Is art all about big ideas and big constructions? No, art lies in the eye of the beholder, even in little Liechtenstein. Art is not about size but about dexterity, creativity, heart and soul. That is what art is not only in Liechtenstein.
Art in Liechtenstein is not monumental, obvious art designed to be displayed in the world's major cities. Instead, it is a game of hide and seek. It creeps up on you and surprises you in public places, between shops, at the entrance to a building or as part of the architecture. There is plenty of art to discover just remember to keep your eyes open!
The Professional Association of Visual Artists ("Berufsverband Bildender KünstlerInnen") supports and protects Liechtenstein's burgeoning culture scene. It aims to promote all forms of visual art in Liechtenstein and represents the interests of its members in dealings with authorities and organisations at both at national and international level. It also provides information and advice for artists and art enthusiasts.
Liechtenstein has a vibrant art scene. Artists from the Principality exhibit their work both at home and abroad and participate in many biennales, while film festivals, publications and exchange programmes with other countries are also a major part of the local art scene. Both the public and private sector frequently invest in ambitious architecture projects. Painters, graphic designers, video artists, sculptors, photographers and filmmakers all contribute to creating exciting and diverse art made in Liechtenstein.
