The Master Narrative

In ‘The Master Narrative and Don Durito’ the artist Lisl Ponger tells us about the effects of the colonial project and its relevance to the present day, of ethnological museums and their collections as well as of the influence of non-European objects on the visual arts, literature and film.

Lisl Ponger made a collection of “first day issues”. Over a thousand of these envelopes with their colourful images illustrate the strands of the master narrative. The 8-hour 2-channel installation was on view within the special exhibition at #WeltmuseumWien and is now available for you online – in 10 chapters:

Franz Ferdinand's travels

Franz Ferdinand's travels

At the moment we can only dream of travel. Even in 1892/93, the desire to see more of the world was a big one. The 10-month trip around the world by Crown Prince Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Este provides unknown insights into the world of a multifaceted and polarizing person. His journey took him from Pola via Suez, Aden, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Southeast Asia, Oceania, Australia, China and Japan to the United States.

Thanks to his travel diary, we have detailed information about this world trip.

Discover the individual stages in the following English audio snippets:
