Since the start of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine all bilateral cultural activities with Russian state institutions and organizations have been temporarily suspended.

The Austrian Cultural Forum Moscow (ACF Moscow) sees itself as a cooperation partner and contact point for Austrian artists, cultural institutions and scientists for the initiation, planning and implementation of Austro-Russian cultural and scientific projects.

The ACF Moscow is subordinate to the Cultural Policy Section of the Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs.


The main tasks of the ACF Moscow are:

• Promotion of Austrian contemporary cultural practitioners in Russia;

• Contact point for Austrian institutions in the field of art & culture, science & research that would like to internationalise;

• The ACF Moscow also sees itself as a contact point for Russian institutions that show an interest in deepening their work with Austria;

• Our main topics: Bilateral theme years, digitalisation and digital humanism, environment, ecology and sustainability, and science diplomacy.

The aim is to build and maintain meaningful cultural bridges to the world. The focus is on contemporary and creative work from Austria in culture and science.
