About the exhibition

The title Worlds - Changes - Perspectives marks the starting point for the Folk Life Museum’s new exhibition. It undertakes a survey of the current social situation and cultural forms of expression, linking these how a Central European region sees and perceives itself, one which also enjoys especial popularity as a tourist destination.

The focus shifts to those people living in Styria, staying here or connected with the region in some way or other. What affects people? What do they identify with, what are they concerned about, how do they shape their lives, environment and society? How do they relate to developments that influence their usual way of life?
