New encounters with photography and music: A short guided tour at noon to get started? Or a mini concert for three pictures in the exhibition? In our dialogue guided tours, personalities from science, culture or business choose their favorite pictures and talk about them. And if you want to know exactly, you can meet the artists in our public discussions about their life, work and their personal perception of the region. The INN SITU education program offers simple approaches, extraordinary perspectives and deepening in a small group. Admission to all events is free.

Film and guided tour of the exhibition by the artist

For the finale of this INN SITU spotlight: A documentary about the Pitztal photo pioneer Anna Katharina Lentsch. Prior to this, an exchange with Roos van Haaften at the exhibition (guided tour in English, film and discussion in German).

Film documentary: Dichtel’s Drina – a search for traces

A spectacular women’s story: The picture postcard company Risch-Lau, whose images Roos van Haaften explores in the exhibition, has its roots in the Tyrolean Pitztal valley. Leaving the village of Wenns behind, a certain Anna Katharina Lentsch set off in the middle of the 19th century and opened a successful photo studio in Sigmaringen (Baden-Württemberg) a few years later. With her help, her daughter Ida then laid the foundation of the Risch-Lau company in Bregenz, which was to shape the image of the region in a very special way for over 100 years. Anna Katharina’s great-great-grandson Markus Barnay set out in search of any traces of this extraordinary Tyrolean entrepreneur. He will be available for a discussion afterwards.
