Austrian Social and Economic Museum, visiting card, c.1956

Visiting card, Österreichische Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftsmuseum, c.1956. (Otto and Marie Neurath Isotype Collection, University of Reading)

The Austrian Social and Economic Museum was re-established around 1949 under director Franz Rauscher. On this visiting card it is presented as a direct continuation of the inter-war museum founded by Otto Neurath, and of the ‘Vienna Method of Pictorial Statistics’. The reformed museum initially had no permanent exhibition space and was housed in temporary offices, as can be seen from the overprinted change of address here. (Both of these initial addresses were very close to the offices & workshops of the previous Museum at Ullmanstrasse, in Vienna’s fifteenth district.)
