New Ages: Austria Since 1918
November 12th, 1918 marked a step into the unknown. The founding of the democratic republic is the starting point for our re-exploration of Austrian history. The exhibition will show the successful experiment of creating the democratic state, but also the eventual collapse of the First Republic. The dramatic years of dictatorship from 1933/34 to 1938 and the crimes of the National Socialist reign of terror constitute a profound rupture in Austrian history, the effects of which continue to be felt to this day. One hundred years of contemporary history are presented via a multimedia installation of images, stretching over 60 metres.
The topicality of history is presented in specific subject areas: What is Austrian identity? How is equality fought for? What stabilises and destabilises democracy in economic terms? How does the experience of borders change? What role does the traumatic past of dictatorship and the Nazi regime play in the Second Republic?
Innovative educational programmes for children and young people, adults and cross-generational groups will engage with these issues starting in November 2018.
