Zum jüdischen Erbe in der Wiener Architektur : der Beitrag jüdischer ArchitektInnen am Wiener Baugeschehen 1868-1938 by Ursula Prokop( )

12 editions published in 2016 in German and English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Während der Beitrag von jüdischen Künstlern und Intellektuellen am Wiener Kulturleben schon lange Eingang in die Geschichtsschreibung gefunden hat, wurde dahingegen die Tätigkeit von jüdischen ArchitektInnen kaum beachtet. Diese Studie versucht in einer chronologischen Abfolge mit bestimmten Schwerpunktsetzungen von den ersten Anfängen in der Ringstraßen-Ära bis zum?Anschluss? von 1938 einen Überblick zu geben. Neben bedeutenden Persönlichkeiten und spezifischen Gruppierungen - u. a. die Karl König-Schule oder der Kreis um Josef Frank - werden auch Bauaufgaben, wie Synagogen und Banken, aber auch die Wiener Werkbundsiedlung oder die Sozialbauten des?Roten Wien? untersucht. Ein eigenes Kapitel widmet sich der?Wiener Wohnraumkultur? an der insbesondere Frauen einen erheblichen Anteil hatten. Der letzte Abschnitt ist dem Schicksal der Vertriebenen und Ermordeten gewidmet.0
Das Architekten- und Designer-Ehepaar Jacques und Jacqueline Groag : zwei vergessene Künstler der Wiener Moderne by Ursula Prokop( )

10 editions published in 2005 in 3 languages and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manuscript is based on the results of a research project (No. 7726), carried out at the Institute for the History of Art (University of Vienna) under the direction of Professor Dr. Peter Haiko, and sponsored by the Jubilee Funds of the Austrian National Bank. The artists Jacques Groag (b. Olomouc, February 5, 1892, d. London, January 26, 1962) and his wife Jacqueline (ně Hilde Blumberger, b. Prague, April 6, 1903, d. London, January 13, 1986) belong to those representatives of the Viennese Modernists between the two World Wars who are now forgotten, due to the fact that, being Jews, they were forced to emigrate in 1938. In the early phase of his career Jacques Groag worked as an assistant and executing architect for Adolf Loos (Moller house, 1927) and Ludwig Wittgenstein (Wittgenstein house, 1928) and co-operated with the interior designers Friedl Dicker and Franz Singer (Heller tennis club house, 1928). After that, in independent practice he realized a considerable number of remarkable architectural projects in Vienna and native Moravia (now Czech Republic), among others a pair of semi-detached houses at the Werkbundsiedlung, a house for the actress Paula Wessely, a country house for the industrialist Otto Eisler, several houses for other private clients, but also industrial buildings. At this time he was regarded as one of the most important followers of Adolf Loos. He also enjoyed remarkable success as a designer of interiors, and was befriended to many Viennese artists such as the painters Sergius Pauser and Josef Dobrowsky, the sculptor Georg Ehrlich and the photographer Trude Fleischmann. His wife Jacqueline, a student of Franz Cizek and Josef Hoffmann at the Wiener Kunstgewerbeschule, between the wars was active as a designer of textiles for the Wiener Werkstt̃te and for fashion houses in Paris. After the couple's emigration to England in 1939 Jacques Groag could only find commissions as a designer of interiors and furniture, but found no opportunity to realize architectural projects. As a team, Jacques and Jacqueline made important contributions to prominent exhibitions on British design in the post-war period. Jacqueline, who outlived her husband for more than twenty years, continued her career as a successful textile designer until her late age
Rudolf Perco 1884-1942 by Ursula Prokop( )

5 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rudolf Perco, one of the most promising pupils in Otto Wagner's late period as teacher received numerous honourable mentionings and awards while still a student (1906 - 10) and so may well have expected a brilliant career. However, after World War I, he could realize only very few projects and his name became forgotten. It was only in the scope of the large scale public housing plan of Red Vienna in the 1920es, that he was given opportunities to materialize his Wagner based ideas, and to build several communal housings, of which the Engels Platz - Hof is the largest and most important. Besides, he submitted entries to a vast number of competitions, for which he designed projects, whose very personal features bring him close to Josef Plečnik. Rudolf Perco gehörte einer Architektengeneration an, die knapp vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg ins Berufsleben trat und noch kaum Zeit gefunden hatte sich zu etablieren. und soziale Kontakte zu knüpfen. Als Absolvent der Meisterklasse Otto Wagners schon während des Studiums mit Preise und Auszeichnungen veiwöhnt, konnte er sich einer Elite zugehörig wähnen, der das große Gebiet der Donaumonarchie als Betätigungsfeld offen schien. Dieses große Versprechen sollte sich jedoch, infolge der veränderten Verhältnisse der Zwischenkriegszeit nicht erfüllen, nur wenige seiner Projekte wurden realisiert und sein Name geriet in Vergessenheit. Im Vordergrund der Untersuchung stebt nicht eine akribische Auflistung aller Bauten und Entwürfe, sondern vor allem auch die Eingebundenheit der Persönlichkeit des KiInstlers Rudolf Perco in seine Zeit und sein Wiener Umfeld - von der Architekturgeschichte längst unter dem Mythos der "Wagnerschule" subsurniert. In diesem Sinn ist auch die relattiv weit zurückgreifnde Einleitung zu verstehen, die versucht die Situation der Wiener Architektur um die Jahrhundertwende zu unweißen: Von den Anfängen der in den neunziger Jahren einsetzender archekturtheoretischen Diskussion, deren konkrete Umsetzung aber erst allmählich und durchaus nicht geradlinig erfolgt, über die allmählichen Herausformung der formalen Kriterien zu einem verbindlichen Kanon der "Wagnerschule" und der damit gleichzeitig einsetzende Krise.1906 schließlich, in einer bereits von Stagnation geprägten Phase, tritt Rudolf Perco in die Akadernie in die Meisterklasse Wagners ein. Ab diesem Zeitpunkt wird
