About the exhibition

The Rosegger Museum in Krieglach shows Peter Rosegger from a new angle in the commemoration year of 2018, inviting visitors to learn about new, previously unnoticed aspects of the writer, journalist, poet, forest lad and tailor’s apprentice that was Rosegger. And so we have finally taken a long-overdue step, to move away from the cliché of the romantically idealised forest peasant boy wading through deep snow in winter, to present a critical, political, indeed at times self-promoting Styrian.
