The mountain as political landscape is the focus of this excursion conceived together with artist Anna Hofbauer and author (and former geologist) Thomas Raab. Intuitive impressions, especially of the mass and force dimensions in nature, will be combined with geological, hydro- and ecological knowledge. In addition to the Kölnbreinsperre, Austria's highest dam wall, we will also visit, among other things the Semmering-Basistunnel construction site.

Examination Modalities

Active participation and per student one lecture on a specific topic during the trip.


Exclusively for students of the department Sculpture and Space.
