Based on the work and the relationships of Hans Josef Weber-Tyrol (Schwaz 1874-1957 Meran) and Artur Nikodem (Trient 1870-1940 Innsbruck), the main focus of the exhibition project is the representation of the artistic network around these two artists in the first Half of the 20th century in the European region of Tyrol, South Tyrol, Trentino. With their work and their biographies, both artists are exemplary of the mobility that is the focus of the “Transport - Transit - Mobility” theme of the Euregio Museums 2021. Hans Josef Weber-Tyrol not only developed his art along the lines of Impressionism and Expressionism, he is also a geographical commuter between the north - Munich and Tyrol (Schwaz and Innsbruck) - and the south - South Tyrol (Bozen, Klausen, Lana, Eppan etc.). Travels take him to Venice, Rome and Naples. In addition, like Artur Nikodem, he stayed at Lake Garda again and again. Like Weber-Tyrol, Artur Nikodem is one of the great Tyrolean artists of the 20th century. Both painters designed their own intellectual and artistic models, whereby they influenced each other for a while. While Nicodem went from Trento via Meran to Innsbruck, where he stayed until the end of his life, Weber-Tyrol longed to come to the south more and more often and to stay there forever. The focus of the exhibitions in the Rabalderhaus in Schwaz and the Lanserhaus in Eppan are the respective places of residence as well as the associations, groups and groups that have provided both artists with artistic and intellectual nourishment and stimulation over the years. The interactions that arise under the aspect of an intensified geographical mobility of the two artists and which lead to an expansion of the intellectual and artistic horizons professionally, are evident in the efforts of both artists to expand and modernize the domestic concept of art. In the exhibition part at MAG in Riva, both artists are brought into relation with the landscape and human image of the Trentino artists of that time. In addition, the “longing for the south” is expressed with the images of Lake Garda by both artists. In addition to works by Hans Josef Weber-Tyrol and Artur Nikodem, works by Luigi Bonazza, Anton Colli, Albin Egger-Lienz, Tullio Garbari, Ignaz Gabloner, Orazio Gaigher, Gilbert Heidegger, Josef Kienlechner, Alexander Koester, Umberto Moggioli, Ludwirg Penz are shown , Luigi Pizzinini, Theodor Prachensky, Wilhelm Nikolaus Prachensky, Ignaz Stolz and Albert Weisgerber.
