Long-Distance Creativity

In a first-ever art phenomenon, the Viennese artist Alex Kiessling will use advanced robotic technology to simultaneously create three free-hand drawings in three different cities: Vienna, London and Berlin.

A New Brand of Luxury

A New Brand of Luxury

Not in Paris, London or Zurich; it was in the imperial splendours of Vienna’s Palais Liechtenstein that the Financial Times chose to host its annual “Business of Luxury” summit on 2-4 June. In a mirage of expensive scent, Chanel suits and flashing Rolexes, the power-brokers of the international luxury industry came to learn about the […]

Wolf Suschitzky: A Craftsman Celebrates His Centennial

Wolf Suschitzky: A Craftsman Celebrates His Centennial

“When my mother returned home with me after giving birth, my four-year-old sister’s only comment was: ‘What did we need him for?’” the gentle smile of Austrian-born photographer and filmmaker Wolf Suschitzky was captivating. “Of course, I couldn’t respond to that right away.” Born in Vienna in August 1912, Wolf Suschitzky has been living in […]

London Calling

Where do you go if you want good-looking girls in Vienna? Well, if you wanted to make the best of what there was on offer, what would you do for an evening? Passage? Platzhirsch? Scotch? Box?

Tangled up in Blue

Tangled up in Blue

Monday Jun. 16, Heldenplatz – Austria vs. Germany, Ballack had just scored in the fifty-second minute of an extremely poignant game; Austrian fans were livid, fully drenched in red and white paraphernalia, and screaming for all they’re worth. There I was, a five foot two, native New Yorker struggling to see over the 50,000 giraffe-like […]

London Culture

Excited about the tickets in our pockets for Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Globe Theatre that evening, my friend and I boarded our cheap flight to London for our Spring break. Though often known for its over-crowded streets and high prices, London is in fact a place full of culture! Our first stop was Tower […]

Strictly Forbidden

From the fig leaf added to protect the modesty of Michelangelo’s David in 1857, to the artistic pornography in the photos from Jeff Coons, from sex as an everyday commodity in ancient times to the brutal sadistic sex of Robert Mapplethorpe –  all this was in the exhibition Seduced: Sex in Art from Antiquity till […]
