Bank Austria is a bank associated to the Italian banking and financial group UniCredit. It pays attention to cultural issues, and has allotted a permanent space at its headquarters in Vienna for carrying out cultural events. This space is called “Bank Austria Kunstforum”. The events mainly consist of temporary art exhibitions; they generally are of very high quality, so, when you are in Vienna, you are advised to keep an eye on what is going on there. Admission is always on payment. At the time of my visit there was a very good retrospective exhibition of Balthus paintings; many Tripadvisor’s reviewers have enthusiastically reported on it.
The only reason for visiting the Kunstforum is to attend the events organized at this venue. The location is very central (8, Freyung Street), midway between Stephansplatz and the Schottentor; it can be easily reached on foot from both places. The buses 1A and 2A stop at its doorstep. The surrounding area is extremely interesting from the architectural point of view, with baroque churches and palaces; there is an intense scent of “old Vienna”.
