Programme 2019 at Universalmuseum Joanneum

In 2019, the Universalmuseum Joanneum will present two new museum highlights as well as exciting exhibition topics relating to history, art, culture and nature.

The popular Austrian Open-Air museum Stübing, which will be part of the Joanneums from 2019, and the new CoSA - Center of Science Activities in the Joanneumsviertel, considerably extend the offer for visitors.

The Alte Galerie in Schloss Eggenberg is being reorganized and enriched with 30 permanent loans from the Kaiserschild Foundation. The result is an impressive show titled Between dance and death. Episodes of the early modern period tell of the splendor and misery of the centuries between 1500 and 1800.

At Kunsthaus Graz, Connected combines historical and contemporary visions of a world in which art functions as an instrument of societal shaping and progress into a mechanical space ballet.

Serial art - reproducible "art without uniqueness" - is the focus of a major exhibition in the Neue Galerie Graz, with displays art works from the extensive donation to our collection from Grazer Edition Artelier.

The History Museum brings the Styrian "pop stars" of the 20th century on the stage: The show POP 1900-2000 shows a variety of insights into the popular music of Styria. The exhibition Gipfelstürmen! in the Schloss Trautenfels is dedicated to those Styrians who braved expeditions to the roof of the world.

In addition to numerous guided tours and events, the education programme focuses on World Peace Day, species protection and climate change.
