Exhibition view in the Literaturmuseum: a woman and a man looking at an exhibition showcase

Utopias and Apocalypses

What does literature tell us about the future? How does it invent possible worlds? How do writers of Austrian and international literature of the 20th and 21st centuries imagine very different futures?

In the light of the current debates on climate change, digitisation, robotics and artificial intelligence, the new special exhibition in the Literature Museum of the Austrian National Library is dedicated to a highly topical issue, the question of what image we want to make of the future. The focus is on the utopias and dark visions of the future, the machine worlds, doomsday scenarios and satirical idylls that literature invents. The exhibition presents them using selected manuscripts, books and objects from the collections of the Austrian National Library, in particular the Literary Archive.
