07/2021

"70 Years of Austrian Housing Culture" is the title of the anniversary film in which BUWOG takes a look back at its many years of activity as a property developer. wesearch searched for historical footage in Viennese photo and film archives and found what it was looking for: the development of precisely thought-out and at the same time affordable apartments can be easily traced, especially in the interior shots from different decades.

Nazi-perpetrators look at you

05/2021

Our latest research project funded by the City of Vienna deals with a photographic exhibition that has been forgotten until now. Two years after the end of World War II, an exhibition comprising over 2000 (!) photographs with portraits of Nazi criminals was shown in Vienna's Messepalast. In this show, survivors of the Mauthausen concentration camp were asked to identify SS- guards of the Mauthausen concentration camp. Details about this extraordinary photo exhibition are hitherto completely unknown
