Women’s Museum in Hittisau

The only women’s museum in Austria holds changing exhibitions, which examine topics relevant to women from the fields of history, art, architecture, social history, ethnology, craftsmanship, etc. An interplay or a combination of a regional and an international perspective is ensured. To accompany the exhibitions, the Women’s Museum offers a busy supporting programme of individually designed special guided tours, talks, workshops, concerts, readings and film showings.

Exhibition: Who cares? Who’s doing the worrying? Women and the culture of caring, past and present.
A look at the history of nursing shows that the role of women was always an important one. Today, nursing and care – professional as well as within the family – is still mainly undertaken by women. The vast majority of people looking after relatives in need of care are female, as are the majority of geriatric care workers. In this exhibition, the Women’s Museum in Hittisau scrutinises this topic, from a historico-cultural point of view as well as a sociopolitical one.

Bahnhof Andelsbuch cultural society

Culture is a regular visitor to the “bahnhof”, the converted imperial and royal station in Andelsbuch from the abandoned Wälderbahn. It hosts over 50 events every year. Exhibitions, lectures and discussions, fairy story readings, lieder evenings and concerts attract locals as well as visitors from Switzerland, Germany and Liechtenstein to the bahnhof events location. It is the objective of those running the bahnhof to bring global culture to the Bregenzerwald and to show the world which culture thrives in these parts. This may take the form of art by young avant-gardists or the artistic craftsmanship of older people from the Bregenzerwald. The bahnhof enjoys an international reputation amongst musicians, music agencies and the media alike. Moreover, it is the birthplace of the most exciting new band in Austria at the moment – the Holstuanarmusigbigbandclub (HMBC).
