Deborah Sengl in Millstatt Abbey

Exhibition with works by Deborah Sengl at Forum Kunst contemporary in Millstatt, Austria

At the Forum Kunst contemporay located in rooms of the former Millstatt Abbey I came across an exhibition with works created by Deborah Sengl. In these works she shows the plot of the theater play ‘The Last Days of Mankind’ (Die letzten Tage der Menschheit) written by Karl Kraus using the bodies of rats instead of figurines of humans.

Cheese platter at Millstatt Lake

Cheese platter at the Alexanderhütte high over Millstatt Lake, Austria

At the Alexanderhütte, a hut high over Millstatt Lake (Millstättersee) I had this faboulous cheese platter with a glass of elderberries sirup. All the cheese was made by an alpine diary attached to the hut. In Austria there are many alpine diaries where dairy(wo)men take care for the cows and produce such cheese and butter the whole summer round.

Before I joined a guided tour through the oldest city of Carinthia named Friesach I had a typical Carinthian dish: Kasnudeln. It was a thinly rolled noodle dough that was shaped into a pocket filled with quark and spiced with mint and chervil.
