At is heart, Vienna is city of palaces and gardens, museums, music and tradition. For more than 400 years it was the jewel in the glittering imperial crown of the Habsburgs.
However, there is also another side to Vienna - one that is less well-known and less visited. The Wiener Moderne refers to a short cultural era around the end of the 19th and start of the 20th centuries that saw an astonishing period of creativity in Vienna's art, design, architecture and other fields, bringing forth such names as Klimt, Schiele, Loos, Wagner, Hoffmann and many more.
In this episode, art historian Christopher Menz introduces us to this piece of Modernism in Vienna today.
