Chess and Arts in the House of Sports
The Hall of Mirrors in the House of Sports has been turned into a chess museum. Chess is a cultural asset, a game, and a sport, but also an art form of great beauty and creativity. The exhibition presents the manifold connections between chess and art. In their exhibits, various artists illustrate how chess inspires art and at the same time is lived as an art form in its own right.
During a simultaneous match with grandmaster Markus Ragger, everyone is invited to indulge in the art of chess.
