The Neue Galerie presents a major retrospective devoted to the Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna Workshops), an artists’ and craftsmens’ collective that existed in Vienna from 1903 until 1932. More than 400 objects have been selected for the exhibition, with loans drawn from both public and private international collections. This show surveys the entirety of the firm’s extensive output in a variety of media, including ceramics, drawings, fashion, furniture, glass, graphic design, jewellery, metalwork, textiles, and wallpaper. Highlights of the show will include important examples of furniture by Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser, which will be complemented by rare and often unique works crafted in silver, gold, and semiprecious stones that convey the Wiener Werkstätte’s luxurious aesthetic. Find out more about the Weiner Werkstätte exhibition from the Neue Galerie’s website.
