Exhibition “Utopias and Apocalypses. The Invention of the Future in Literature”

Online excursion through the new special exhibition in the Literature Museum of the Austrian National Library! The exhibition is dedicated to a highly relevant topic: the question of what image of the future we want to form.

The focus of the exhibition is on utopias and dark visions of the future, the machine worlds, doomsday scenarios and satirical idylls that are designed in literature. The exhibition presents them on the basis of selected manuscripts, books and objects from the holdings of the Austrian National Library, especially the literature archive.

The Austrian writer Raphaela Edelbauer will lead an online excursion through the exhibition and show her favorite objects, as well as lead a literary discussion. The language of the event is German with Ukrainian subtitles. You can join the excursion on the Facebook-page of the ACF and on our YouTube-channel for free!
