Exhibitions 2018

Lower Belvedere

Austria-Hungary 1918
February – May 2018

The final decade of the monarchy marked the dawn of the Modernist era in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. This exhibition looks at the exciting artistic advances of this unique period, during which the work of Viennese greats such as Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele was in constant dialog with a variety of figures including leading Czech cubists, painters in the Hungarian Nyolcak group, representatives of Slovenia’s Sava group and many others. The parallels, divergences and interchange between the work being produced by artists across the multicultural Habsburg Empire are brought to life.

Egon Schiele at the Belvedere
June – September 2018

In this show, the Belvedere is giving pride of place to its extensive collection of oil paintings by Egon Schiele. Each piece is given additional context by sketches, related pieces, works by the artist’s contemporaries, archive material and photographs. The exhibition will raise the public profile of the Belvedere’s impressive Schiele collection, which includes several pieces that were acquired during the artist’s lifetime.

Reflections: Klimt in an international context
October 2018 – February 2019

The Belvedere is mounting a comprehensive show, co-curated by the Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam, looking at Gustav Klimt’s international influences. His works will be considered in comparison with various pieces that influenced his approach, in a thought-provoking show that explores how artists such as Monet, Van Gogh and Whistler inspired his output.

MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art

Koloman Moser
December 2018 – April 2019

The Wiener Werkstätte archives, built up by the community of the same name established by Koloman Moser, 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.

Wien Museum 

Otto Wagner. Anniversary exhibition
March – September 2018

Wagner shaped more than just Viennese architecture with this buildings, unrealized projects, essays and teaching activities. Comprising around 1,000 sketches, items of furniture and personal items, his estate is one of the Wien Museum’s most highly prized assets. The exhibition presents Wagner’s oeuvre within the context of his contemporaries and detractors, while also looking at the wider cultural, artistic and political environment of his day. Selected pieces also reflect his international reach.

Leopold Museum 

Plurality of opposites: Vienna around 1900
New permanent exhibition from January 2018

The early Modernist era was a time of opposites sparking creative inspiration. It was a laboratory of progressive ideas that reflected the diversity found in society. This new permanent exhibition explores fin de siècle art – the core of the collection – beyond the confines of fine art. It focuses on the period as a golden age for philosophy, psychology, architecture, music, dance and literature. The artists’ works are embedded within the context of the ideas that inspired them.

Secession 

Vienna Secession – Gustav Klimt, Koloman Moser and the Art of their Time
March – October 2018

Koloman Moser’s wreath-bearer frieze is a central feature of the Secession’s architecture. His row of dancing girls provided an important counterpart to the entwined laurels found on the building’s famous gilt dome and exterior wall. The lost plaster relief that once adorned the back of the Secession will be reconstructed to provide one of the highlights of the exhibition. In addition to materials used to reconstruct the wreath bearers, works and documents dating back to the breakaway collective’s early days will be on show. Klimt’s Beethoven Frieze is on permanent display.

Arnold Schönberg Center

Arnold Schoenberg and young Vienna
March – June 2018

Café Griensteidl was a popular haunt of artists and intellectuals in 1890s Vienna. A young Schoenberg was among its patrons. The central figures frequenting the café came from the Jung-Wiener literary circle headed by Peter Altenberg, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Arthur Schnitzler and Felix Salten. Respected author Hermann Bahr acted as a mentor to the group. The exhibition looks at Schoenberg’s Jung-Wiener connections and his role as key figure in – and beyond – the world of music.

Imperial Furniture Collection

Wagner, Loos, Hoffmann. Furniture design in Viennese Modernism. Artists and Producers.
March – Summer/Fall 2018

This exhibition presents the work of the key architects of the Wiener Moderne – Otto Wagner, Adolf Loos and Josef Hoffmann – as interior designers and furniture designers and their differing approaches to the two crafts. Another part of the show looks at the manufacturers behind the furniture and interiors as well as their often high-profile patrons.

Literature Museum

Viennese Modernism and its Networks. Alban Berg, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Berta Zuckerkandl
April 2018 – February 2019

A prominent salon host and publicist, Zuckerkandl was friends with numerous artists. Wittgenstein’s work influenced the philosophers and writers of his day. And Alban Berg rose to fame and notoriety with his musical interpretations of Peter Altenberg’s texts. This exhibition explores them and their network, revealing the clear links between the worlds of literature, art, music, architecture and philosophy.

Jewish Museum Vienna

Arnstein, Todesco, Zuckerkandl. Hostesses and their Salons between Art and Politics
Start of April – end of September 2018

This exhibition presents turn-of-the-century salons as hotbeds of cultivated political debate and political centers of culture, while illustrating the primarily Jewish hostesses’ contribution to the capital’s cultural, commercial and political life. The extinction of salon culture in the final years of the monarchy is another focus. Fanny von Arnstein, Sophie von Todesco and Berta Zuckerkandl were among the leading salon hostesses of their time.

Ernst Fuchs Museum 

Old Viennese Salon Culture – Dazzling Stage for a Society
June – September 2018
The history of the Viennese salon provides ample food for thought in a new exhibition hosted in the beautifully preserved art nouveau villa once owned by Otto Wagner. It recreates a detailed portrait of the era using a blend of cultural, political and sociological components. Another focus is the stories behind the leading salon participants of the day.

Bulgarian Cultural Institute / Wittgenstein House

The Tractatus Odyssey - 100 years of the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus
Mid-October to end November 2018

In August 1918, while on his final leave from the front, Ludwig Wittgenstein dictated the final version of his logico-philosophical treatise, a work that later attained worldwide fame under the title "Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus" and influenced countless works of literature, music, painting, architecture and film. The life of the Viennese philosopher, the creation of the Tractatus and its impact on the cultural history of the 20th and 21st centuries is traced in Wittgenstein House with numerous original documents.
