100 Years of Border I: 1900–1918

The Period before Demarcation


Opening: 18.04.2018, 7 pm
Curated by: Helmut Konrad

About the exhibition

On the basis of private and regional photographic collections, sound documents and films, the History Museum shows a series of three exhibitions on the division of Styria following the First World War, as well as the political, cultural, economic and social consequences following from that through the last century.

The first of three exhibitions in all is devoted to the period from 1900 to the end of the First World War. This exhibition shows how the border takes root in the minds of people as nationalism grows towards the end of the 19th century; how the real border demarcation comes about through commissions, with the help of border stones and the establishment of checkpoints; and how the border then finally becomes lived reality.
