Abstract

Abstract:

Th is article investigates the history, tradition, and social relevance of Vienna's Ringstrasse on its 150th anniversary. It examines the complex provenance and development of this modern urban city project, arguing that it espouses museality as an inherent trait. As such, this paper pays special attention to the two museums that were constructed as part of the original Ringstrasse project and that continue to exist to this day, highlighting the anniversary exhibits organized by Vienna's Kunsthistorisches and Naturhistorisches Museums.
