Salon 2010, Kulturverlag Polzer

Salon 2010, Kulturverlag Polzer

Salon is an annual magazine that is published as a companion to the events of the Salzburg Festival.

The publication's name was inspired by the famous gatherings of artists, musicians and writers organised by Max Reinhardt during the 1930s. Much like Reinhardt's salons, the magazine provides a stage for cultural discourse. In addition, Salon features behind the scenes analysis and an insight into the production of the performances at the Festival.

The bilingual layout of the magazine, with its playful typography and generous imagery, is a perfect match for the richness and diversity of the event. Features, essays and commentary present artists, musicians, writers and photographers with their reflections on the Festival theme: Where god and man collide, tragedy ensues (by Michael Köhlmeier).
