The common history of Southern Austria and Slovenia during the Habsburg Monarchy has resulted in the situation that thousands of archaeological objects and documents from what is now Slovenia can be found in Austrian museums and archives. As part of an EU project, this material will be made available until 2014, and we would like to explore the museological dimension of this topic in a public conference: What do changing political demarcations mean for the way in which museums deal with historical remains? But what happens if these become important for the identity of a particular group or population of a region, but they are found in the institutions of another country? Where might we find constructive discussions on this topic already in progress? What practical solutions have theoretical debates provided? And what use is the term “European cultural heritage” in this context?
