Alice Creischer and Andreas Siekmann, Ines Doujak, Judy Fox, Gülsün Karamustafa, Dan and Lia Perjovschi, Dierk Schmidt, Zhao Liang – these are only a few of the internationally distinguished artists who will be directing a total of 25 workshops and courses lasting between two and six weeks at the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts. The three locations – the mediaeval Hohensalzburg Fortress, the Alte Saline [old salt factory] in Hallein and a romantic stone quarry on the Untersberg – offer an ideal atmosphere for inspiration and artistic productivity, in the oldest institution of its kind, founded in 1953 by Oskar Kokoschka. The Summer Academy provides an opportunity for young talents, art students, professional artists, teachers and ambitious amateurs to work creatively in modern idioms. The image is open and international: every year, the Academy welcomes some 400 participants of every age and over 40 nationalities. 

The teaching programme offers the opportunity of exploring individual and subjective, as well as socio-political themes. Traditional and experimental techniques are taught at the highest level, contemporary practices and discourses being a priority. 

Classes include painting, drawing, graphic arts, sculpture, installation, architecture, design, jewellery, stone sculpture, photography and media art, film and video.

Throughout the six weeks, the Summer Academy provides an ambitious and comprehensive accompanying programme of artists' presentation, discussions, vernissages and exhibitions.
