The series of events Erfreuliche Universität has been taking place at the Palace since 2006. With lectures, podium discussions and readings it offers academic encounters in parallel to the University in St. Gallen (HSG). For each academic year an artist designs a flag as a backdrop to the events. André Butzer, Albert Oehlen, Klaudia Schifferle and Cosima von Bonin are just some of the high-calibre names who have contributed to the series. This year, in celebration of its tenth anniversary, the Erfreuliche Universität is making a guest appearance at Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen. The ten flags will be presented at an exhibition accompanied by various events.
