Art project

Art in the old town

14th July - 15th September 2023

Markus Moling is an artist from Wengen and now living in Mühlen in Taufers, whose main theme is nature as an intact habitat of man. His works are an expression of lived experiences; they depict nature not as an image of reality, but as a rendering of an emotional world that allows for much interpretation. Over the years, Moling has perfected his technique: He works with different layers of painting and experiments with beeswax, acrylic, ink and pencil.

For the project Art in the old town the Museum Advisory Board of Klausen in cooperation with the Kompatscher Gallery from Brixen was able to win the artist for a collaboration. The artworks of Markus Moling will be displayed the store windows of the old town from July 14 to September 15, 2023, with the aim of arousing the interest of the local people and tourists. In addition, light boxes showing works by the artist will be set up on at five locations in the city.

All 19 artworks - on display in selected stores and on the light boxes - are based on the theme of sustainability, which this year is the annual theme of the three special exhibitions of the City Museum.
The project aims to encourage people to discuss and exchange about art in public spaces.
The exhibition is accompanied by a varied program for adults and children. On July 14, the project will be inaugurated at 7 p.m. in the Walthersaal. For children, an experimental workshop will take place on September 1 at 9 a.m. in the cloister of the former Capuchin monastery. Guided city visits will also highlight the artworks in public spaces. In the stores, customers are invited to write their own thought in reference to a painting of their choice. These contributions can be handed in at the stores, the Tourist Office and the City Museum until September 9. In mid-September, the children's most original paintings as well as the written contributions will be awarded.

The Office of Museums and Museum Research, the Municipality of Chiusa and the Tourist Association Klausen, Barbian, Feldthurns, Villanders generously support the initiative "Art in the old town".
