New formats of exchange and reflection

A dialogue will round off the triad of dramatic composition for INN SITU. We will invite people from the spheres of science/research, everyday culture and music to respond to the outsider perspectives presented in the exhibition. The aim of this is to experiment with new ways to exchange viewpoints.

We started with a dialogue-based jam session between three different perspectives on the theme of 'city': ethnology, architecture and urban histories. The three speakers Silke Meyer, Christoph W. Bauer and Arno Ritter will each select an image from the exhibition and explain how they perceive the city today. They were musically accompanied by Juliana Haider and Siggi Haider.

She was also presented the Ars Docendi State Prize for her teachings in 2013.

Author Christoph W. Bauer has delved deep into the city of Innsbruck in a series of publications, including in the books The Second Outsider [Die zweite Fremde] and In the Alphabet of Houses – a novel about a city [Im Alphabet der Häuser, Roman einer Stadt], both of which were published by Haymon Verlag. He was awarded the Tyrol Regional Prize for Art in 2015.

Arno Ritter is the director and programmer for the exhibition space "aut.architektur und tirol" in Innsbruck. He is a recognised expert in urban development issues. During the preliminary stage of the project, he took the exhibition artists on a tour of the city and shed light on its architectural history and future issues.
