It is impossible to get away from culture in everyday situations as we constantly part of it. That’s exactly why it can be difficult to consciously notice cultural achievements.
The definition of culture includes more than just visible things as its scope is as wide as human nature itself. Cultural norms and values help people to master daily life.
Even though hardly anyone realises that they contribute a bit to cultural life every morning with a cup of coffee, it is an indisputable fact. Because not all people attach so much importance to a morning breakfast with coffee, in other countries more importance is attached to other meals of the day. Daran sehen wir, wie sich Kultur unterscheiden kann.
The Steinerbauer house, 400 years old at its core, was standing idle for several years and left to decay. Kaprun purchased the object und put it under monument conservation. The site on the Kirchbichl has a particular aura as there are several other historic buildings around the church.
The former Heimatmuseum Kaprun, now known as kaprunmuseum, found an attractive 140-m²-home on the first and second floor.
An artist that awakens with mysticism and confusion
Critics describe his works as contradictory, calling doubts and rousing. There’s something mystical about the complex art of the Kaprun native. He seems to have spun special worlds made of letter codes, muddled numbers and hidden secrets around himself. In fact, criticism, warnings and a strong jolting is what the Klagenfurt-born artist frequently likes to produce with his art.
A large heap of rubble made of “number stones” on the ORF site is his furious answer to the fact that works by the artist Thorak can be found in Salzburg. Thorak was strongly promoted by Hitler during the Nazi era. Thuswaldner’s art is all about freedom, reality, time, tranquillity.
Topics that carry a lot of meaning for our society – then and now. They are aesthetic but never kitschy, the sculptures on poles, the pictures, the statues. Standing in the scenery and in green meadows partially nestling themselves into them as if they had always been there.
