Arts and Correalities

Auditorium, University of Applied Arts Vienna
Vordere Zollamtsstraße 7, 1030 Vienna

One-day symposium in collaboration with the University of Applied Arts Vienna, marking the 25th anniversary of the Frederick Kiesler Foundation based in Vienna.

In the 1930s, Frederick Kiesler (1890-1965) developed the theory of Correalism as a transdisciplinary research method in architecture and design. It was based on the latest findings of systems theory, biology and the technical sciences and has called for the combination of empirical scientific research, holistic human-centred design and the practical testing of emergent knowledge.

Our thoughts are with the people of Chernivtsi, Kyiv and all of Ukraine.
Frederick Kiesler was born in Czernowitz/Chernivtsi in 1890. Today the city is part of the Ukraine. On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Kiesler’s death in 2015, a commemorative plaque was placed on the house in the former Karolinengasse 5, where Kiesler spent his childhood.
We have fond memories of a symposium that we held together with KNUCA (Kyiv National University of Construction and Architecture) on the occasion of the Austria-Ukraine cultural year in November 2019 under the title “Ukraine Tomorrow. Frederick Kiesler’s Visionary Correalism as Impulse for Architecture, Art and Society”.
We are therefore closely linked to Ukraine. We are looking at Ukraine with deep concern and are observing developments. And we hope that this senseless war will end soon.
