Program / Martina Griesser-Stermscheg and Johannes Kapeller (TMW)

9. 5. / W»BA 18:16

The Technical Museum Vienna preserves and collects the history of austrian technology.The Österreichische Mediathek preserves sound and video recordings of Austrian cultural and contemporary history.

Together we ask ourselves how national cultural institutions can transcend borders and how our collective history beyond our borders can be collected, addressed or remembered.

In the tracks of the Vienna Tram, we set off to explore the traces which mark the historical and current connections, demarcations and transitions between Slovakia and Austria in our institution.
