Feminism! A word that is hotly debated, ignored, suppressed and defended – in short, a concept that polarises. Feminism is both a cause for thought, a variety of theories, a political movement, a package of demands and practices as well as a stance, a lifestyle, many lifestyles. In a nutshell, there is no one type of feminism This exhibition offers an opportunity to engage with all these topics, to empathise, gain new perspectives, but also to speak out, enter into a dialogue, pose questions, find answers and formulate new questions.


The museum is opening to show feminisms” in all their variety: At the beginning of the exhibition, individual areas of the walls will initially remain empty. By the end of the exhibition, these empty spaces will be filled through a process involving invited activists as well as the public. In the process, it is possible that the original museum narrative is challenged or interrupted. Thus, the results of the five working group meetings scheduled are incorporated every few weeks – possibly also for the purpose of deconstruction.


In six themed spaces, contemporary artistic positions together with historical artefacts guide the viewer through a lively discourse. In the spotlight are Austrian history, particularly Linz, with facts, feelings, experiences, subjective realities and prevailing attitudes. The exhibition also sees itself as an opportunity to encounter other perspectives with curiosity and to challenge fixed attributions.

#Insight: What the Fem*?

Schools & kindergartens

The Nordico Stadtmuseum offers pupils of all school levels the ideal framework for learning about the history of the city. Our methods are oriented towards dialogical, self-discovering and research-based learning and are based on the realities of the pupils’ lives. Our goal is to perceive history as connected to the present and everyday culture and to convey what it means that a museum tells history(s) through objects. Therefore, especially for younger pupils, imagination and the telling of their own stories play an important role.
