Call for contributions Vienna: 1900: Brussels – until 31 December 2014

International Workshop/Publication

Between the 1880’s and the 1920’s, an international network of transcultural exchanges led to accelerated innovations in multiple cultural fields in many parts of Europe. Strong emphasis has been made by researchers and exhibitors on the relations between Vienna and Paris, which was considered the capital of culture, attracting craftsmen, artists, musicians, and writers from all over Europe.

We are looking for book contributions in literature, theatre, architecture, design, music, opera, psychoanalysis, politics, popular culture, visual arts, and all cultural fields acknowledging and analysing the interdisciplinary and transcultural networks of Brussels and Vienna around 1900.

In cooperation with the Wirth Institute for Austrian and Central European Studies at the University of Alberta, we are planning to publish a volume and to discuss the contributions in a workshop in Edmonton (September 10-12, 2015). We will be considering circulating all accepted contributions to participants, beforehand.

The abstracts (300 words and short biography) must be sent by December 31, 2014

Exhibition Art Nouveau - European Architecture in Georgia at the Art Nouveau Museum in Riga – from 13 September to 30 November 2014

Information about Art Nouveau arrived in Georgia from Russia and Europe via the shortest route - the Black Sea. Art Nouveau expanded rapidly through different kinds of publications: professional, popular and fashion magazines, and photos and people who came to work or study in the country. Compared to Europe Georgia was rather backward in development but this fact didn't stop the style being popular amongst customers and builders. With surprising unanimity people from different social groups had Art Nouveau style apartment houses built. The popularity of Art Nouveau was stirred by local professionals and craftsmen as well as by the great interest and disposition of the population towards the style. These factors together led to the building of numerous multifunctional, rather complicated examples of the style.
