1918. As the roar of the First World War cannons is dying out, in Vienna, the heart of Central Europe, a golden age comes to an end. This Exhibition On Screen delves into the turn-of-the-century Vienna artworld and includes tours through exhibitions of Klimt and Schiele’s works. Today the masterpieces of these two artists attract visitors from all over the world, in Vienna as well as at the Neue Galerie in New York, but there are also pop images that accompany our daily life on posters, postcards and calendars. Inspired by some of the many exhibitions that are about to open on the occasion of the centenary, the film guides us through the halls of Albertina, Belvedere, Kunsthistorisches, Leopold, Freud and Wien Museum, retracing this extraordinary season: a magical moment for art, literature and music, in which new ideas are circulated, Freud discovers the drives of the psyche, and women begin to claim their independence. An age that revealed the abysses of the ego, in which today we’re still reflecting ourselves.
