June 1st – 3rd 2023, Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, Bassanosaal.

Welcome to the pages of the
International Research Group “Egypt & Austria”!

The purpose of the project Egypt and Austria is to investigate the relationship between Central Europe and Egypt in the period mainly between 1815 and 1918. Egypt has been chosen as a representative of the Orient and any comparisons with other “Orients” are welcome. Austria stands for a multinational region, once united under the Hapsburg Monarchy.
