Österreichisches Kulturforum (spelling: austria kultur int ) is the collective name of several cultural institutes in various cities around the world, which are operated as a subsidiary of the Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs (BMEIA). Their task is the cultural and scientific dialogue with artists and scientists from the respective host country. The respective leaders have diplomatic status.

A cultural forum is geared towards the specific requirements of the respective local users and partners and works independently in terms of content. The Kulturforum positions Austria as a modern and cosmopolitan cultural nation. The international network of Austrian culture abroad currently consists of 29 cultural forums in 27 countries.

Austrian foreign cultural policy

Principles of Austrian foreign cultural policy:

  • Austrian foreign cultural policy is active and formative. The "Foreign Culture ConceptNEU" has been in effect since 2001, in which the tasks and goals of foreign cultural policy are formulated. Since the culture of Austria offers the chance of worldwide awareness, international moments of attention should be created for Austria through cultural activities.
  • The goals of Austrian foreign cultural policy are therefore:
    • The location Austria in Europe should be made understandable and perceptible through cultural means.
    • The international activities in the field of art, culture and science must be supplemented by educational projects, because the future European knowledge area depends on the success of European educational ideas.
    • Commitment to a Europe of diversity is intended to counteract excessive identity politics, because, as Stefan Zweig already formulated, Austria allows both a patriot and a global citizen.

In addition, the goals of Austrian foreign cultural policy are determined by the following tasks:

  • Austria wants to contribute to Europe becoming more cultural, because Europe's strengths also lie in its cultural diversity.
  • Our neighbors should be won as allies in realizing the opportunities of the cultural area of ​​Central Europe.
  • Southeast Europe should be fully integrated into the cultural dialogue of Europe so that the strengthening of civil society in these countries facilitates stabilization.
  • The dialogue between cultures and civilizations is to be strengthened in concrete terms, because Austria has had historical experience with the clash of languages ​​and cultures and with totalitarian ideologies.
