The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

One of the most unusual art collectors in Austria lives in Reichenau an der Rax: Alfred Flackl. And only very few know him. Over several decades, he has decorated his Hotel Flackl-Wirt with hundreds of artworks. “The horrific and the excellent” can be found here. Oil paintings of cats, obscure, expensive, and less expensive works. Flackl’s understanding of art seems boundless. Thomas Zuber visited him for his graduation project.
