Interview mit Maria Altrichter am Ars Electronica Blog

(Linz, February 18.2.2018) This coming Thursday, February 22nd at 7 PM, Maria Altrichter of the municipal archive will host a trip back in time to Linz in the days when Johannes Kepler lived here. She’ll screen sketches, painting and engravings that give an idea of everyday life in the city in the early 17th century, and accompany the images with fascinating details about urban development. Her talk will also provide a historical overview of an epoch characterized by a Habsburg family feud between brothers Rudolf II and Matthias, as well as the political and religious consequences of the Counter-Reformation.
