In a collaborative exhibition organised by the Hofburg Brixen, the Augustinermuseum Rattenberg and the Museum Rablhaus Weerberg, visitors are sent on a pilgrimage to trace the forms of religious mobility.

In the Diocesan Museum of Bressanone, the main focus is on the local veneration of saints, with a particular focus on "exotic saints" whose veneration is less widespread in Tyrol. The pilgrimage routes of selected saints are based on a graphic map and illustrated with works of art dating from the Middle Ages to the present day.

Peppi Tischler became well-known throughout South Tyrol with his caricatures for the daily newspapers "Dolomiten" and "Neue Südtiroler Tageszeitung". 

In keeping with the Lenten season, Peppi Tischler's 14 Stations of the Cross, which were already exhibited in 1992 in the cloister of the former Carthusian monastery in Certosa di Senales, are presented in the Hofburg Bressanone.

Tischler designed the Passion of Jesus  on solid larch wood boards. 

The stations are characterised by a dialogue between the protagonists, who are depicted in reduced form, through their expressions and gestures. The viewers of the Stations of the Cross are included in this dialogue simply through the clear sign language and thus become part of the event, which is transported into the here and now.

JOSEF KOSTNER (1933-2017)



9 April 2022 - 6 November 2022

Josef Kostner's explosive works, characterised by rebellion and resignation, are more topical today than ever. In a stirring time, marked by uncertainty and perplexity, his sculptures and drawings convey confidence and give hope: hope of making a difference in society and overcoming crises; hope of breaking free from outdated conventions and daring to try something new; hope for a carefree, happy life. The timeless and honest works of Josef Kostner not only tell the intimate story of a man whose lifeblood was art, but are also a mirror of our society, provoking reflection and pointing to the true values of human existence.

The exhibition Josef Kostner (1933-2017). Between Rebellion and Resignation illustrates graphic and sculptural works that show a representative cross-section of Kostner's oeuvre.
