Art on the Campus: "Art Brut Center Gugging"

Neighbours of IST Austria: “museum gugging” and “galerie gugging”

As neighbour on the new campus of the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) can be found an absolute jewel of the Austrian cultural landscape, enjoying great international fame. On a hill above the central building and the newly-built lecture hall lies the “Art Brut Center Gugging”. Since 2006 works by artists from the former psychiatric hospital Gugging are presented, which since the 1970s belong to the most important representatives of Art Brut worldwide.

“galerie gugging” has loaned IST Austria 15 works for the duration of the opening festivities, for the rooms in the administrative building and offices, and this will demonstrate the close connection between the two institutions. In addition there are plans for cooperation in events such as, for example, the annual autumn cultural fair.
