Vienna is a perfect place to think about European history, and a strange place of history – and especially so when it comes to the Imperial Treasury.
What does one tell – what is there to tell? – of the sixth participation in the same event, the Bergmarathon (mountain marathon) around the Traunsee lake?
The fortress of Hohensalzburg towers above Salzburg; the museums on and around the adjacent Mönchsberg give it even more cultural cachet and obvious Alpine character…
And yet, when you measure it in your own steps, you really get to know a place, and it turns out differently from how you may have thought it was.
What if you – or actually, modern artists- thought about nature as an actor? The nature found in classical works of art? To perform the thoughts, bring the art into a conversation?
You’d get Ganymed Nature, this year’s edition of the Ganymed art performances, bringing paintings to modern interpretive life.
Feeding people during the Lent fasting season may be strange, showing love as well… but traditions are kept alive even as they change and adapt their original intentions.

Tokyo, on my arrival and first days, presented itself as a megalopolis from high up, that felt like a collection of villages on the ground.
