The surka of Stanko Vraz, 19th century, National Museum of Slovenia

The surka is a part of a men’s costume that was worn over one shoulder in addition to the formal summer costume. In the period around 1848, the surka was considered a Slavic national garment; it reflected the costumes of former Styrian Illyrians and Young Slovenes Slavic enthusiasts.

Kitchen Debate – Debata o kuhinji

The conception of the exhibition is based on the book How we survived communism and even laughed (1991) by the Croatian writer, Slavenka Drakulič (1949). The author describes her visits to her friends in the Eastern bloc countries which always took part in the kitchens of her hostesses. Their gatherings were hearty and despite the want full of playful joy and optimism.

The exhibition is divided into nine content-related parts and highlights the kitchen spaces within different periods and social classes, and connects particular kinds of food with a story of a person that personifies the content-related part.

Museoeurope 2016 will be held in order to honour the 170th anniversary of a performance in the Knight's Hall of the Maribor castle which was held by the musical virtuoso Franz Liszt. We are also preparing an extensive exhibition about the musical life in Styria in the 19th century and a symposium which will be devoted to the musical virtuoso Franz Liszt within the scope of the project.

Museoeurope 2014 - The practical value of the wooden wheelWith its exhibition The Practical value of the Wooden Wheel, the Regional Museum Maribor is emphasising one of the oldest crafts. The wheelwright's craft represents one of the most important branches of the economy. This craft is tightly connected with the production of the first means of transportation, which have mainly been used in the fields of the trade and agriculture. The evolution of the wheelwright's craft has preserved its progressive function from its beginnings, when 5200 years ago the wheel with an axle had been developed, and until the very day.

The Regional Museum Maribor is inviting you to take part at the international symposium, which will be held on the 26th and 27th of September 2014 in Maribor. The principal topic of the symposium is The Practical Value of the Wooden Wheel.

The symposium will be addressing the topics concerning the different views on the applicability of the wooden wheel, with the emphasis on the research of transport, agriculture and different crafts, whereby the wheelwright’s craft will be the one, which will be brought into prominence. The papers are to be written in English; they will be published in an electronic publication.

The main artefact, which is being lent by the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant from Bucharest, is complementing the permanent exhibition on the wheelwright’s craft of the Regional Museum Maribor and is representing a part of a cart from the 20th century. It had been used by the inhabitants of the Obîrsia village in the Hunedoara region, a wider part of the multicultural region of Transylvania.

The wheel is a component of the cart. It is made out of oak wood, bind with two metal rings, 12 spokes (from which 11 are made out of ash wood and one from acacia wood), and six rings made from ash wood. A metal ring, with the thickness of one centimetre, is placed on the outside of the wooden rings. The metal ring is secured by rivets, which gave resilience to the wheel.

Museoeurope 2012 - The language of peaceJust like all states, Styria too had its own territorial army. Besides the infantry the army also existed of cavalry units. The latter consisted of harquebusiers and cuirassiers. The weapons were mainly acquired from the Styrian Armoury from the city of Graz. This armoury provided the armaments for the defence of the municipalities as well as for the mercenary soldiers.

The Regional Museum Maribor invites you to attend a cycle of lectures by native and foreign experts, which will be held within the scope of the project The European Capitol of Culture – Maribor 2012. The lectures will refer to the guest appearances of the museum objects within the framework of the exhibition. We are expecting lecturers from Austria, Germany, Vatican, Poland, Croatia and Slovenia.

THE UNIFORM OF THE PONTIFICAL SWISS GUARDS

The uniform of the Pontifical Swiss Guards takes us back to the times of the Counts of Brandis and the Pope Pius VI, who had spent the night in the castle of Maribor in the year of 1782. We can state without fear of contradiction that the pope had been accompanied by the members of the Swiss Guard, which had protected him on his journey from Vatican to Vienna. The first guardsmen are already being mentioned in the 16th century. The particular version of the uniform, which is being exhibited, dates back to the year of 1914 and was codified by the Swiss Guard Commandant of the time, Jules Repond.

THE SCULPTURES OF THE STRAUB BROTHERS

Straub is the family name of renowned sculptors, which originated from Wiesensteig, a town in Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany. The Straub family is one of the most important artistic families in the sphere of Middle Europe in the 18th century. The sculpting profession of the father Johann Georg Straub (1674-1755) had been further developed by his five sons: Johann Baptist (1704-1755), who worked as a court sculptor in Munich, Philipp Jakob (1706-1774), a court sculptor in Graz, Joseph (1712-1756), a sculptor in Maribor, Johann Georg (1721-1773), a sculptor in Radgona, and Franz Adam (1726 – before 1771), a sculptor in Zagreb.

THE TABLE OF PRINCE WIŚNIOWIECI IN PRINCESS RADZIWIŁŁ

The table with the family coat of arms of the Radziwiłł and Wiśniowiecki families was made during the rule of the Wettin dynasty, in the time of the Polish-Lithuanian union, which had been one of the greater countries in Europe of that time. The table was made for Michał Serwacy Wiśniowiecki and his wife Tekla Róża, born Radziwiłł. The motifs depict the love relationship as well as the families’ splendour and the pride of their titles of nobility.

Reminiscence preteklosti evropskega izroćila temeljijo na ukani, ugrabitvi in posilstvu, ki ga je “zakrivijo” poželjenje grških bogov. Srednjeveška Evropa nas popelje v svet viteštva, udvorljivosti in razvoja omike, poljuba miru, vdanosti in ljubezni ter nenazadnje vere in upanja.

Prispevki bodo razvrščeni v pet sklopov:

1. sklop: Od ognjišča do prehrambne industrije;
2. sklop: Kuhinja, prostor inovacji;
3. sklop: Hrana med potrebo, užitkom in odvisnostjo;
4. skolp: Kuhinja in hrana v umetnosti, kulturi in politiki;
5. sklop: Kuhinja in hrana v muzejskih postavitvah in pedagoških programih.
