Abstract

This volume is the second part of a trilogy on a detailed history of Vienna. It covers the period from the First Turkish Siege (1529) to the death of the Emperor Joseph II (1790). During these centuries the Habsburg dynasty and the court had been shaping predominantly the development of the city and the cultural townscape. In a detailed description fifteen authors give an overall view of the history of the constitution and administration, of the environmental, social, economic, and cultural development. Attention has been mainly focused on an analysis of the structural changes of the city's economy in the early modern period and the structure of the society, especially stressing its consequences in daily life. This historical description is based in many respects on the latest results of recent research. This volume provides the first concise history of Vienna between the 16th and 18th centuries in the last fifty years. It imparts the latest state of research to a wide public, supported by many illustrations and a large bibliography.

Abstract

This volume is the last and final part of a trilogy on a detailed history of Vienna. It covers the period from 1790 until the present times. For the decisive forces as well as the inhabitants of the city this era of the urban development of Vienna has to be counted among the most dramatic periods characterised by a great number of real breaks in history. Napoleonic occupation, the revolution of 1848, the constitutional as well as the economic and social changes from the middle of the 19th century onwards, the final end of the position as "Reichshaupt- und Residenzstadt" (capital and residential city of the Austro-Hungarian empire) at the end of World War I, the challenging and complicated inter-war-period, Vienna's fate under Nazi-domination, the air raid of World War II and its end as well as the years after 1945 so far never described in such a comprehensive manner - all these events establish the chronological screen for the description and mark decisive incidents being treated here. In a chronological framework six authors arrange a pattern of Vienna's political, social, economic and cultural history. An innovative step is marked by the attempt to give a description of the ever so decisive periods like the "Fin-de-Siècle" and the complicated years after 1918 considering the intellectual mainstream and including men of letters and their works as contemporary witnesses and references. Vienna's development after 1945 - regarding the political history until the elections of 2001, the social and economic history in some aspects even furthermore - has not been treated in such a profound manner so far.This volume - as its predecessors - imparts the latest state of research to a wide public, supported by many illustrations and a large bibliography as well as a useful register of place names and persons.

Abstract

The relationship between the intellectual development of the young Georg Lukacs and the culture of Vienna around the turn of the century was investigated in the research project: Georg Lukacs and Vienna. Because of this the main point of interest was to investigate aspects of his work which stand in relation to Vienna around 1900.First of all the results of previous research about the theme 'Lukacs and Vienna' were held onto. After this, the methodical procedure from cultural studies about the turn of the century, which are treated as the standard works in this field, we re sketched out and the methods for contemporary works were laid down. The relevant biographical facts were laid out in two chapters about his life and his education - with special attention being paid to the question of his introduction to the problems of contemporary Austrian philosophy. The effect of Rudolf Kassner on Lukacs thoughts around 1910 seems to be very important. Lukacs' literature critical texts on modern Austrian drama especially the literature of Arthur Schnitzler and Richard Beer-Hofmann play a central role. The theories, which are developed in these texts, were made more precise in a discussion with Mihaly Babits as well as in the text: Aesthetic Culture. Following this Lukacs' aesthetical Heidelberg writings, which are relevant to the investigation of this project, were analyzed. The insight into the theories, which show up in Lukacs' texts, which was won in the research project through the aforementioned writings was then deepened with consideration to the Jewish Question as well as with an analysis of the concepts of liberalism, culture, and the Modern. At the same time Lukacs' activities were placed in the context of Central Europe. In addition the question was answered: what meaning did the relationship between Lukacs and Vienna have for his later development.The result of the project is that insight into Georg Lukacs must be viewed in the context of modernity and Central Europe, in order to understand his activity and, in a very concrete way, in order to understand his individual texts. If one doesn't take his contradictory relationship to Vienna around 1900 and to the Modern and Central Europe into account he remains a confused solitary person. Afurther and perhaps even more important result is: When one places Lukacs in the relation of these aforementioned intellectual-historical appearances, these appearances themselves win on dimensions, which first make their understanding possible.

Abstract

Based on information about more than 600 Viennese Jewish officials, the book examines issues related to the self-characterization and outside characterization of Jews in Vienna. Sports are an important part of urban identity politics, providing a multifaceted image of engagement with Jewish “difference.” The study focuses on mass consumption sports, especially football, but includes swimming, boxing, and workers’ sports.

Abstract

The present book about Vienna is volume 4 of an encyclopedic reference work that, as the result of basic research in literary studies, represents the first systematic attempt towards a comprehensive documentation of the literary life of Austria during the Nazi era. From its methodological approach, it is intended to make the literary events that took place within the official system of the Third Reich as promoted, or at least tolerated, by the decision-makers in the cultural industry more accessible, without resorting to limiting, biased attempts to define a canon.

Abstract

When Cruise , the film whose dialogue I used as an epigraph for this chapter, was&#xD;released in 1970, these words were seen as capturing Polish inability to move&#xD;beyond the safe zone of a well-known repertoire of images, melodies and symbols.&#xD;Austrians allegedly are also stuck in the past (see Chapter 1 ). This would&#xD;explain Kruder and Dorfmeister’s penchant for making capital from our pleasure&#xD;of listening to melodies we already know, if not for the fact that they gained fame&#xD;not from capitalising on Vienna’s music history but remixing songs coming from&#xD;the Anglo-American centre of popular music, such as those by Depeche Mode,&#xD;Madonna and David Holmes. Theirs is thus an interesting case of colonisation,&#xD;which includes self-colonisation and reverse colonisation: taking something from&#xD;the centre, reworking it and returning to the centre an improved version. Depending&#xD;on the perspective, their productions can be seen as proof of the hegemony of&#xD;the centre or a sign that the periphery can not only resist the centre’s power but&#xD;also penetrate it on its own terms. Equally, they can be seen as a sign of the end of&#xD;authenticity and originality in popular music (and art at large) in the postmodern&#xD;era or a need to rework these concepts to fit the art of creative recycling.&#xD;

Abstract

A large proportion of artists considered in this study at some stage of their career&#xD;veered towards ‘serious’ or experimental music. This also refers to Peter Rehberg&#xD;and Christian Fennesz. However, they differ from those considered previously,&#xD;because unlike them, they did not cross the boundary between the popular and&#xD;academic now and then but made it their personal signature. Their music also&#xD;challenges our concept of electronic music, as well as studio and stage and even&#xD;music and non-music. To contextualise their work, it is worth locating it first&#xD;against the concept of ‘noise music’ or rather ‘noise as music’.
