The commemoration of Hermann Nitsch, Gedenkfest, will take place on Thursday 16 June, 2022 at the Nitsch Museum in Mistelbach, Austria. Starting at 2 PM, after the greetings of the Museum's director Michael Karrer, there will be several talks to remember him as a man and as an artist. Among the personalities who knew him and accompanied him in his work there will be the curator Lóránd Hegyi.

During the celebration, scores by Nitsch and Beethoven will be performed by the Klangvereinigung Wien. At the end of the day there will be a procession, accompanied by the notes of Venkovanka, along the Walk of Dionysus; a way to re-enter the creed of the artist, in his eternal desire to exalt life and death, to recognize its impetus and beauty, without limits, falsifications or doubts.
