The non-profit Klimt Foundation has been organizing the international Gustav Klimt Symposium since 2022 on the initiative of the board of directors Peter Weinhäupl and Sandra Tretter. The scientific conference is always held biennially at different "Klimt locations" and important places of activity and invites researchers and Klimt enthusiasts to discover new interdisciplinary angles and perspectives in the work of the Art Nouveau artist.


The 3rd Gustav Klimt Symposium is expected to take place in Bad Gastein in early summer 2026.


Registration via this website is mandatory for participation. The online registration form will be available approximately eight weeks before the event. Important information and notes on the conference will also be announced at the same time.

Live stream

The symposium will be streamed live. This is intended to enable worldwide participation for all interested parties. Viewers will also have the opportunity to ask questions about the lectures in the live stream. Selected questions will be asked on site at the end of each lecture.

Simultaneous translation

The event will be simultaneously translated into English and German on site (via headset) and in the live stream.


Selected parts of the program will be recorded and made available later as part of the online review.
