Stift Millstatt Kärnten / Carinthia / Koroska

Stift Millstatt is an old monastery that was built around 1070 and served as a spiritual and cultural center of the upper Carinthian region in the Carinthian mountains of Austria. Due to the special position close to Slovenja and Italy, Stift Millstatt always represented an open minded attitude towards the world.



ART SPACE         

ART SPACE stift  millstatt is a 400qm big

multifunctional space for contemporary Art  presenting a full year programme including Gallery, Dance and Film activity throughout the year. 

The ART SPACE hosts the büro für tanz I theater I produktionen, the international active collective of artists

NETZWERK AKS, the Gallery FORUM KUNST contemporary and the NGO Forum Kunst.





The büro für tanz I theater I produktionen

constitutes a permanent base in the Carinthian mountains which allows to move anywhere in the world flexible in order to start producing on the spot where production activity is needed. The office mainly serves as the organizational backbone for the free-floating platform NETZWERK AKS, for the international edition of LIGHT ON – LIGHT OFF and other smaller formats and guest performances in contemporary dance.It elaborates international work and focuses more and more on collaborations with national and  international artists and institutions throughout Europe and Asia. With the aim  to challenge and to explore tendencies and trends in contemporary dance, fine arts, new media and installation, the büro für tanz I theater I produktionen has taken it upon itself to newly arrange the current cultural map of Carinthia within the  context of an open minded European Society.





It is our philosophy to create a portable, open space for individual work approaches, for the initiation of professional-level artistic concepts by NETZWERK AKS and outside artists and to contribute to the realization of these projects throug infrastructural, dramaturgical and technical support.
