Exhibitions, Archive (1997)
The Neue Galerie is presenting the first exhibition of the artist and author Claude Cahun (1894-1954) whose oeuvre has been suppressed and forgotten in art history but which must be reassessed against the background of the ongoing "gender discussion".

Portrait of an epoch from styrian collections
Parallel to the art show "Egon Schiele - The Leopold Collection" of the Neue Galerie, the exhibition "In the Midsummer of Art" presents the environment of this outstanding painter at the turn of the century.
It seems that Austria and Hungary are condemned to be an arena of fond illusions, interchangeable clichés and slightly unsavoury conceptions of history in the service of some reactionary ideologies. This exhibition is opposing these distorting anecdotes, appropriations and obscure curiosa by showing the unknown reality of the common cultural and intellectual history of Austria and Hungary with a range of selected examples.
