Austrian since exactly 200 years – this anniversary gets celebrated in Salzburg in 2016. The historic city of Mozart has in fact been part of Austria since 1816 only. Salzburg Museum dedicates three exhibitions at once to this special bicentenary event: under the collective title “Bishop. Emperor. Everyman”, it exhibits, among others, precious objects that have come back to the city for the first time, after 200 years. A second exhibition tells about the various stories and legends of the city of Mozart, subdivided into twelve subject areas. And under the title “At the Scene”, photo and video artists bring life into selected historic places of the city.
The state exhibition “Bishop. Emperor. Everyman” provides an excellent opportunity for a very personal review of Salzburg’s turbulent past: the three special exhibitions are designed to captivate visitors but also trigger their critical reflection, and display historic objects though without neglecting the present and the future. Aside from these big exhibitions, the anniversary offers of course some more highlights ranging from classic events such as the world-renowned Salzburg Festival to very particular projects, e.g. the Future Lab where promising ideas for the city are developed and put up for discussion.
