The exhibition showcased in German and English was displayed in Belgrade as well as in Berlin in early 2023 before coming to Paris in early September.


About the Exhibition

The Vienna Circle is a group of physicists, mathematicians, and philosophers, who founded one of the most influential schools of thought of the 20th century, between the wars in Vienna. Gathered around the philosopher Moritz Schlick, this constellation of intellectuals, scholars, and scientists had significant influence on the construction of mathematical logic, study and method, scientific analysis, information technology and contemporary engineering sciences.


The exhibition illustrates the history and key contributions of this circle of learned sociability. It traces the destinies of its protagonists, who fell victim to the ravages of rising populism and anti-Semitic persecution that struck "Red Vienna" in the 1930s.
