The "Stars & Guitars" exhibition features works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring, Steve Kaufman, Mel Ramos, Kiki Kogelnik and other well-known Pop Art artists as well as rare guitars from the Infeld collection.
Pop Art moved the striking visual world of advertising and the mass media into the aesthetic focus. From bizarre to critical, artists delivered an imaginative interpretation of commercial products. It was not about a direct adoption of what was found in everyday life: The subjects were overdrawn, distorted, fragmented, endlessly duplicated and boosted to the point of absurdity. A unique iconography and visual language was created: recognizable, reduced, expressive.

The Infeld House of Culture in Halbturn is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. More than 100 exhibitions by well-known national and international artists, more than 100 concerts took place during this time. Admission for visitors is free.

In the anniversary year there is an exhibition with artworks by the Viennese artist Kurt Kramer (1945-2008). Color, tone and word were existential basic terms for Kramer's life. It was filled equally with painting, drawing, music and writing.

The artist wrote: "The deep meaning of art is to silently awaken the gift in people to experience the story of their own feelings."

The Infeld Haus of Culture in Halbturn dedicates a personal exhibition to the artist Josef Bramer. He is regarded as a poetic loner in the Austrian art scene.

Josef Bramer paints in old master technique with meticulous accuracy without any loud pathos. As a graduate of Rudolf Hausner's master class at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, he was given a precise description of the object and richly nuanced colors. Josef Bramer creates his silent but urgent messages with reliable skill and confident knowledge without submitting to fashion.

His paintings seems like an inner monologue. Quiet, self-contained, Josef Bramer fully fills his formats with tremendous perseverance.

Infeld Haus der Kultur in Halbturn shows a personal exhibition of the Austrian artist Florentina Pakosta. She devoted herself to art against every external resistance. At the beginning of her work reacted Pakosta in her drawings to the discrimination against women in the Austrian society in general and in the art scene concrete.

In the 1990s turned Florentina Pakosta gradually away from black-and-white, figurative work in favor of an abstract visual language. Until today, she creates series of characteristic tricolor paintings, which emerge from the experienced emotion.

The Infeld House of Culture in Halbturn pays tribute to Tone Fink on his 75th birthday and exhibits works from the protagonist from the 1970s to 2018.

Energetic, imaginative and versatile, he is a pictorial lateral thinker. For Tone Fink, the boundaries between art genres exist in order to be skipped, because he needs variety and is a draftsman, painter, object artist, actionist and performer, filmmaker and art teacher.

The Infeld House of Culture in Halbturn honors Walter Schmögner on his 75th birthday.

As the son of the painter Theobald Schmögner, Walter Schmögner came into contact with art at an early age. His talent already was evident at school. After completing his master class, he exhibited his quirky pen and ink drawings in Vienna for the first time. Since then he has been exploring the astonishing, the strange and the quirky with meticulous attention to detail. His work was and remains astonishingly diverse and wide-ranging.
