1951 – 2022

A digital archive is also being published to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Wiener Festwochen in 2021. First up are the programme books from 1951 to 2021, with insights into the productions, projects, themes, and focal points of the past 70 years. The archive is set to grow over the coming years, making the eventful history of the festival all the more tangible.
As part of an initial approach to the subject matter, cultural scientist Aleida Assmann and theatre scholar Theresa Eisele have chosen to examine, in two essays, the relevance of the archive for the performing arts and the history of the Wiener Festwochen.
