  • Guided by Artists - Wiener Festwochen

    As part of the Guided by Artists programme, artists of the Wiener Festwochen invite visitors to join them in very personal guided tours. These artistic field trips will lead to the Paintings Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, to the archives of the Musikverein as well as the city’s bell towers. The tours offer a unique insight into an artistic – and this year thoroughly musical – universe and the opportunity to (re)discover the city and its collections.

    Conductor and choirmaster Geoffroy Jourdain, whose production t u m u l u s can be seen at this year’s Wiener Festwochen, is extending an invitation to enjoy a highly sensory experience at the Academy of Fine Arts. With the Picture Gallery plunged in darkness late in the evening, sounds resonate throughout its space. The artist establishes musical references to selected works and directs the viewer’s gaze specifically at individual details of the artworks, literally casting them in a new light.
