Welcome to the HOseum - a unique combination of a 5-star superior hotel and a museum. 200 works of art from the family collection Haselsteiner hang in the stylish rooms of the neoclassical palace on the Wörthersee.
In the lobby, you will discover museum works by Georg Baselitz, Maria Lassnig, Markus Lüpertz, Karel Appel, and Arnulf Rainer. Georg Baselitz became famous with his upside-down motifs, which put the act of painting in the foreground and freed the object from its actual meaning. He is among the greatest painters of our time. The show "Naked Masters" can currently be seen at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, which is a visual dialogue between Georg Baselitz and the Old Masters.
Neighboring Baselitz's works in the magnificent lobby of Hotel Schloss Seefels is so-called "painter prince" Markus Lüpertz, who conquered the art world with his expressive paintings.
The next important display in the entrance is the exceptional work "Knight with Bird" by one of the most important contemporary Austrian painters Maria Lassnig. Her painting shows figuration without a simple realistic depiction - Lassnig paints the subject not the object. It's always self-portraits enriched with surreal elements that create a peculiar and very specific balance between closeness and strangeness.
Another highlight in the lobby are works by Karel Appel. Along with Pierre Alechinsky and Asgar, the Dutch artist belonged to the artist group COBRA, which was founded in the 1950s and developed an autonomous world of images and an expressive use of forms. Works by Alechinsky and Jorn subsequently enrich the exclusively furnished suites.
Especially impressive works by painter Markus Prachensky, an important representative of Informalism, give the hotel suites an impressive character.
Local Carinthian art personalities such as Ernst Gradischnig, Anton Mahringer, Hans Staudacher, Karl Stark, or contemporary artist Gudrun Kampl enrich the rooms with their own individual visual language.
Outstanding works by Christian Ludwig Attersee can also be found in the rooms. Attersee's main themes are beauty, eroticism, and sensuality. For Attersee, painting in itself is a sensual act. Luminous colors, dynamic brushstrokes, and figurative, often symbolic depictions characterize his works. Background associations and imaginative narrative aspects flow into his paintings.
First-class works of art by important Austrian artist Kiki Kogelnik, who is currently being honored with a retrospective at the Bank Austria Kunstforum in Vienna, can be found on the walls of the individually designed rooms. Kiki Kogelnik is seen as an Austrian representative of Pop Art. She is constantly expanding the many facets of her artistic work with a great passion for all things playful.
Discover a special abstract early work by Hubert Schmalix in the area in front of the wellness area, from a creative phase before the artist turned to figuration, for which he later became widely known. Along with Siegfried Anzinger, Herbert Brandl and Alois Mosbacher, who are also represented with works in the hotel, Hubert Schmalix became known as a representative of "New Painting" in the 1980s.
Other big names such as Hermann Nitsch, Peter Pongratz, Günther Förg, Sam Francis, and Xenia Hausner are also represented with their works. In the same way, select younger artists such as Amani Broggi, Daniel Horvath, Billi Thanner, and Attila Adorjan, with his sensational photorealistic works, complete the art atmosphere at Hotel Schloss Seefels.
Immerse yourself in a colorful world of images, and draw inspiration from the themes and strength from the world-class works of art.
