History from below


A few decades have oral and visual history started with audio visual aids, "as the prevailing narrative history of the rulers" (Bertolt Brecht) with "history from below to change".

The "Virtual Museum of History Tyrol | South Tyrol" is on this foundation. It also built a new building, adding it can tell the story in stories. The skills of reporting should not be in the hands of the purveyors of knowledge but to stay with those who share their personal experiences in the form of compacted share of memories.The Virtual Museum of History is not a museum that exhibits objects, but are chroniclers of the room, her memories to make objects of perception.

The "Virtual Museum of History Tyrol | South Tyrol" sees itself as a building block for the reconstruction of the oral culture is threatened by decay.
