Reopening to the public of The Casa Vicens in Barcelona in 2016


Casa Vicens, located in Carrer de les Carolines in Barcelona´s Gràcia district, will open its doors to the public in 2016. The major Andorran banking firm MoraBanc recently purchased the building and plans to turn it into a house-museum after its restoration.

Casa Vicens was the first important commission that Antoni Gaudí i Cornet received in 1883, shortly after completing his architectural studies. The opening of the building, declared a National Heritage Cultural Site, will mark the recovery of another Modernista gem for the city of Barcelona.

Exhibition Art Nouveau in the Treasuries of Subotica at the Municipal Museum in Subotica – until April 2014


The temporary exhibition of the Municipal Museum of Subotica titled "Art Nouveau in the Treasuries of Subotica" presents art nouveau painting, sculpture, applied art, handicraft and industrial products from public collections of Subotica on an exhibition area of 200 m2. It intends to call attention to Art Nouveau objects preserved in public collections of the town, as well as to highlight the fact that the art nouveau style should not be noticed only in the monuments of architectural heritage in Subotica.

The centenary of finishing the construction of the Art Nouveau Town Hall designed by Marcell Komor (1868–1944) and Dezső Jakab (1864–1932) served as the occasion for preparing the exhibition in September 2012. This exhibition covers all the phases of Art Nouveau: the early period (from 1890’s to the turn of the 19th and 20th century), the mature (1900–1914) and the late (from 1914 to 1930’s) phases of the style.

The objects are presented within several smaller subject matters: characteristic items of male and female spheres of middle-class homes (fashion, bringing up children, personal hygiene, collections – okimono from Japan, medals –, the culture of reading, listening to music, concept of spare time, relaxation, engagement in fine arts, photography), as well as several characteristic scenes and phenomena of public life (coffee-house, cinema, concerts, Japanese fashion, spa life in Palić etc.).

The exhibition is open to visitors until April 2014.

4th Multilateral Exchange of the RANN at Jugendstilsenteret in Alesund – on 21 March 2014


“The preservation of Art Nouveau in a changing environment”

Nature has been a great source of inspiration in the development of Art Nouveau. The style itself constitutes a substantial part of our heritage and cultural environment. In many European cities, the Art Nouveau buildings are perceived as a symbol of modernity, national or regional identity, as well as a great opportunity for tourism and business.

After decades of struggling for preservation and conservation, the owners or managers of such buildings now have to face new environmental challenges : climate changes represent a threat for safeguarding heritage buildings and materials (problems of insulation, humidity, modification of woodworks, rise of sea level, rise in temperature, etc.) ; the migration of populations to cities also leads to radical alterations of urban landscapes (division of heritage buildings, high constructions, estate pressure in the suburbs areas, modification of the size of gardens of the Art Nouveau buildings) and the resulting urban pollution is harmful for preserving this type of buildings and their environment.

How to face these phenomena? In this context, what are the means used and solutions found locally to preserve Art Nouveau buildings?

Free participation, compulsory registration

The Horta Museum in Brussels laureate of the 2014 Europa Nostra Awards!


The Horta Museum (Brussels, Belgium) won the EU prize for Cultural heritage / Europa Nostra Awards 2014, in the category 1 devoted to “conservation”.

“What particularly impressed the Jury about the Horta Museum conservation project was its precision and patient attention to detail. (…) Also exemplary was the perfect synergy which developed between the museum curator and the conservation architect: they succeeded in making themselves unobtrusive enough to allow Victor Horta, so to speak, to undertake the restoration of his own home.”
