Letters to the Editor: Dec. 2013

To the Editor I was interested to read Kurt Bayer’s article on banking transparency in the October edition (“Kurt Bayer: Fighting for Economic Fairness”, Kaffeehaus, TVR, October 2013). However please note that the Channel Islands are not part of the United Kingdom, the EU or the European Economic Area, and as such are not bound […]

Letters to the Editor: Dec. 2012/Jan. 2013

To the Editor In response to your article “A Mother Fights for Custody” [TVR November 2012], relating to the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the custodial rights of the parents of Oliver Sorensen/Weilharter, I would not suggest that I have any “sided” opinion about what is clearly a very complex issue. However it is a shame that […]

Toasting the Diplomat Musicians

Toasting the Diplomat Musicians

Ambassador John McGregor’s exquisite piano playing echoes in my mind as we pass the Karlskirche to the French Embassy on Schwarzenbergplatz. We’ve just been to the annual “Ambassadors in Concert” at the Musikverein and, as we stroll along, my friend and I hotly debate the varied skills of diplomats and friends on the programme, among […]

Weißgerberviertel: Strolling Through the Centuries

Weißgerberviertel: Strolling Through the Centuries

Urban waterfronts are hard to find in Vienna. The Kaisermühlen section of the 22nd District immediately springs to mind, but it’s the downtown Weißgerberviertel that boasts a richer (even violent) history, hundreds of years worth of buildings and pockets of interesting storefronts that just can’t be found in the outer districts. The No. 1 tram […]

At the Easel With Gustav Klimt

At the Easel With Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt had a big year. Nearly a dozen Viennese museums have featured some sort of 150th anniversary exhibit in honour of the artist, whose photographs remind you of Bacchus with a smock and paintbrush. It’s easy to see why Klimt’s work (especially The Kiss) is so heavily promoted: it’s accessible enough for the average […]

Book Review: Being Freud’s Double

Book Review: Being Freud’s Double

Father of the interior monologue, Arthur Schnitzler was also a pioneer in early writing for film A man leaves his hotel at 3:00, says to the porter: “Do not wake up the lady; I’ll be back in a few hours.” The porter, initially sleepy, becomes suspicious. He goes upstairs, knocks at the door. Complete silence. […]

Treasure Hunting on Kirchengasse: For the Eclectic Urbanite

Treasure Hunting on Kirchengasse: For the Eclectic Urbanite

When you turn onto Kirchengasse from the commercial droves of Mariahilferstraße, Café Mentone marks the cultural shift. Now partially closed to traffic, Kirchengasse features a transitional mix of small, traditional stores – a porcelain shop like a trip back in time, a crowded electronics place with shelves piled high, a uniform supplier – and newer […]

An American Night: New Plays from the U.S.A.

An American Night: New Plays from the U.S.A.

On 18 January, the stage of the Schauspielhaus Wien is in American hands: In cooperation with Washington D.C.-based director Gillian Drake, the theatre presents four plays by contemporary, young American authors. In addition to Ayad Akhtar’s Disgraced, Annie Baker’s The Aliens and Jordan Harrison’s Maple and Vine, read in excerpts, Amy Herzog’s new play 4000 […]
