General Information

exil.arte - the Austrian coordination point for displaced, ostracised and murdered musicians and composers - has the goal of promoting awareness of the diversity of the cultural heritage of the exiled and ostracised through concerts, symposiums, and academic publications. 


The association functions as a contact point for the reception, research, and preservation of the works of Austrian composers, interpreters, and music researchers that were dubbed as “degenerate” under the Third Reich. the historical reappraisal of this vast cultural heritage represented by the traditions of the 19th century, operetta, film-chansons, cabaret, the second Viennese School, jugendstil, Neue Sachlichkeit, and much more, is an enormous undertaking and can only be achieved through inter- and multidisciplinary support.
