Political Theater in Exile

The exil.arte Center expanded on 21.05.2019 its exhibition “When I compose, I’m back in Vienna” with a portrayal of the life and work of Erwin Piscator and Maria Ley Piscator under the title “Political Theater in Exile”.
This expansion is part of The Lahr of Leitis Academy & Archive, which was recently acquired by the exil.arte center.

The exhibition shows Piscator’s significant influence on the development of the theater on both sides of the Atlantic. Piscator firmly believed that “art only serves its purpose if it contributes to human improvement.”

The exhibtion is open daily (Tuesday – Saturday from 3 pm to 7pm)
