Nice video ‘Klimt 2012. A kiss changes the world’ highlighting Klimt and Austrian Modernism:
The architecture and images of Austrian Modernism can be seen by just taking the train (have a look at the S Bahn stations) or walking through many of Vienna’s districts. There are also excellent exhibitions at museums in the city, particularly as it would have been Klimt’s 150 birthday this year. Yet more reasons to spend time in Vienna 🙂
You can’t spend time in Vienna without rubbing shoulders with the influence of Gustav Klimt and other members of the Vienna Secession movement. With 2012 being the 150th anniversary of Klimt’s birth the city will see even more exhibitions and events highlighting his work and that of his contemporaries.
In the meantime the Belvedere is kicking things off with a special exhibitions the work of Klimt and Josef Hoffmann. Another reason, if you needed one, to visit Vienna 🙂
