How Elegant Vienna Became An Explosion Of Modernism

A much-romanticised era for the city, these years are commonly celebrated as a period of explosive artistic, literary, intellectual and especially musical modernisation in which resolutely iconoclastic geniuses such as Schoenberg, Sigmund Freud, Gustav Klimt and Alfred Schnitzler broke with the past in order to lay the groundwork for the future. In this narrative, Vienna’s musical revolution was especially radical: Schoenberg’s Pierrot was later characterised by Igor Stravinsky as ‘the solar-pl...

A New Era for Measuring Communications Campaigns

We all know it’s important to measure our PR campaigns. However, according to Muck Rack’s 2020 “State of PR Survey,” 64 percent of PR pros still struggle with quantifiable measurement — a 1 percent improvement from last year’s findings. Since 66 percent of pros say that measurable results are one of the top ways to increase the value of public relations within an organization, measurement is truly one of the best opportunities to up our game and show how our discipline contributes to busines...

Construction of Austrian Holocaust victims' memorial begins

Construction of Austria's first public monument naming all the country's Holocaust victims began on Monday, a further step by Adolf Hitler's native land towards confronting an issue it has long struggled with. For decades after World War Two, Austria denied responsibility for crimes committed by the Nazis, arguing that it was their first victim despite the enthusiasm with which many citizens had welcomed annexation by Hitler's Germany in 1938. Vienna had none.
