Exhibit: Goldscheider – A World Brand from Vienna: Commerce and Art in an Age of Transformation

This exhibit features decorative ceramics by the legendary Goldscheider Manufactory focusing on the beauty of the 1920’s Art Deco Woman. The objects are presented within the post-1848 historical context of Vienna, a time marked by the decline of the Habsburg monarchy and profound innovations in the arts, the sciences, industry and commerce.

Exhibition – Publishing in Exile: German-Language Literature in the U.S. in the 1940s

Authors who fled Germany and France following the rise of National Socialism often found themselves stranded abroad without publishers, writing in a language foreign to their host countries. The exhibit “Publishing in Exile” brings together for the first time literary works published by these German-speaking exile publishers in the United States during the Third Reich.
