This is where artists speak out; aesthetic stances, various branches of art and epochs are juxtaposed with the composer, painter, writer, theorist and pedagogue Arnold Schönberg. Experiences from differing schools of thought are mirrored together with a fundamental, trend-setting work which gave rise beyond its own limits to critical confrontation and which will continue to do so. Starting with the glimpses of Schönberg’s oeuvre and personality as published in commemoratives and anthologies during his lifetime, voices are united which may seem to be growing in their distance to Schönberg in a historical sense, while their subject continues to evince his topicality to this day.
