The fact that you can get art from a vending machine just like chewing gum, snacks or drinks is no longer something entirely new. However, the inventor of the art vending machine, Helene Huemer, fills it with sculptures, medals, scrolls and drawings as well as comics in the style of Bruckner. The machine is now going on tour through Upper Austria and demands to be filled again and again by creative people. There is a hands-on table for both the young and old where YOU can give your creativity free rein. Get in on the art: model, stamp, draw, write poetry and let us teleport Anton Bruckner, the organ rock star, into the here and now. Insert a 2 euro coin, spin it and plop! You will be rewarded with a surprise such as an original work of art from regional & international artists or from one of the participants.

This event takes place in the context of Frühshoppen, as in Bruckner's time.

The entrance to the house has a step approx. 15 cm high.

This device combines organ playing and an ensemble of adapted  playground equipment in a move to create a collective musical instrument in a public space. Different organ pipes are operated by swinging them and bobbing them up and down - this creates an acoustic space in the organ playground that makes Anton Bruckner audible and tangible in both an abstract and playful way.
The SCHORGEL will be set up in various Bruckner-related locations in 2024.

The SCHORGEL is coming to Wolfern!
The organ playground can be experienced as part of: Frühschoppen - Like in Bruckner's time in Wolfern

Accessible for those with impaired mobility!

In his childhood, Anton Bruckner stayed numerous times with his godmother and great-aunt, Rosalia Mayrhofer, in Wolfern, where his parents also met.

To pay tribute to Anton Bruckner, we take you on a journey back to the Upper Austrian composer's early youth. It is said that Anton Bruckner supplemented his income as a young musician by playing the violin.

The market town of Wolfern and the cultural association would like to invite you to share a morning pint with violinists who enjoy playing for a warm meal. The "Wegerer Schrammel" will provide musical entertainment and pepper the event with short stories about Anton Bruckner. A special highlight of the morning pint will be the "Schorgel", a unique combination of musical instruments and an organ, which will be touring the whole of Upper Austria this year.

Admission free!
