Associations in Perspective: The Graz Trachtensaal and the Analysis of its Cultural Background
Bourgeois ideas about how to look, such as what clothes to wear to belong to a certain social class, can induce fear. The Trachtensaal in Graz with its display of figures and clothing of the bourgeois imagination is an expression of the upheaval during the transition to an industrial society. As such, it is associated with the fear of modernization and disappearing traditions that the management of the Volkskundemuseum in the 1930s had. The authors of the collection Unheimlich heimisch want to approach this fear and the tradition of the Trachtensaal with methods from the study of culture and thereby open a broad spectrum of research on the subject of Tracht.
