100 years, 8 topics, 24 short films: the audiovisual exhibition “shaping democracy – the republic in 24 frames per century” takes visitors on a participative tour through the history of the Austrian Republic based on its guiding principles and paradoxes. How the country sees itself and how it is seen from outside, its political and cultural self-image, and the Republic’s individual and collective memory are illuminated from a contemporary perspective.
Curated by Doris Bauer and Daniel Ebner from the short film festival VIS Vienna Shorts.
