Marias Edelweiss. Maria Augusta von Trapp - reality and truth
Lecture with Ulrike Kammerhofer-Aggermann, director of the Salzburg Institut of folklore Wednesday, September 30, 2009, 7 p.m.

No other product of popular culture has had a greater impact on the perception of the city and state of Salzburg than the musical and film “The Sound of Music.” Unknown to many Austrians and Salzburg locals, it has been forming the “foreign image” of Salzburg for decades, whereas the “self-image” is constantly being shifted toward the projections by the tourism industry.

With this backdrop artists were invited to explore foreign images manufactured by the products of popular culture and to illuminate the fields of tourism, National Socialism, folk culture, and gender in this context.

The exhibition brought together existing works that use “The Sound of Music” as a foundation on one hand, and on the other hand artists were invited to produce new artistic projects.
