Kaleidoskop einer Stadt
With this exhibition the city museum shows hidden things from its archives. Just like a kaleidoscope, it mirrors Linz in many different facets, and creates new interconnections between its exhibits. An open narrative offers exciting insights into the history of the city. All exhibits are part of the museum’s own collection, and stand for a time, or an event, that is somehow connected to Linz. The question of how to cope with the legacy of the National Socialist era is addressed by the contextualisation of the statue of Aphrodite, which was presented to the city as a gift by the “Führer”.
Long forgotten items, everyday items, exceptional items, or those that have never been shown before find each other in this exhibition. In a lively, and exciting sequence, themes such as Famose LinzerInnen [Famous Linzers] or In Linz daham [At home in Linz], come together. Rarities from cultural history are displayed, and image documents show formative events of the city.
