Controversial debates, profound conversations, memorable transatlantic encounters: The Austrian Cultural Forum's debates series serves as a platform for conversations between Austrian artists and intellectuals and their American counterparts. Current political, economic, and cultural topics are addressed without shying away from critical issues. The Cultural Forum, located in the heart of Manhattan, makes an important contribution to transatlantic dialogue.
In 2014, symposia, talks and lectures will be dedicated in particular to the 1914-2014 Centennial including on Vienna and the Fin de siècle, Viennese Modernity, Life in Vienna during the Great War and others.
Prominent speakers we have invited this year include Nobel laureate Eric Kandel, author Frederic Morton, the Economist's Tim Judah, Ambassador Wolfgang Petritsch, historian Oliver Rathkolb, and many more.
