... in Graz from1945 to Today
The exhibition “Protest!” explores the diversity and creativity with which people have made and continue to make their voices heard. It offers opportunities for participation with hands-on stations for visitors. And there is room for bringing in one’s own (protest) experiences.
ReThinking IDENTITIES – Who defines who I am?
Written evidence and representations on clay vessels are the main sources of information on daily life and the role of men and women in society. Potters decorated the vessels and pyxides with scenes from aristocrats’ everyday life and habits. In this exhibition, we focus on three key objects which connect identities from antiquity to today’s world.
Out of Iran
Studying in Graz from the 1950s to the 1970s
This exhibition examines a previously almost unknown chapter in Graz’s post-war migration history, exploring the everyday life of the Iranians in Graz, how they studied, started families and their cultural participation from the 1950s to the 1970s, as well as the protests against the political system in their home country.
Graz Museum Schlossberg
A museum for all
In the Graz Museum Schlossberg visitors learn everything about the history of the Schlossberg and have the most beautiful and widest view of the city. A multimedia Schlossberg model in the underground casemate gives an insight into the mountain. The "Garden of Wonders" with shady hornbeams offers a unique place to arrive and linger. The museum is completely barrier-free and also provides attractive additional offers for blind and visually impaired visitors.
The Brave Cannoneer of the Schlossberg
Anton Sigl was one of the around 900 men who bravely stood their ground in the Schlossberg fortress at that time. And he left us vivid testimonies of this time of radical change: two models of the Schlossberg and a manuscript that describes the events of that time particularly vividly. In addition to his large model of the Schlossberg, his story of the siege and defence of the Schlossberg fortress is now presented as images in the Graz Museum.
