The village of Maishofen, which has about 3.300 inhabitants, is located in the Salzburg region Pinzgau in between the cities of Zell am See and Saalfelden, as well as the, in summer and winter tourism, highly frequented valleys. Like most of the region-s towns, it is of rural origin and has a form of housing structure which is typical for the region. A new community centre is to be built on a plot of fallow land in the town centre, that resulted from the demolition of a historic stable. The building should contain the municipal office as well as the public library. Both are not provided with adequate accommodation at the moment. Furthermore, the integration of a town hall, to host concerts and other events is contemplated. Currently, cultural institutions, such as the Culturkreis Maishofen, the local brass band or the choir, have to use the foyer or the sports hall of the local secondary school. In order to guarantee an adequate degree of capacity utilisation it could be used in combination with an exhibition. Maishofen was home to the artist Anton Faistauer (1887-1930). Even during his lifetime he became very famous and held exhibitions all over Europe. His most important piece of art are the frescoes in the Salzburg Festspielhaus. He constantly moved from one place to another, so he lived, studied and worked in Bolzano, Vienna and Salzburg. During the summer though, he often came back to Maishofen, therefore some of his most important pieces were created there. In 2004, the Anton Faistauer Forum was founded to organise exhibitions and art installations, and to raise awareness for his art among the population. A significant part of Anton Faistauer-s work is privately owned, many of which are in and around Maishofen. By including an exhibition into the community centre, the artist could be given a home in Maishofen again.
