world to the fore. A balanced yoga unit can open up a different focus for the visit to the exhibition - and vice versa.
Duration: 1 hour. Suitable for all levels, no previous knowledge necessary! Please bring your own mat AND a blanket or bath towel.

Forged jokes
A conversation between Michael Freund and Roz Chast and a guided tour by
Tex Rubinowitz
As a draftsman and cartoonist, Tex Rubinowitz has been an avid reader of Roz Chast's cartoons and comics for many years and designed the lettering for their German-language editions. He met Daniel Spoerri in the Chinese restaurant in Vienna.
There is something that connects the three artists - at this year's exhibition this becomes clear in the shared love of textile art and the shared sense of humour.

VERNISSAGES / PICNICS / FINISSAGES

We love having guests! 

Our visitors know the great atmosphere of our wonderful inner courtyard - and how cozy it can be to enjoy this with a (not empty!) glass in one hand and a sandwich with herbs in the other. 

Be it on the occasion of our opening of the main exhibition a week before Easter, be it at vernissages in the course of extensions or changes to the exhibition - or just to have a cozy picnic. 

For musical accompaniment the »travel orchestra« has become a kind of fixed star in this respect. What we unfortunately have less control over is the weather. But if it plays along, we like to push our intended curfew a little further into the evening or night.

Banquets

As part of Eat Art, Daniel Spoerri has developed a series of banquets that take the traditional form of a seated dinner as a framework and follow various artistic concepts. 

The use of the random principle, the element of surprise or strictly composed concept meals await the visitors. The aim is to explore eating habits and to question them artistically. The main focus is less on the culinary side and more on Daniel Spoerri's ideas. 

After a first »field test« in 2019 (a 13-course »beef tripe menu« celebrated by Roman Steger), we hosted four banquets and a picnic during the 2020 season. 

It was almost a matter of course that the »Palindromic Banquet« was at the exact peak of the season, after all, at this banquet you eat the menu - at least as far as the visual side is concerned - in reverse, i.e. in mirrored order.

When, while planning the banquets, Daniel Spoerri said that one could, no, one had to use these banquets for a series of snare pictures, we were of course enthusiastic. 

For each of the banquets that were realized, a table was selected towards the end of the menu sequence, which was »fixed« by Susanne Neumann in the following days and thus became a »snare picture« . 

The four snare pictures from the banquets were joined by two more, in which the trap spontaneously snapped shut during a picnic in the museum's courtyard and garden - which means that the »Hadersdorf« series now comprises six works. 

On this occasion, we would like to thank all those visitors who sat at one of the snare picture tables (or on one of the picnic blankets) for their participation, and in particular for even bringing personal items »into the trap«. 

Concerts / Performances / Readings

The wonderful hall in the »second house« is predestined for musical events. Whether swing, whether baroque music or a »journey« with the traveling orchestra - we don't plan according to genres, but simply present good music in a first-class interpretation in a casual setting. 

We also try to do justice to the theater frame of the room - be it with extremely atmospheric stories in the form of a »flip-book« or the filigree short presentations of minimalist paper theatre. 

Readings and book presentations complete the additional program during an exhibition season, which we self-critically describe as still too sporadic and vow to get better...

Workshops / Open House

Cooking courses, strudel-making workshop, supper congress - we want to encourage our visitors to participate. 

With the workshops aimed at schoolchildren, in which the focus is on actively participating in the creation of art, we strive to spark in the next generation the curiosity to discover, arouse enthusiasm for museums, or perhaps even give the impetus for their own artistic activity.
