ACADEMY SECOND MODERNISM
Global womxn composers platform

Vienna is considered the capital of Modernism. However, the great artistic and philosophical upheaval around Schönberg, Freud and Klimt was incomplete: it was euro-centric, male and elitist. Under the patronage of Nuria Schoenberg Nono, the Academy Second Modernism therefore seeks to globalise Modernism, render it female and take it into our time as a Second Modernism. Each year over a period of five years, the Academy Second Modernism is inviting ten womxn composers to Vienna every year to represent each of Arnold Schoenberg’s fifty female students of composition who were forgotten and never heard. As ambassadors of a globalised modernism, they present their works and develop strategies for visibility together with local and international initiators.
The Academy Second Modernism aims to bring theatres, opera houses, festivals, concert houses and ensembles to commit themselves to significantly raise the percentage of works by womxn composers in their programme. For even after over a century of Modernism, the proportion of their works performed by orchestras worldwide is still only 7.7%.
