16 May1 Nov 2005. The New Austria is an exhibition at the Belvedere Gallery, a baroque tour-de-force enclosed by formal gardens. In the same building on 15 May 1955, foreign ministers of Austria and the four victorious powers France, UK, the Soviet Union and USA signed the Austrian State Treaty, by which Austria formally regained independence. New Austria follows the historical and artistic developments in 20th-century Austria: from the demise of the Austro-Hungarian empire to the troubled inter-war years, from world war two and occupation to the forming of a new and democratic Austria. The show focuses on the years of Allied occupation from 1945 to 1955 and the signing of the Austrian State Treaty on 15 May 1955. Admission: 1.50-15; under 10s free. Tues-Sun 10.00-18.00 (until 21.00 Thurs)
