On Friday I participated in a guided tour for instagramers at the Künstlerhaus. The building was erected in 1868 as an event site and exhibition house for Austria's oldest (independant and private) artist association, "The Association of Austrian Artists Künstlerhaus". The association with nearly 500 member artists comprises a variety of fields such as painting, sculpting, architecture, applied arts and film, and sees itself as a platform for artists and art lovers. As of July 1st, the Künstlerhaus will be closed for renovation for a period of two years.
