Innsbruck is a popular tourist destination. The big attraction remains the mountains, but the city has a lot to offer: events of all kinds, a historic center that is absolutely worth visiting, places to enjoy the specialties of local and international cuisine, concerts, theater performances, and exhibitions. For those who, between a downtown tour and an ice cream, want to indulge in art, here is an overview of some of the exhibitions scheduled in Innsbruck in the coming months.

"FREE TIME" / DIE „FREIE ZEIT“ at the Kunstraum

The issue of "free time" will have to be renegotiated in the course of digital transformation. It is a time when we have the opportunity to move freely and meet the people we want. It is a time for emotions, for reconnection and dialogue. It is a time for reflection. It is a political time that can prepare for change.
But how is "free time" political? The women artists in the exhibition address these issues through their works.

„Was bleibt“ at the Stadtarchiv

The city of Innsbruck has a vast collection of artworks, some of which are located at the historical archive and some in municipal offices and storage facilities. For the first time, an exhibition offers the opportunity to view the rich collection of art owned by the city. The title „was bleibt“ - meaning "what remains" - refers to the red thread traceable in the collection and stimulates a reflection on the very reasons for collecting.

Was bleibt. Werke aus der Kunstsammlung der Stadt Innsbruck
Stadtarchiv, Badgasse 2, Innsbruck
hours: Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
full admission €4.20, reduced €2.90, free with Innsbruck Card

„The Secret Life of Plants and Trees“ at the Kunstpavillon

The final exhibition of Büchsenhausen's Fellowship-Programm in Art and Theory 2023-24 addresses the growing antagonisms and identity-political shifts in our present. The decolonial questioning of (post-)Soviet identity formation, queer cruising practices in repressive societies, and the (im)possibility of socio-political identity constructions as an Arab Jew in the Israeli-Palestinian context are central themes explored in the works in the exhibition, in dialogue with botanical "actors."

The Secret Life of Plants and Trees
Works by Agil Abdullayev, Tatiana Fiodorova-Lefter, Hori Izhaki. Curated by Andrei Siclodi
Kunstpavillon, Rennweg 8a, Innsbruck
hours: Wednesday through Friday 12 noon to 6 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., free admission

„Forest Komplex“ at the BTV Stadtforum Innsbruck

Artist Uta Kögelsberger deals with the effects of climate change on our forests. Her way of working is meticulous.

A photo exhibition that blends information and emotion.
