Dom Museum WienArt, Religion, Society Hardback
Edited by Johanna Schwanberg
The newly opened Dom Museum Wien houses the historic treasures of St.
Stephen's Cathedral, avant-garde classics of the Otto Mauer collection, as well as contemporary works.
This volume commemorates the re-opening of the museum and presents fascinating items from the collections, as well as an account of the architectural re-design of the building, with text and images.
Well-known authors analyze selected historic exhibits from the Middle Ages and the Baroque period, elaborating new perspectives.
Similarly, the essays on the legendary art patron Otto Mauer open up a new understanding of his activities supporting post-war avant-garde artists.
Another part of the publication covers the architectural challenges of creating a contemporary museum within a historic context.
The multifaceted volume closes with dialogues amongst the most important mediators between art and the church.
