Book presentation Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky. Architecture. Politics. Gender.

The Austrian Cultural Forum in New York (ACFNY) recently hosted an important book presentation.

The work in question constitutes the first extensive publication about Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky's life and work in the englisch language; edited by Dr. Bernadette Reinhold and Dr. Marcel Bois.

Now, the book was introduced in the United States in the form of an event, which included a panel discussion with the two editors. Said discussion was moderated by Dr. Stephanie Buhmann, Head of Visual Arts, Architecture and Design at the ACFNY.

On October 2 2023, the first presentation of the work took place at the Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky Centre in Vienna. The original german edition was published in 2019.
