Together with partner institutions throughout Vienna, we offer you the opportunity to visit other museums with our circle of friends! This time we have organised a guided tour through the current exhibition at the Jewish Museum Vienna:

Who Cares? Jewish Responses to Suffering

Tue, 19 March 2024, 16:30 with free admission
Jewish Museum Vienna, Dorotheergasse 11, 1010 Vienna


Violence, illness, poverty, depression: suffering affects everyone and makes them dependent on others. Who cares for whom and who is excluded from receiving aid? The principles of tikun olam (heal the world) and zedakah (charity) form the foundation of the exhibition. It explores the medical, psychological, and social welfare programs established in Vienna, with particular focus on the people behind these initiatives. The achievements of prominent male and female Viennese Jewish doctors are juxtaposed with the long-neglected stories of mothers, midwives, nurses, and social workers. Although the Nazi regime destroyed pivotal infrastructure, care was still provided. In light of war, terror, and the climate catastrophe, the question “Who cares?” gains heightened importance. Empathy and solidarity remain, now more than ever, vital for peaceful coexistence.


Exclusively for our circle of friends

Preview of the new special exhibition

"THE UNCANNY. Sigmund Freud and Art"

Thu, 25 April 2024, 18:00 with free admission
Start of the public vernissage: 19:00
Sigmund Freud Museum, Berggasse 19, 1090 Vienna


The special exhibition at the Sigmund Freud Museum focuses on the uncanny - on the emotion that once aroused Freud's interest and has been elevated to the status of a pictorial object in art from the beginnings. In a variety of media, works by Louise Bourgeois, Heidi Bucher, Gregory Crewdson, Birgit Jürgenssen, Helmut Newton, Hans Op de Beeck, Stephanie Pflaum (at the Showroom Berggasse 19), Markus Schinwald, Esther Shalev-Gerz, Cindy Sherman, Jeff Wall, Kay Walkowiak and Francesca Woodman illustrate the current and reciprocal influence of psychoanalysis and art.

Just as this specific feeling of anxiety - not least in view of the current world situation - penetrates to the surface of human consciousness, it is also reflected in contemporary art.
