In 2012 Hungarian painter László Fehér transformed the Ringturm into a towering canvas with his creation Gesellschaft (Society). It was the first time that an artist from one of Austria’s neighbouring countries was commissioned to produce an exclusive work for the tower’s transformation.
“This year we deliberately chose an artist from our friend and neighbour Hungary, László Fehér, to produce a work for the Ringturm’s traditional artistic covering. Austria and Hungary share very close historical ties. “Fehér’s dedication to this project reflects a commitment to promoting cross-border cultural exchange – a commitment shared by our Group. It is also intended to underline our close links with the whole of Central and Eastern Europe. His work is an expression of friendship and togetherness – values that are central to us as insurers,” commented CEO Günter Geyer.
