All innovations start at the fringes
New works are created when boundaries are broken, when different abilities interact and intertwine, when people have the chance to try things and make mistakes. New creations often come into being in places away from established centres, which tend to uphold existing views and formulas.
For the photography programme, we are inviting a select group of artists to give their take on our home. As part of the music programme, we will be commissioning musicians from Tyrol and Vorarlberg to compose concert pieces for the Stadtforum that resonate with the photographic works on an artistic level.
Innsbruck meets Leipzig: An exchange between schools and art forms
After making the decision to invite an internationally renowned art school to take part in the first exhibition in the series, it was clear who the school's regional counterpart would be. The class led by Franz Bauer at Tiroler Landeskonservatorium (TLK) is the training centre for composition in Tyrol.
The composers were instructed to compose a piece of chamber music approximately seven minutes in length for two to three instruments. Folkert Uhde, a dramatic adviser for concerts who hails from Germany, will be responsible for designing the concert experiences featuring these five new works. Uhde is a pioneer of new concert formats (Radialsystem arts centre, Berlin; Montforter Zwischentöne, Feldkirch) and developed the production for the evening in collaboration with the composers from Tyrol.
