TRANSFORM-ARTE is an art fair of a special kind. The background idea and motto is to transform through art. The artists are the center of attention. Every event has a main theme. The intention is to bring together artistic diversity and support artistic freedom.
Established as an initiative of ART HOUSE PROJECT in 2017, our aim since is to present visual and performing artists, as well as writers and musicians from home and abroad, to open up the art scene in Burgenland and to support collaborations between artists.
The main theme for TRANSFORM-ARTE 2021 is „100 Years of Burgenland“.
The event location is the former Paedagogische Akademie Eisenstadt, a massive building constructed in the mid 60’s.
It was a place to train prospective teachers for over 40 years, until it was given up in 2008 and abandoned for almost a decade. Since 2017 however, TRANSFORM-ARTE brought it back to life.
Located in the hills behind the Esterhazy Palace and the city park, the building and the surrounding area are an ideal playground for creativity in the heart of nature.
