Dream House at the Regenbogenstadl Polling
Kunst im Regenbogenstadl (Sound - Light - Space Foundation) is dedicated to the extensive life's work of the American artists La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela. In the Dream House conceived by the two artists, sound and light form a unity, a sound and light environment. Concerts, symposia and seminars are held here regularly.
In the Pollinger Dream House, the video performances "The Well-Tuned Piano in the Magenta Lights" and "Raga Sundara in Dream Light" are presented as permanent installations. La Monte Young (*1935) has been considered a pioneer of extended durations in contemporary music since the 1950s. Marian Zazeela (b. 1940) has been unfolding her unique iconographic oeuvre for over 40 years, expanding traditional concepts of painting, printmaking and sculpture to create novel works incorporating the medium of light.

The FischerBau with Dan Flavin's installation "Untitled, 1970" from outside, Photo: Michael Jarnach
The FischerBau is named after its builder, Johann Michael Fischer, who erected it in 1745/46 as a beer cooling house for the monastery in Polling. The stately building with a cantilevered roof truss over approx. 500 m2 of floor space and 8 large vaulted cellars has been used for exhibitions since 2003, following extensive restoration. In cooperation with the DASMAXIMUM Foundation, the Fischerbau has hosted two exhibition projects to date. In 2015 the exhibition "Joa Baldinger. Until even memory itself vanishes" and from 2016 to 2019 the installation of "Untitled, 1970", a monumental light art work by American artist Dan Flavin.

Dia Art Foundation New York
Together with Philippa De Menil and Helen Winkler, DASMAXIMUM founder Heiner Friedrich established the Dia Art Foundation in New York in 1974. The aim of the foundation is to support art projects that would otherwise be impossible to realize due to their size and/or cost (see, for example, Walter De Maria's "The Lightning Field", 1977).
But not only the founding history connects DASMAXIMUM with the Dia Art Foundation: Among other things, the Dia Art Foundation supports DASMAXIMUM with four permanent loans of the artist John Chamberlain.
