Austria is located at a European crossroads, an intersection of developed and less developed regions, and the junction of East and West. The fact of being a land of immigration has not been adequately reflected in Austrians’ self-image. One aim of this exhibition is to emphatically call attention to the disparity between facts and the general perception. The envisioned exhibition in the Arbeitswelt Museum in Steyr will present an overview of the history of migration to Austria in the 20th century and will discuss the present situation and future scenarios. Professionals will compile these sketches and individual migration histories. People with specific experience of migration might also profitably join in this effort. Small-scale projects will collect these accounts dealing with individuals and migrant organisations.
