Coronas Ahnen: Masken und Seuchen am Wiener Hof 1500 – 1918

Unfortunately, text is only available in German

Bereits unsere Vorfahren mussten mit großen Epidemien leben. Immer wieder wurde die Welt von schrecklichen Seuchen wie Pest, Pocken, Cholera oder Spanische Gruppe heimgesucht.
Die Strategien, mit denen man sie zu bekämpfen suchte, wirken erstaunlich vertraut: schon in der Frühen Neuzeit gab es Schließungen von Grenzen und Vergnügungsstätten, Handelsbeschränkungen, Social Distancing und Quarantäne für Reisende, Kranke und deren Kontaktpersonen.

Die Ausstellung „Coronas Ahnen“ wurde in kürzester Zeit konzipiert und möchte einen Beitrag dazu leisten, das Schockerlebnis der aktuellen Pandemie durch den Blick auf die Vergangenheit zu verarbeiten. Anhand von rund 50 ausgewählten Objekten spannt sich der Bogen von Turnier- und Karnevalsmasken des Wiener Hofes über Zeugnisse der großen Epidemien und Dokumente zur Impf-Geschichte bis hin zu den imposanten Trauerroben der Habsburger wie die Trauermaske der Kaiserin Sisi, mit der sie bei Trauerfeiern ihr Gesicht bedeckte, um einerseits ihrem Schmerz Ausdruck zu verleihen und andererseits um ihr alterndes Gesicht vor neugierigen Blicken zu schützen.
