What Really Matters to Us. Cultural Heritage – A Challenge
Curated by Christa Benzer & Sabine Benzer, organized by Vorarlberg Museum, Bregenz. December 2022 - May 2023.
Whether works of art, architecture, customs or crafts - a society defines itself not least through its cultural past. Opinions, however, differ widely as to what counts as part of cultural heritage today. And cause controversy when you think of monuments to former politicians, for example. The cultural heritage is no longer predetermined by tradition, it always has to be renegotiated if it wants to be as inclusive as possible and thus identity-forming. Numerous artists make a contribution to this debate in the exhibition What is important to us!
Susanne Schneider and Johannes Schweiger (WIENER TIMES) have for the exhibition What is important to us!trawled through the textile pattern collection of Franz M. Rhomberg, which the Stadtmuseum Dornbirn saved from being sold abroad. In an installation that can be seen in the Stadtmuseum Dornbirn, the WIENER TIMES bring out a selection of the historical “treasures” including tablecloth patterns and fabric pattern collages.
In collaboration with Relevances. Association for promoting dialogue around cultural heritage.
