The River Mur

A Cultural History

28.08.2015-17.07.2016 10:00-17:00

Opening: 27.08.2015, 7 pm
Curated by: Bettina Habsburg-Lothringen

The special exhibition of the Museum im Palais, which is part of the thematic focus ‘Landscape’ that will be taken up at several locations of the Universalmuseum Joanneum, places at centre stage the relationship between man and Styria’s largest river – the Mur.

In eight chapters, this exhibition sheds light on a space that repeatedly re-grew out of perception and experience, action and reaction, cultural and social practices, as well as due to a large number of protagonists involved.
