650th Anniversary of the University of Vienna
Eine opulente Schau zum Denkerzirkel als Höhepunkt im Ausstellungsreigen zum 650-Jahr-Jubiläum der Uni Wien.
Auf über 1000 Quadratmetern wird in den ehemaligen Turnräumen quasi im Bauch der Universität die Geschichte des einzigartigen interdisziplinären Denkerzirkels erzählt: seine Vorgeschichte, die eigentliche Zeit seiner Existenz von 1924 bis 1936, aber auch die Vertreibung seiner Protagonisten und deren internationale Wirkung.

The 650th Anniversary of the University of Vienna is marked with a variety of events throughout the year. The events in the anniversary year range from the New Year's Concert 2015 – the Main Building of the University of Vienna was the backdrop for a ballet shoot – to the solemn opening of the anniversary year on 12 March 2015 and the Campus Festival in June.
