The Salon on Agripas Street is an art exhibit by members of the Agripas 12 cooperative gallery, to celebrate the book Vienna-1900 published in 2019 and edited by Rina Peled and Sharon Gordon.

The book, Vienna-1900 is essentially a retrospective of the Viennese experience at the turn of the nineteenth century. Many of the essays included in this volume relate to the cultural, artistic, and social aspects of Vienna at the turn of the century: the architecture; the Viennese Workshop where the best artists of the period created, such as Gustav Klimt, Josef Hoffman, and Otto Wagner; the music of Gustav Mahler; the Freudian psychoanalysis; the Viennese film heritage; the coffee shop; the Viennese cuisine; the salonnière; the “Sweet Girl”, and more.

Aside the academic events dedicated to the book, Agripas 12 is holding a special art exhibit, turning the gallery in salon of sorts, in which each one of the artists shows a contemporary work that engages in a dialogue with Vienna at the turn of the nineteenth century. The works cover a broad range of media: painting, sculpture, installation, performance, photography and jewelry.

Turn of the century Vienna represented an open world, where you did not need a passport in order to move from one place to another, a world of literary coffee shops that gave rise to some of the most important movements and fashions of the period; a world of concert halls open to the wider public; of urban parks where one could wander around peacefully. A world that evokes a deep yearning in us.

And especially in these days, in which virtual networks have replaced the actual reality, it is difficult not to long for the days in which unmediated encounters between people were held. And the yearning is double: both for “The Age of Conversation” – one of the common epithets of Vienna 1900 – but also for the days before the closure due to the epidemic, which has brought about “The Age of Solitariness”, in which everyone is hidden in their own house, without physical contact with the real world.
