    The first sculptors' symposion was held in 1967 and since this date of founding until now, every year a symposion has taken place in Krastal marble quarry. Symposion [kunstwerk] krastal is so far the most ancient existing event of this kind and together with Carinthian Summer Music Festival one of the most long lasting artistic event in Carinthia.

    In the frame of the 53rd symposion, [kunstwerk] krastal invite artists to explore the question of the public space. In collaboration with philosophers, architects, theoreticians, experts of different domains, the artists will investigate the use of public space, the forms, the place and the function of artistic and non-artistic expression in it. The artworks as result of this interdisciplinary collaboration will be created for a specific environment; Stift Ossiach and its surroundings.


    Instead of creating singular sculpture-objects the artists will analyze, consider and interact with the environment. The aim of these artistic interventions is to create new assets to a milieu, to make the emergence of a new context, a revisited place, where the artwork does not distinguish from its environment by separation but by its impact on the elements of its environment. The artworks are the resonance of the space as well as the source of the resonance it self and they may be considered as proposals for better understanding of our environment.
