Release of the 23th issue of the coupDefouet Magazine from Barcelona


CoupDefouet is published by the Urban Landscape Institute of the Barcelona City Council, which has the common commitment to find useful and efficient mechanisms for the protection and promotion of Europe's Art Nouveau heritage.

This new release, which highlights the Hungarian architect Ödon Lechner, is especially interesting as it dedicates one article to the travelling exhibition "The Nature of Art Nouveau" organised by the RANN, which is actually presented in Bad Nauheim (until 26 October 2014) and will be soon in Barcelona (from the beginning of October until 6 January 2015), written by the curator of the exhibition, Teresa M. Sala.

Exhibition And yet there was Art! at the Leopold Museum in Vienna – from 9 May to 15 September 2014


Austria 1914–1918

The assassination of the Austrian heir to the throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, on the 28th of June 1914 in Sarajevo was the fatal trigger of World War I. One hundred years on, the Leopold Museum is dedicating a comprehensive exhibition to the fate of Austrian artists (Egon Schiele, Albin Egger-Lienz, Anton Kolig, Kolo Moser, Gustav Klimt...) who were active between 1914 and 1918.

Selected works by contemporary artists from Italy, Romania, Russia and Serbia – the countries that Austria-Hungary fought on the frontlines during World War I – create a connection to the present. Presented in the exhibition are 200 works, 40 of which hail from the collection of the Leopold Museum, 30 from the Leopold Collection II and 130 from public and private Austrian and international lenders. The historical objects are complemented by contemporary art interventions.

The anniversary exhibition to Artists’ Colony Exhibition of 1914 at the Mathildenhöhe (on the day exactly 100 years after this last historic Great Exhibition after the ones in 1901, 1904 and 1908 - presents with works by Albin Müller, Bernhard Hoetger, Elizabeth Duncan, Friedrich Wilhelm Kleukens, Emanuel Josef Margold, Arnold Mendelssohn and Heinrich Jobst the whole spectrum of creative work from architecture and painting to sculpture and applied arts to music and dance. Historical documents and works of art highlight the importance of this exhibition before the great war.

To bring alive the spirit of the Artists’ Colony Exhibition of 1914, the Künstlerkolonie Museum (Artists' Colony Museum) presents both paintings, sculptures, drawings, jewelry and photographs from the Municipal Art Collection of Darmstadt as well as valuable loans from public and private collections. They bear witness to the unbroken optimism of modernity, which ruled in the Darmstadt Artists' Colony until the outbreak of the First World War and which is still noticeable on the Mathildenhöhe.
