About the exhibition

Along with tens of thousands of objects relating to Graz, the Kubinzky Collection contains some 12,500 picture postcards from the various regions of Styria. We are dedicating an exhibition to this collection.


The starting point of the presentation is a snapshot of the province’s natural and cultural landscapes: the majestic mountains and tranquil expanses, the lakes and rivers, the villages and historical towns, the castles and sights. From this, the analysis is directed at self-perceptions and desired images, at idealised, standardised constructions of town and country, the charm of the serial, the significance of colour, as well as the creation of certain atmospheres.



The exhibition Forever Beautiful! looks beyond the Year of Culture 2020 and towards the Steiermark Schau 2021 (Styrian Show).
