long night of museums 2012
today was again the lange nacht der museen, & again I used the opportunity to visit some sites in innsbruck:
  1. galerie im taxispalais – galerie des landes tirol: contemporary austrian paintings, some nice, & a good guided tour
  2. kunstraum innsbruck: the secret diary of an affair ~1970 in texts & photos, weird but impressive
  3. fo.ku.s foto kunst stadtforum: a few boring photos
  4. fotoforum west: some photos ..., & I didn't see a trace of the announced guided tour
  5. stadtarchiv/stadtmuseum: documentary movies about innsbruck (1934-1976), not a single one without sch├╝tzen & blasmusik no matter if during the austro fascist era, national socialism, or the second republic
  6. tiroler landesmuseum/ferdinandeum: not so impressive paintings & a nice reading of a local novelist, & free drinks on the balcony
