#notesfromthefield Quick dose of inspiration from all over the world: NOW…#spamuseum The @arnulfrainermuseum is a museum with temporary exhibitions in the Lower Austrian municipality of Baden (near Vienna). It is located in the former so-called Frauenbad (women spa), which was built in 1821 in the style of French classicism. In 1973 the spa was closed down and the building was used as a supra-regional exhibition centre. In 2006, the municipality of Baden decided to convert the exhibition centre into a museum and dedicate it to the contemporary Austrian painter Arnulf Rainer, who was born in Baden. #vienna #arnulfrainer
#notesfromthefield Quick dose of inspiration from all over the world: ABOUT…#coffeehouseculture Our approach to the city and the art it produces starts in the coffee house and ends there. Here you can experience the other temporality of the city and discover interesting thinkers from past days, as well as observe the current everyday life. It is a social meeting place and an integral part of society. The Viennese coffee house culture is a social practice and was accepted by UNESCO as an immaterial cultural heritage. The Club of Viennese Coffee House Owners was founded in 1956 as a merger of traditional and innovative Viennese coffee houses. One of its most important tasks is the promotion of cultural projects in the coffee houses. And by the way, almost all of them offer an international range of daily newspapers. #vienna

Notes from the field: A quick dose of inspiration from all over the world. NOW:.......#happenings The photography festival @rencontresarles Les Rencontres d'Arles, which was founded in 1969 and inaugurated in 1970, continues to develop with flare and pushes at the boundaries of contemporaneity with a wide range of inspiring exhibitions and events. It will open first week of July. Alongside exciting photography shows, this event sees a coming together of editors and agents. For active participants of the photography scene, this is an opportunity to keep up with shifting trends, and for those who are not specialists, it represents a wonderful bubble into which you can dip, beyond daily life routines. #notesfromthefield #arles Image: @viola_winifred
#notesfromthefield A quick inspiration from all over the world. ABOUT:........#visualcommunication Our approach to the region of #provence is – “people are visual communicators” – which takes its inspiration from the 32,000 year old Chauvet cave paintings of Provence located near Arles. This specific approach enables a discussion of early image production, with a consideration of how this continues to resonate with modern and contemporary art practices including new media and photography. Delve into the area of Provence through images that have been produced by different communities throughout time. The city of Arles, located in the south of France, is famous within the sphere of the art world. Why so? Firstly, because Vincent van Gogh lived here for fifteen months between 1888 and 1889. Enthralled by the specificity of the natural light of the Provence area, he entered into a period of productive frenzy — described by historian Ronald Pickvance as the “zenith” of his artistic activity — and created dozens of paintings and hundreds of drawings. Secondly, because of the annual Recontres d' Arles @rencontresarles — a major photography festival inaugurated in 1970 — which makes the small post-industrial town an absolute must for anyone who has an interest in the medium of photography. We also find here in the region of Provence the origins of film and moving image in the city of La Ciotat, where the Lumiére brothers shot early movies.

Notes from the field: A quick dose of inspiration from all over the world ABOUT…… #perspectives Staring out at the atlantic ocean Portugal is enveloped by the sense of distance to the next closest landmass. Sharing a border with only one other of its European neighbors, it is almost as if the country itself has its attention facing away from Europe - waving out towards Africa and America...Does this have an effect on the cultural production in Portugal? #portugal #notesfromthefield
