The Secession Museum


In 1897 a number of artists broke their ties with Künstlerhaus, the association and gallery of Vienna's art establishment which they considered intolerably conservative, seceded and formed a new art association with the name of Secession and the motto, "To the Age, its Art. To Art, its Freedom."

In 1897/98, on the plot of land provided by the city administration, Joseph Olbrich built an exhibition building for the association in the Art Nouveau style, which is considered one of the most important edifices in Vienna nowadays. The leafwork dome ("golden cabbage") is the symbol of the Secession and visible from afar.

On permanent display in the basement is the 34 meter-long "Beethoven Frieze", created by Gustav Klimt for the Beethoven exhibition in 1902; a virtuoso, picturesque interpretation of Beethoven's 9th Symphony. Changing exhibitions of contemporary artists are shown on the levels above.
