Prisma Gallery

Close to Bolzano’s old town, the Prisma Gallery has been a central meeting place for art and culture since 1989.

In the Via Weggenstein road, just above the Arcades in Bolzano, is St. George in Weggenstein, the well-known church of the Teutonic Order. Right next to it are the historic walls of the Deutschhaus, home to the Prisma Gallery of the South Tyrolean Artists Association. The used vaulted hall is 160 sq m in size and provides a venerable setting for readings, symposia and other cultural events.

In addition to cultural events, the Prisma Gallery, which opened in 1989, sees itself as a central meeting place for art and culture. About 10 exhibitions a year are mainly dedicated to members of the South Tyrolean Artists Association, each exhibition lasts three weeks. These include the oil paintings of "Daughter from the Everglades" (2020) by Ivo Mahlknecht as well as, for example, the group exhibition "Wohin geht die Reise? Alles ist Wechselwirkung" (2020) in cooperation with the Künstlerforum, an architecture exhibition or performances by international artists.

In summer, the gallery serves as a workshop, laboratory and research space for artists. And how to reach it? The Via Weggenstein road joins the north end of the Via Bottai alley (South Tyrol Museum of Natural History) and is a few minutes' walk from the old town. The city bus lines stop at the Piazza Walther square, 600 m away, there is also a basement car park.

Currently, access may be subject to certain restrictions.
