Your Graz!

About the exhibition

On November 25, 2018 Prof. Karl Albrecht Kubinzky gifted the major part of his cultural-historical collection to the Universalmuseum Joanneum. Kubinzky is a native of Graz, historian and passionate collector. Graz lies at the heart of his collection. And in 2020 this will be merged with selected Joanneum holdings in the History Museum annual exhibition: the presentation will narrate the history – and stories – of Graz. What is past, will come to life; what is present, will enter our awareness. The extraordinary will encounter the mundane; light will meet shadow; persistence will come up against change. 

Your Graz is a foray into the abundance of the city, starting with the former suburbs – without the margins, there can be no centre – and wending its way through the outskirts to the eponymous core of the city. 

Your Graz, the major city exhibition, is aimed at residents of Graz, and indeed at all those who are interested in the city with its many attributes. Ultimately, it can be seen as a present to Prof. Kubinzky, who will celebrate his 80th birthday in 2020.
