Das Junge Wien – Orte und Spielräume der Wiener Moderne
[Young Vienna: Places and Spaces of Viennese Modernism]
Ed. by Hemecker, Wilhelm / Mitterer, Cornelius / Österle, David
Aims and Scope
The literary circle known as Young Vienna, usually taken to include Hermann Bahr, Arthur Schnitzler, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Richard Beer-Hofmann, and Felix Salten, but also Karl Kraus, drew much of its productive force from an engagement with spaces and places. This volume discusses coffee houses and theaters, the Prater and summer retreats, cinema and sound spaces all the way to Arnold Schönberg.
