Director's tour with Sabine Folie
Guided tour through the exhibition History Tales. Fact and Fiction in History Painting as part of the Vienna Art Week
The exhibition explores the representation of history in terms of identity and nation. How is the rise and fall of civilisations depicted? How is the hubris of humankind allegorised? And what sort of media transformations has the invention of photography and film brought about on the representations of myths, heroes, heroines, rulers and sovereigns as well as on pivotal historical events since the 19th century right through to the present day?
Sabine Folie, Director of the Art Collections of the Academy of Fine Arts and curator, will guide you through the exhibition.
Meeting point: Foyer of the Paintings Gallery
