Special exhibition 2020
Portraits of mountain folk
Mining has over the centuries marked not only the landscape, but also the people who live in the central Alpine regions. The exhibition takes as its starting point photos of mountain dwellers who have in recent centuries worked in the mines at Ridnaun/Schneeberg and Prettau, presenting these as portraits along with brief biographies. Images, text and sound are combined with a selection of personal items to bring to life the entrepreneurs, miners and women who all worked in the industry.
