Wien, 24-25 October 2002

Centered on the same theme as the exhibition “Art Nouveau in Progress”, this international colloqium examined the ways in which the Art Nouveau heritage has been promoted throughout the 20th century. It retraces the history of its gradual rediscovery and emphasizes the current problems involved in its preservation and presentation. A wide range of European examples will serves to illustrate the fate of this heritage, which is still in jeopardy or currently benefitting from processes of restoration and transformation.
