Book presentation: Werner Rosenberger “Hinter fremden Fahnen. Geschichten aus Botschaften und Residenzen”

Wednesday, December 14th | Museum Dorotheergasse, Dorotheergasse 11, A-1010 Wien

Behind closed doors in embassies and residences: The places where diplomats are now active today were once places that personalities who shaped Austria politically, economically and culturally called home. Their Viennese palaces and magnificent mansions are still reminiscent of a time when princes like Rasumofsky and Metternich, dazzling female figures like the “last Bonaparte,” opera stars like the Jewish woman Selma Kurz, the Jewish banker Alfons Thorsch, architects such as Otto Wagner or an international drug dealer and philanthropic countesses enjoyed their privileged existences. Until representatives from all over the world, from China to Morocco, from Norway to Korea, took over their representative ambiances. Werner Rosenberger offers an exciting and surprising journey through the world of yesterday.
Werner Rosenberger, born in Kapfenberg, lives in Vienna. As a journalist, he has written for “GEO,” “profil,” “Trend” and “Diners Club Magazin,” has been the culture editor at “KURIER” since 1994 and is the author of numerous travel reports.
