Photosynthesis – dialogue-based guided tours

For each exhibition, we invite people to take others on a tour through the exhibition and offer their interesting outsider's perspectives. This time around, we have invited three experts whose professions allow them to offer unique viewpoints on the city:

  • Dialogue-based guided tour with architecture expert Arno Ritter
    Wednesday, 24 October 2018, 6 to 7 pm

    Arno Ritter is the Director of aut. architektur und tirol architecture centre. He sees the city as a constructed space full of architectural qualities, challenges and potential for spatial development.


  • Dialogue-based guided tour with author Christoph W. Bauer
    Wednesday, 28 November 2018, 6 to 7 pm

    Christoph W. Bauer has addressed Innsbruck in several of his works in the past few years. In his book titled Alphabet of Houses, he wanders through the ups and downs of the city's history in the form of a Socratic dialogue.


  • Dialogue-based guided tour with ethnologist Silke Meyer
    Wednesday, 23 January 2019, 6 to 7 pm

    The university professor has at least two interesting perspectives to offer on the city: first, she was not born in Tyrol, but has been living in Innsbruck for nearly 10 years. Second, she is an expert in researching the culture of different peoples and ethnic groups, and specialises in identity, imagery and photography.
