The Réseau Art Nouveau Network now Cultural Route of the Council of Europe!

The Réseau Art Nouveau Network is delighted to announce that it has been approved for certification as a Council of Europe Cultural Route by the Governing Board of the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes (EPA), following the final defense which took place on 11 April 2014 in Luxembourg.

Through numerous activities (travelling exhibitions, colloquiums, publications, activities for children…), the Réseau Art Nouveau Network indeed created since 1999 an active cooperation and an exchange of experiences between multiple European actors concerned by the study and the conservation of the European and International Art Nouveau heritage, as well as by its promotion and diffusion towards the public while underlining the cultural values and the European dimension of this heritage.

It answers thus to the different requested criteria for the granting of this mention (representative theme of the European values common to several countries; projects of multilateral long-term cooperation of scientific research, of heritage conservation and enhancement – especially towards the young Europeans; organisation in independent and structured network…) and has been recognized by the EPA of the Council of Europe as a “a cultural, educational heritage and tourism co-operation project aiming at the development and promotion of an itinerary or a series of itineraries based on a historic route, a cultural concept, figure or phenomenon with a transnational importance and significance for the understanding and respect of common European values.” (Annexe to Resolution CM/Res(2013)66)

It joins the 26 others Cultural Routes certified yet for a three-years collaboration especially with the European Institute of Cultural Routes (EICR), technical body set up in 1998 to ensure the continuity and development of the Cultural Routes programme in the 50 signatory countries of the European Cultural Convention.

The Cultural Routes programme was launched by the Council of Europe in 1987. Its objective was to demonstrate, by means of a journey through space and time, how the heritage of the different countries and cultures of Europe contributes to a shared cultural heritage. The Cultural Routes put into practice the fundamental principles of the Council of Europe: human rights, cultural democracy, cultural diversity and identity, dialogue, mutual exchange and enrichment across boundaries and centuries.

Exhibition World Concepts at the Artists' Colony Museum in Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt – from 6 Mai 2015 to 21 February 2016

The Artists' Colony in Darmstadt 1899 – 1914

New permanent exhibition featuring fine and applied art from Art Nouveau to Modernism: The museum’s numerous artworks, scale models, and multimedia presentations shed light on the outstanding significance of the Darmstadt Artists’ Colony for the development of modern architecture, art and design since 1900.

“World Concepts” chronologically illuminates important events and exhibitions between 1898 and 1914 that illustrate the wide array of artistic work in multiple mediums that defines the Darmstadt Artists’ Colony. The main focus of the exhibition is placed on four major exhibitions that took place on the Mathildenhöhe in the years 1901, 1904, 1908, and 1914, in which fully furnished houses as aesthetic works of art presented a new concept of modern architecture and design. These exhibitions also presented fully functioning restaurants, concerts, theatre productions, and light shows. All aspects of life were represented in modern world concepts.

The new permanent exhibition is on display in both wings of the Artists’ Colony Museum and presents more than 300 works.
All 23 members of the Darmstadt Artists’ Colony are featured in the exhibition, among them the influential architects and designers Peter Behrens, who built his first house in Darmstadt, Joseph Maria Olbrich, as well as the decorative artist Hans Christiansen. Several works of the Darmstadt Municipal Art Collection will be on view for the very first time; for example a pump organ from 1908 designed especially for Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig and recently gifted to the museum.

As part of a new web-app for smart phones, a bilingual audio guide in German and English has been launched to explore the permanent exhibition and the outdoor site of the Mathildenhöhe. In addition, a guide especially designed for children is now available at the front desk of the Artists’ Colony Museum.

Curator: Dr. Philipp Gutbrod, Director of the Institute Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt

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.
