“then do not forget, art is not a goal, but a path“ – these words, by the austrian poet rainer maria rilke, characterise in a most distinctive way a fundamental fascination of art: it is probably one of the most exciting human “experiential paths“ of expression, but is never attainable in the sense of a finalized goal. this fascinating path of art offers many possibilities, one of the most inspiring of which is certainly to set out together with other people and to be stimulated by various art forms, transform impulses into form, and swap ideas with others, in particular with artists who have years of experience with this artistic path.

when an exceptional local atmosphere such as the convent, and its surroundings are added to the latter, the stimulation is even greater.
the summer academy in traunkirchen offers all of these possibilities.


we invite you to partake on this path of art with us."
