Exhibitions on Vienna Modernism

Leopold Museum 

Egon Schiele. The Jubilee show
December 6, 2018 - March 10, 2019

Paintings, works on paper and numerous archive records (documents, certificates, etc.) highlight the main aspects of Egon Schiele's creativity: his departure from tradition, finding himself as an expressionist artist, breaking taboos, spirituality and transformation as well as the special portrait presentations. The oil paintings and drawings focus on the expressionist years (1910-1914). The works on paper are shown not in their entirety but in three "runs" for restoration reasons. Important loaned items round out the museum's collection.

A Viennese Attire
Dec 6, 2018 - March 4, 2019

The Viennese fashion designer Arthur Arbesser took his inspiration for a limited collection from his home town and Vienna Modernism. The fashion collection and its showcasing by celebrity photographer Elfie Semotan can now be seen in an exhibition at the Leopold Museum.

MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art

Koloman Moser. Universal Artist between Gustav Klimt and Josef Hoffmann
December 19, 2018 – April 22, 2019

The Wiener Werkstätte archives, built up by the community of the same name established by Koloman Moser (1868–1918), Josef Hoffmann and Fritz Waerndorfer in 1903, are now owned by the MAK. The aim of this internationally respected group was to bring art into all areas of human existence. Moser, who worked as a painter, graphic artist and craftsman for Wiener Werkstätte until 1907, also taught at the Wiener Kunstgewerbeschule school between 1899 and 1918. This exhibition highlights his extensive output.

Theater Museum

Applications. Koloman Moser and the stage
October 18, 2018 - April 22, 2019

In its anniversary year, the Theatre Museum is dedicated to the previously little known stage creations of the versatile "jack of all trades" Kolo Moser. In addition to the overall show in the MAK - Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art, theater works will be shown from the intimate cabaret stage to the grand opera set. There is also the opportunity to see the recently acquired stage sets and costume designs for Julius Bittner's opera "Der Bergsee". The premiere of the work designed by Kolo Moser was performed at the Imperial and Royal Court Opera Theater in Vienna on November 9, 1911. Also on display in the exhibition will be Klimt's painting "Nuda Veritas", which comes from the estate of the literary figure Hermann Bahr.

Klimt Villa - Gustav Klimt’s Studio

Klimt lost
May 5, 2018 - July 31, 2019

Klimt is ubiquitous, his artworks world-famous. Little attention is paid to looted art, lost artworks and the stories about collectors, perpetrators and victims. The exhibition at the Klimt Villa asks how we deal with loss, which goes far beyond individual artworks. And it presents the protagonists of those times as well as the lost Klimts from a new angle.

Various locations/Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for the History and Theory of Biography

Young Vienna. Nature plus X
March 7, 2018 – April 27, 2019
