10 YEARS SOUTH WING SCHLOSSMUSEUM LINZ - 10 YEARS LINZ '09

EXHIBITION
Opening: 2 July 2019, 6 pm
Exhibition period: 3 July to 29 September 2019

Linz09 – that stood for 365 days of culture in all its facets and a fair amount of change both in and for Linz. Almost 3.5 million people attended more than 7,700 events, exhibitions, festivals, initiatives and projects at Linz09 – these figures exceeded all expectations.

It was a long journey for the city to achieve its new self-confidence. Even prior to 2009 Linz had already undergone massive long-term changes – from an old-style industrial city with catastrophic air pollution to a location with a high quality of life and cultural ambitions.

The Upper Austrian State Museum is taking the 10th anniversary as an opportunity to offer a walk down memory lane. The presentation provides a review of the entire Capital of Culture Year 2009 from many angles, presenting the journey from the first initiative and the application process right up to the realisation phase. Numerous projects such as the Pixel Hotel, Polyphon, Klangwolke [Cloud of Sound], as well as building projects to improve cultural facilities and infrastructure, but also protests against the overall concept, were an enrichment for the city.

The walk also celebrates the South Wing of the Schlossmuseum itself – the tenth anniversary of the Museum’s new build, ten years of outstanding exhibitions. 3 July 2009 saw the opening of the South Wing of the Schlossmuseum which was burnt down in 1800, following reconstruction in a modern style over a period of only three years.

With the opening of the South Wing the Schlossmuseum Linz became Austria’s largest universal museum at a single location. The permanent exhibitions provide an insight into the historico-cultural and scientific collections held by the Upper Austrian State Museum.
