Haltestelleninstallation „Frau Hitt und die 19 Fragen“

Frau Hitt and the 19 Questions

Opening: 11 April 2019
Duration: 12 April to 25 October 2019
Location: at 7 IVB stops from “Höttinger Au/West” to “Landesmuseum”

In 2019, on the occasion of its 350th anniversary, the University of Innsbruck invites the public to engage in dialogue. The exhibition Frau Hitt and the 19 Questions deals with the legendary rock formation on the Northern Range and offers revealing insights into the different disciplines and research Areas.

Frau Hitt, the prosperous queen of giants,
is acting unethically and immorally.
As thunder growls and lightning strikes
a divine power turns the monarch
into cold, dead stone.

In the anniversary year, the powerful ruler is sent on a journey of discovery through the faculties of the university. What if microbiologists and lawyers, philosophers and sports scientists were to study the tales surrounding the striking rock formation?
