ADMONT GUESTS - ARTIST'S BOOKS

The 2014 ADMONT GUESTS exhibition will put on display major examples of books created by contemporary international artists held in private and public collections. This distinctive genre of art is particularly multi-faceted, rich in expressive forms derived from a range of different artistic traditions and stimulates the senses. The various individual exhibits will transport the viewer into magical realms of perception. The exhibition will present a broad cross-section of examples of this form of art.


COLOURFUL CREATURES

The museum's special exhibition this year will demonstrate the amazing variety of colourful vintage tinplate toys, a feast for anyone with fond memories of playing with these, children and those who have remained young in heart. The vast range of clock work animals of the past, carefully and lovingly displayed, will fascinate with their glorious colours and extraordinary diversity. The exhibition will be enhanced by photo images and short video films created by the Berlin-based artists Sebastian Köpke and Volker Weinhold.


ROOM FOR ARTISTIC INTERVENTION

The 'Room for Artistic Intervention' in Admont's Museum of Fine Art has currently been designed by Emil Siemeister under the title 'The Placebo Macclesfield Psalter'. The starting material for his series of transformations was the 14th century manuscript known as the Macclesfield Psalter in Cambridge's Fitzwilliam Museum. The blacklighting of the frieze montage in the room provides for an exhilarating dream-like experience while fully alert.
