An exhibition, interventions, an audio piece, a film. Funded by the EU program "Europe for Citizens" and supported by the municipalities of Murau, Triebendorf, Lassnitz, and Stolzalpe. Under the scientific direction of Uli Vonbank-Schedler and Werner Koroschitz KEIN SCHÖNER LAND delves into the region's memory culture.

On the basis of comprehensive research in public and private archives and first person interviews, which even led documentary filmmaker Robert Schabus to Montevideo in Uruguay, this three-part project retraces forgotten and suppressed aspects of Murau's history between the 1920s and 1940s.

The expulsion of three Jewish families, the deportation of Sinti and Roma detained in the Triebendorf work camp, and the murder of forced laborers are investigated on a number of levels: partly with scientific facts at the Murau Municipality and Craft Museum and partly through artistic interventions in the center of Murau, along the highway, and in an audio piece in collaboration with Radio Styria. Street signs designed by the German artist Larissa Aharoni indicate the location and the history of the Triebendorf work camp. Along the Anna-Neumann-Straße, Wolfram Kastner reflects upon Jewish families from Murau, and Ernst Logar transforms the rules that forced laborers had to follow into postcards and posters.
