The area of Vienna’s Nordwestbahnhof will make way for a huge urban development area for 14,500 residents in the near future. Before the final demolition, the museum attempts to document the eventful history(s) of this last inner-city freight terminal from 1872 to the present using interdisciplinary, artistic and ethnographic methods: Both in the projections of the spatial installation “Perceptual Grounds” by Joanna Pianka and Veronika Suschnig inside the museum, and in the interventions in the open space, the “fish stories” by Tracing Spaces, an urban working and living space is recalled that, despite its size and importance, has remained virtually unknown or forgotten until now.
