Temporary opening of the Autrique House in Brussels – from 16 February to 31 December 2015


Due to restoration works on the façades and a updating of the scenography, the opening to the public will be reduced from Monday 16 February 2015 and until the end of the year. Meanwhile only temporary events and visits by appointment, function of the restoration works’ schedule, will be possible.

For ten years, the Autrique House is opened to the public thanks to the joint determination of several friends and the intervention of the Schaerbeek Municipality which was the purchaser of the property. François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters are initiators of the rehabilitation project of this youth work of the famous Victor Horta. They made it a “house of houses”, a poetic home suspended in time.

II coupDefouet International Congress in Barcelona – from 25 to 28 June 2015


Breaking the Art Nouveau Glass Ceiling

The Art Nouveau European Route brings together local governments and other institutions in the common quest for the protection, promotion and diffusion of Art Nouveau heritage. To fully explore and bring to light the value of Art Nouveau heritage, therefore, a Congress organised by the Art Nouveau European Route cannot limit its scope to the analyses and interpretation of the tangible heritage; it must go deeper into the reality of the communities that created it.
In this second edition of the coupDefouet International Congress, we propose to shed new light on an aspect that has been studied very little, if at all: the important contribution of women artists to the development of Art Nouveau. In a nutshell: women as artists, women as creators, women as promoters and protagonists of Art Nouveau. Coupled with this ambition, we also wish to revisit the widely studied and interpreted representation of the female aesthetic and ideal in Art Nouveau, with new contributions on the matter.
A further strand will focus on little-known Art Nouveau cities, in which we expect to discover creative centres of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that have not until now been widely publicised. A similar section on research in progress to the first congress, one in which we welcome presentations from both seasoned and young researchers, will complete the thematic strands of the programme.

Vienna represented in the exhibition In the time of Klimt at the Pinacothèque in Paris – from 12 February to 21 June 2015


The Vienna Secession

The Pinacothèque de Paris, in partnership with Arthemisia Group and 24 ORE Cultura, wishes to examine once again an essential aspect of Art Nouveau, which was developed in Vienna at the start of the 20th century under the name Secession. Gustav Klimt's part in the emerging of that movement is a major one. The artist's talent and brio, from his precocious start to his excessive decorative effects, where gildings and the emerging expressionism are dominant, are the foundations of a new period, which flowered in Vienna at the turn of the century. That artistic movement is, in fact, at the origin of the birth, a few years later, of one of the major currents in modern art, Expressionism, which was the theme of an exhibition in the museum in 2011.

The exhibition shows over 180 works taken from the collections of the Belvedere museum in Vienna, as well as from private collections. The curatorship of the exhibition is ensured by Alfred Weidinger, curator of the Belvedere museum in Vienna.
