Kunstresidenz in BadGastein (c) Schwarzrosagold 2011

The newly establish art festival sommer.frische.kunst tries to connect to Bad Gastein’s past as a glamourous summer destination. The “kunstresidenz” provides seven international artists an opportunity to create new work while living at the “Kunstresidenz”, the “kunstfestival shining” presents contemporary art, and the music festival summer jazz in the city brings the sounds of jazz to Bad Gastein.

Artist Phillip Fürhofer, known for his light boxes and set design was inspired to create two exceptional pieces that deal with kitsch and kik.
