Abstract

Kreuzenstein Castle was built between 1874 and 1906 on the ruins of a medieval fortress. It was conceived as a family mausoleum and venue for preserving and displaying the owner’s collection of medieval art, but it can also be interpreted as the idealized vision of a medieval castle from the perspective of the 19th century. This study clarifies to what extent our view of the medieval castle is contingent on the faults, fractures and “constructs” of modernity.

Abstract

The study analyses Cold War discourses in Austrian post-war literature, a subject that so far has been neglected in Austrian literary history. Through extensive research, 50 mainly unknown or little acknowledged novels, stories, plays and scenes were discovered which discuss phenomena of the Cold War that defined the first post-war decades. The theoretical focus on New Historicism allows an analysis of a broad spectrum of thematic clusters, images, discursive constellations and narratives which are contextualised both in national and international Cold War discourse./ In 15 chapters, the study discusses the discursive patterns of more than 50 rather unknown books from Austrian literature from the period 1945 to 1966, such as constructions and imaginations of borders, fictive travels behind the Iron Curtain, the Gulag, and metaphors of disease and narratives of espionage. These discourse patterns are positioned within the context of the Cold War.

Abstract

This publication documents the life and work of the architect Rolf Geyling (1884-1952), who was a former student of Otto Wagner and started his career in Vienna and Bucharest before the First World War broke out. During the war Geyling documented his experiences as an officer of the Habsburger Monarchy with photographs and a detailed diary, which he continued during his imprisonment in Siberia. After five years in several camps - most recently in Vladivostok - Geyling fled to Tianjin in China, where he successfully established himself as an architect until the period of Mao Tse-tung and was particularly involved in the development of modern architecture in northern China.
