It traces the path of this now internationally renowned art university from the nationalization of the conservatory in 1922 to its elevation to the status of university in 1939 and Reichshochschule in 1941, and finally to the academy in 1953. The role played by the massive political upheavals in the history of the Mozarteum's development, how intensively the educational institution was put at the service of National Socialist cultural policy, and the significance of structural, personnel and content-related continuities and discontinuities - these and many other questions are illuminated in thematic longitudinal sections and detailed portraits of directors.
