Almost 30 years after the fall of the “Iron Curtain” Vienna still is described problematically as a gateway between “East” and “West”. This controversy has on the one had to do with the history of Austria. On the other hand Austria’s role as a neutral country of the “West” and receiver of Gastarbeiter in the 1960s and 1970s adds to this. Especially post-1989 Vienna was a host for artists and scholars from the neighboring countries and thereby continues this long history of cultural exchange.
