AD Karl was interviewed by the Guardian about Sarajewo. Though the article focusses for a large part on European integration, it makes an interesting read:

Archduke Karl spoke earlier tonight at the Commonwealth Club about his work preserving cultural heritage sites and artifacts. Here are some photos I took of the event in San Francisco.

On April 6th the newspaper Kurier published an interview with Archduke Karl. He says that there is not one guilty party for the First World War.

Karl Habsburg: "Es gibt keinen Alleinschuldigen am Ersten Weltkrieg" - KURIER.at

Although that has been the consensus among historians for a while, recent publications in that field tend to lie more and more blame with the Serbian government, who sacrificed the peace in Europe for nationalistic reasons. Only this time what was supposed to be a 4th Balkan war escalatred into a world war (see among others 'World War One. The Global Revolution by Lawrence Sondhaus, 2011).

The article however focusses on the guilt - or innocence- of the Emperor Franz Joseph in this matter.

The archduke also recalls that his grandmother Empress Zita still shared some memories of the war, his father only remembered parts of the final years.

Archduchess Francesca interviews designer and architect Neri Oxman:



Neri Oxman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sleek magazine published an interview with the archduchess online:

Quote:
Francesca von Habsburg is a fourth-generation art collector and since 2002, chairman of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21), which she founded in Vienna, and whose tenth anniversary celebration was the highlight of the city’s Art Week last November. While organising the upcoming exhibition at TBA21 with Chief Curator Daniela Zyman, she spoke to Sleek about a decade of collecting, commissioning and figuratively “getting into bed” with artists…

Archduchess Fransesca features in a documentary by ORF;



Fransesca's part starts after 20 minutes and is conducted in English. She speaks among other things about her father, raising her children and what the name Habsburg means to her.

Earlier in the programme there is an interview with Prince Karl von Schwarzenberg.

Archduchess Francesca attended a ball in Vienna on Feb. 8th:

And at another ball in September 2014: photo.

And an article & photo from Vogue Italy, dated September 2014:

Quote:
Grand seems to be the adjective that best describes her, both for her lofty objectives as a philanthropist as well as for the dimensions of her past. The archduchess Francesca von Habsburg knows no moderation and seems to lead her substantial existence under the banner of a success that, although inherited, has been strengthened largely thanks to her original choices. She is the daughter of Baron Hans Heinrich von Thyssen-Bornemisza, who was considered one of the most important art collectors in the world – his collection in Europe was second only to that of the Queen of England – and of the model Fiona Campbell-Walter. Ever since she was a child, she has dedicated herself to art and to anticonformist choices. “Anyone who wants to experience something new must abandon preconceived notions and have a bit of courage,” she affirms. And she has had quite a load of courage, considering that one of her objectives has been to make a clean break from the clichés imposed by her heritage. - See more at: Francesca von Habsburg - Vogue.it

An interview from January 2015:

Quote:
Francesca von Habsburg: “artists should be explorers and think of our planet, not wait for the phone call from their gallery”
An off-shore interview with the chairwoman of one of the most innovative private art institutions

n spite of being heiress of the dynasty of industrialists and art collectors Thyssen-Bornemisza, and being the hypothetical empress of the defunct Austro-Hungarian empire, having married its direct heir, Francesca von Habsburg doesn’t like to sit on her throne. If you have the opportunity to be invited to one of the interdisciplinary expeditions on board of the vessel Dardanella, you won’t see her basking in the sunlight, taking pilates classes, or having conversations about the Paris fashion week with a court of botoxed desperate millionaire housewives. You will probably join her on a tender with one of the maximum sound artists Carsten Nicolai, to listen and record the undersea sounds. And she will be the one to manoeuvre the instrumentation. You would listen around a bonfire to the stories of her Maori friends in a far-off New Zealand island, that not even many people from Auckland ever visited. Or you might see her trouble-shooting the production of the many cultural projects she initiates, with that mix of patience and resignation of those who would like to take care of bigger problems. In fact Francesca has bigger plans than enjoying the great reputation of her collection, built through her TBA21 Foundation, which has commissioned over the past 12 years some of the most acclaimed, out-of-the-box artworks presented at the most important biennales and institutions. Her favorite artists, among them also her best friends, include renown names like Marina Abramovic, Olafur Eliasson, Doug Aitken, Carsten Holler, but also many emerging talents. Preoccupied by the progressive and rapid increase of critical mass of the business side of the art world, over its cultural and social function, Francesca is now leading her Foundation and her recently started TBA21 Academy to focus and expand their efforts to promote art as a tool of change, particularly towards what she feels is the biggest challenge that humanity has to face nowadays: the conservation of our environment. Encouraging artists to face in their work the biggest global woes in an emotional and personal way, she hopes to empower the public to take them on in their daily lives, eventually aligning economy with ecology.
