At the suggestion of President Sylvia Liska and of Alexander Kahane, the Executive Board of the “Friends of the Secession” has decided to donate a complete set of 20 works from the Jahresgaben 1986 – 2006 to the Academy’s Graphic Collection, both as a historical documentation and for study purposes.

Since 1986, the Friends of the Secession, usually with artists exhibiting at the Secession, have been producing Jahresgaben in limited edition.

The works were mostly created by artists who had exhibited their art at the Secession, which thus provides us with an insight into the last 20 years of exhibition history there. They comprise both Austrian and international works in various graphic reproduction media or photography, some of which are also closely linked to the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna.
