In reaction to Vienna's growing industrialization at the turn of the 20th century, various artistic movements in Austria decided to come together and focus their art on sensuality, beauty, and the handmade. Two groups specifically — Vienna’s New Secession and Wiener Werkstätte — were right in the epicenter of this new passionate trend. This is the story of Vienna's rebellious art and artists of the 1900s and their lasting legacy on the art world.
Join New York Adventure Club as we explore Vienna's art revolution of the 1900s that countered Austria's growing industrialization movement, and the eccentric artists who led the movement's most prominent groups.
Led by Sylvia Laudien-Meo — art historian, museum educator, and NYC tour guide — this virtual journey through Vienna art will include:
Afterward, we'll have a Q&A with Sylvia — any and all questions about Vienna's revolutionary art and artists are welcomed and encouraged!
