"Secession" Art Nouveau - Jugendstil Tip by ruki

Art Nouveau - Jugendstil, Vienna: 55 reviews and 144 photos

 
 

It looks a little strangely with this gold roof but it is very effective art deco facade. The Vienna Secession is also known as the Union of Austrian Artists and its was formed in 1897 by a group of Austrian artists who had resigned from the Association of Austrian Artists. The museum specializes on contemporary art. Often artists change the outside of the building by adding sculptures or changing the lightening. The idea of the 'gesamtkunstwerk' and of adapting the room/museum to add to the art work presented is still alive!
