Town Museum Kitzbuehel
The "home" of the local museum, the former granary, is one of the most historically valuable buildings in the city. It was first mentioned the 16th Century and it was used in the early 18th Century as a granary adapted to supply the urban population.
From this period the construction still exists today - heavy, ceiling beams supported by pillars in the middle of the room. The attic has as an open roof with a type of spindle winch which is rarely seen in this form in Tyrol. It was used for transporting heavy loads.
In 2007 the Museum was awarded The Austrian Museum’s top Seal of Approval!
Special Exibition „Egger-Lienz/Walde/Berg"
After training and longer stays in the art capitals Vienna, Munich and Weimar the three painters who developed their work with landscapes and the people living in it in the artistic peripheral rural regions. Berg with his scenes from his remote “Rutarhof” in south east Kärntens, Egger-Lienz from Langenfeld and after his return from Weimar in 1914 in St. Justina in Bolzano and Alfons Walde in Kitzbuehel in the 1920s and '30s.
The "Verwachsensein" with the region is expressed in spite of different topics in a "poetry of the local" and resonates with the new art. The province, its landscape and its people is the universal subject of the work. It is the art of Albin Egger-Lienz, Alfons Walde and Werner Berg beyond an unthinking and uncritical folk art where all three artists widened their conceptions more than any provincial images of Austrian art of the first half of the 20th Century, to become classics.
The joint exhibition projects content and form of the work of Albin Egger-Lienz, Alfons Walde and Werner Berg, showing the special collection of three museums simultaneously. In Bleiburg is portrayed the type of rural people, in Kitzbühel the issues of Skiing and landscape and in Lienz religion and portrayal of war.
