Images of an exhibition at the Jewish Gaon State Museum in Vilnius, Lithuania. I have taken the first line of the Austrian National Anthem, "Land der Berge" etc..and questioned the 19th century concept of Nationalism. I have tried to capture the feelings and issues related to the problematic relationship Austrians have with their national image of being a country with beautiful landscape and sublime culture being undermined by immigrants from very different cultures which many Austrians find threatening.
