Nikola Tesla and the Graz Tech

6 – 24 JULY 2021

Organizer: Austrian Cultural Forum

The exhibition ‘Nikola Tesla and the Graz Tech’ is dedicated, as the name suggests, to the years Nikola Tesla spent in this city, where he studied and received an honorary doctorate in 1937, as well as his legacy and the mark he left behind in the present. Tesla’s relationship to the Graz University of Technology, at the time known as the k.k. Technische Hochschule is particularly explored. In addition to the most pivotal moments in Tesla’s life and his technological achievements, the exhibition sheds light on how Tesla’s idea influenced science and industry and development of the educational institutions of that place.
