Secession Building

The unusual Secession Building was designed in Jugendstil style by Joseph Maria Olbrich, as a showcase for the Secessionist artists, including Gustav Klimt, Kolo Moser and Otto Wagner, who broke away from Vienna’s traditional art scene. The almost windowless building, with its filigree globe of entwined laurel leaves on the roof, is a squat cube with four towers. Gustav Klimt’s Beethoven Frieze (1902) is its best known exhibit. Designed as a decorative painting running along three walls, it shows interrelated groups of figures thought to be a commentary on Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The Secession Building is Vienna’s oldest independent exhibition space dedicated to showing contemporary and experimental Austrian and international art.
