TV film commissioned by the Hagenbundfreunde


A documentary commissioned by our association and realized by PopUp Media Film- & TV-Produktion DER HAGENBUND - DIE VERLORENE MODERNE was broadcast on April 26, 2022 by ORFIII in the 'Erbe Österreich' series. The film aims to bring 'our' artist association out of the shadow of the Künstlerhaus and Secession and to make it known to a wider audience. The presentation of selected locations with works by Hagenbund artists in public space forms the common thread for a mixture of statements by well-known art experts.

THE CLUB OF HAGENBUND FRIENDS TRIGGERED DEBATE ABOUT THE VIENNA ART HISTORY INSTITUTE

Status report from June 2021:
For more than a year we have been pursuing an exciting project: the implementation of more teaching and research on the subject of "Art of the Danube Region in the First Half of the 20th Century" at the Institute for Art History at the University of Vienna - with the aim of providing students with questions Viennese modernism, the Secession, the youth style and Art Deco, Wiener Werkstätte, artists' associations of that time, etc. are confronted. Unfortunately, this topic has only been dealt with incidentally at the University of Vienna for decades. The consequence of this is that the art period, which is of great international interest, is hardly researched and the students miss out on career opportunities as a result. Our basic demand is therefore to broaden our teaching activities in this area of ​​art history so that more academic work can be carried out by students in this area. We have therefore not only initiated an intensive discourse in the newspaper "Die Presse", but also talks with the board of directors of the institute, the responsible Vice Rector, representatives of the Ministry of Science and, most recently, with the dean of the associated faculty, Mr. Univ. Prof. Dr. Sebastian Schütze, led. We were informed about the first steps in the right direction. From the autumn semester 21/22, Dr. Reinald Franz, curator of the Glass and Ceramics Collection at the MAK, will hold a course on a relevant topic. In addition, a specialist who has not yet been named has completed his habilitation at the institute on the subject of "Vienna 1900" and will also be offering a course from the coming winter semester.
Unfortunately, our goal of creating a relevant professorship is not yet in sight, probably also because there are supposedly hardly any suitable "offspring" with a corresponding habilitation. We are staying on this topic and hope for further partial successes
