Guided Tours & Workshops 


Currently the exhibition “Hermann Nitsch – The 6-Day Play“ is displayed at nitsch museum. This exhibition, which is organised in cooperation with the Albertina Wien, focus for the first time since the artist’s death on the centrepiece of the artist’s Gesamtkunstwerk or total work of art.

Hermann Nitsch was one of the founders of Viennese Actionism and one of the most prominent representatives of this art movement. His Opus magnum, the Orgies Mysteries Theatre, is a new form of Gesamtkunstwerk. The artist revolutionised the twentieth century’s concept of theatre with this completely new theatre construct. The 6-Day Play is the centrepiece of Hermann Nitsch’s total art work, the Orgies Mysteries Theatre.

Age-appropriate guided tours for school classes are held by qualified art mediators, taking the form of lively debate.

Pouring. Art with all senses

Does a picture always have to be painted with a brush? No! With his Schüttbilder (poured pictures), Hermann Nitsch freed his art from the function of depiction. This profound experience of practising art and stimulating all the senses was aimed at the artist's liberation and joie de vivre. After a visit to the exhibition, people themselves pick up the bucket of paint to create a poured picture.

Hearing colours - Paint sounds

The stimulation of the five senses is an important part of Nitsch's creation. Particular attention is paid to synaesthetic perception, the interaction of several senses, that only make it possible to enable the full experience of his total work of art. The Wagner admirer Nitsch let the music of the Valkyrie become colours, and colours and sounds became one. During the workshop, Wagner's music will be implemented in painting.

Duration: 90 minutes / workshop
Costs: € 9,00 per pupil (incl. admission)
