Espionage! 39 Cases

Can a state have secrets? If so, whom do they serve? Do they serve to protect the citizens, maintain the power of the elites or even subjugate the state’s own population? When are espionage and betrayal justified? And what purpose justifies which means? This special exhibition at the House of History in the Lower Austria Museum addresses such questions.


"Espionage!" presents 39 spectacular cases from the history of secret services and surveillance. It also marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989. A contemporary witness forum called "Narrated History" and various collaborative projects with museums in Horn, Weitra and Brno round out the exhibition.

For the young and young at heart, an "espionage academy" offers interactive experiments in spying techniques. You can, for example, practice deciphering codes, decrypting messages or detecting surveillance bugs.

Curators: Christian Rapp, Andrea Thuile & Benedikt Vogl
