For our third season of talks, Séamus Kealy has invited a variety of exciting speakers, with a couple of familiar faces too.

For the first talk, the artist Megan Rooney will be interviewed about her exhibitions in the Ring Gallery and Main Gallery by writer Emily LaBarge on the occasion of her exhibition opening at the Salzburger Kunstverein. The second talk consists of Austrian artist Gernot Wieland returning to present his new publication (produced in co-production with the Salzburger Kunstverein) and to give one of his dazzling lecture-performances. For the third talk, the infamous, influential and controversial writer and critic Terry Eagleton returns once again to present the German version of his book Radical Sacrifice (Opfer). And finally, Curators Aziza Harmel and Bassam El Baroni deliver a double lecture as the exciting finale of the series.

We hope to see you at these lectures. A warm welcome is extended to you from the entire team of the Salzburger Kunstverein!

October Talks is supported by Stadt Salzburg and the Blaue Gans Art Hotel.
