By arrangement

The Schule des Ungehorsams (School of Disobedience) – which was initiated by caricaturist Gerhard Haderer – considers itself a school of thought and an exhibition space that is open to everyone. It aims to make people see disobedience as a positive thing for a change.

Visitors can view works by Gerhard Haderer in the exhibits at Tabakfabrik Linz, the old tobacco factory. In the ‘Ölhades’ exhibition, you’ll find Haderer’s outstanding masterpieces. His ingenious sense of humour is evident in these large oil paintings. The artist’s latest sketches are also presented on an ongoing basis at the Schule des Ungehorsams (School of Disobedience).

At the same time, the Schule des Ungehorsams is also a project that encourages people to have their own well-informed ideas regarding politically relevant topics in society and prevailing opinions as well as to take a creative approach to troublesome circumstances rather than capitulating to them.

Linking like-minded people together, serving as a meeting point for their thoughts, ideas and impetuses, and creating opportunities to have fun while bringing these projects to life where necessary and appropriate – these are the aims of the Schule des Ungehorsams. These goals will be furthered with the kind support of creative minds from Austria and abroad in some cases. Discussions and question sessions invite visitors to become actively involved.
