The space and the people: the conditions found in the natural environment have shaped the life of people settled here since time immemorial. Conversely, these inhabitants have always endeavoured to shape and alter nature to their advantage. The contribution by the History Museum to SHOWING STYRIA 2021, titled ‘how it was’, is dedicated to the interplay between man and nature.
‘For me, SHOWING STYRIA continues the great tradition of provincial exhibitions, in a form that is forward-thinking. In this spirit, we in the History Museum engage with central themes of Styrian history in a format and language that is modern. This we do in close collaboration with regional museums and specialists, with the aim of reaching as many people as possible in order to promote their awareness of the omnipresence of history and to emphasise the value of our cultural heritage.’
