Hittisau Women’s Museum presents changing exhibitions which examine topics from the fields of history, art, architecture, social history, ethnology, craftsmanship, etc. from a female point of view. Attention is paid to switching between or combining regional and international points of view. To accompany the exhibitions, the Women’s Museum offers an extensive supporting programme of individually organised special guided tours, talks, workshops, concerts, readings and film showings.
Exhibition: “Caring for life… Support – care – assistance culture”
This insight into the history of caring for the sick shows that the role of women was always key. Even today, care work either as a profession or in families is still mainly a matter for 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.
