The façade of the Viennese Secession is graced by the following programmatic words: To every time its art. To art its freedom. Following this theme, the exhibition space that was built in the unique architectural tradition around 1900 is realising a diverse international programme aiming to present contemporary forms of expression. There is a wonderful, constant dialogue between the Secession as a space and the art that is shown. Although more than a century old, the architecture is still young in functionality and timeless elegance. Naturally the contrasts that can be created by displaying contemporary works are stimulating and thoughtful. But the building itself is also a source of inspiration, both for visitors and especially for artists. Apart from the main room, there is a further space on the upper floor and three more rooms in the downstairs gallery. In that way, the building demands the exhibiting artist’s individual interpretation, making each show a different experience.
