The exhibition Portrait of the Bourgeoisie focuses on cultural life in Maribor in the 19th century. On the one hand, it highlights the vibrant social life that was dictated by the numerous associations in the 19th century, while on the other hand it mirrors the social changes of that time. All these changes are visible in urban planning, music, national awakening and divergence, concern for the language and cultural heritage of the region. Woven into these developments are the technical innovations that led to shifts in communication and the perception of time (the postcard, the pocket watch), transport (the train, the bicycle), the mode of portraiture (the painted or photographic portrait), etc.
