Open house at the Otto Wagner Hofpavillon Hietzing in Vienna– on 21 to 22 June 2014


At the Hietzing subway station stands “Pavillon des k.u.k. Allerhöchsten Hofes” (“Pavillon of the k.u.k. of the highest Court”) designed by Otto Wagner and opened in 1899. He served to the emperor and his guests and members of the court as entry and exit point when they travelled once with the Wiener Stadtbahn.
The central space of the Hofpavillon, the waiting room of the Emperor, contained a table and chairs in front of a view of Vienna by Carl Moll. Here was also a desk so that the Emperor was able to work during the waiting period. And it was possible to send telegrams from the loggia.

Due to disrepair, the site of the Vienna Museum had to be closed for a few years. Thanks to an extensive renovation by the construction and building management of the City of Vienna (MA 34) the architectural jewel is once again open to the public.

Saturday, June 21, and Sunday, June 22 from 10 am to 18 pm
Free admission on both days!

Thereafter, the Pavilion will be open every Saturday and Sunday 10-18 clock.

The Synagogue of Subotica listed as one of the Europe’s 7 most endangered monuments and sites by Europa Nostra


Europa Nostra announced on 4 May in Vienna the list of the Europe’s 7 most endangered monuments and sites, among them, the Synagogue in Subotica.

This is one of the finest examples of Art Nouveau religious architecture in Central Europe. Designed by Hungarian architects Marcell Komor and Dezsö Jakab and built in 1902, the Synagogue of Subotica combines a modern concrete and steel structure with traditional decorative elements from Hungarian Folk Art. It is acknowledged as a Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance.

At the time the synagogue was built the city had a large Jewish population of around 3,000 people. After World War II, this number fell and a building of this size could no longer be sustained. Nonetheless, the synagogue remains of huge importance to the Jewish community both locally and internationally.
The building was used by the Subotica National Theatre for a number of years but is now empty, with visitor access available only one day a week, and its condition has inevitably deteriorated.

Despite the restoration works undertaken in recent decades, the building remains highly endangered. International expertise and solidarity are needed to save this architectural and cultural gem. Urgent action is therefore needed.

Rescue missions will be organised during and after the summer and feasible action plans proposed by the end of the year.

Publication Emile and Henriette Gallé Correspondence 1875-1904 


Publication recommended by our partner of Ecole de Nancy Museum

If the "Writings for art” which brings together many texts of Gallé that his wife Henriette published in 1908, four years after the death of her husband, say a lot of our artist (born in 1846 in Nancy, where he died in 1904 ), they do not tell the whole story. Only his extensive correspondence enables actually to grasp his complex personality of man and artist. What is revealed here is certainly the inaccessible part, also the most intimate, of the correspondence of our artist which must be considered as unpublished: the one, crossed between the two spouses, preserved by their descendants.

Sant Pau Modernista Hospital in Barcelona now open to the public

Terrible blaze at the Glasgow School of Art – 23 May 2014


A terrible blaze, which started in the basement just before lunchtime, hit the Glasgow School of Art on 23 May 2014.

Firefighters who were at the scene within four minutes of receiving the first emergency call brought the fire under control, but it damaged much of the west wing of the Category-A listed building where students were preparing for their final-year degree show.

Besides the “hen run”, the library, which housed rare and archival materials including periodicals from the early 19th century and publications about Mackintosh, was destroyed. A team of specialist conservation staff from Historic Scotland is now working with the school's own archivists to retrieve and conserve vulnerable materials.

The school site remained under the control of the Scottish fire and rescue service until Friday 30 May for the salvage operation. Students from the Glasgow School of Art formed a guard of honour to send fire crews on their way as they left the campus.

The art school said that online donations had grown into tens of thousands of pounds, and it was overwhelmed with offers of practical support from conservators, curators and specialists around the world.
