Dr. Mechthild Dubbi

Curator of the Production Engineering collection section

With the Vienna Technical Museum since:

January 1998

My duties include:

Together with my colleague Hubert Weitensfelder I look after the exhibition on Heavy Industry and the Production Engineering collection section, in particular the Glass & Ceramics, Food, Beverages & Tobacco collection groups, and part of the special exhibitions (decorative cast iron items, apothecary jars).

My duties:

  • Expanding, developing, documenting and providing scientific support for the collection groups
  • Working on the complete inventory of the Museum’s collections
  • Publications
  • Curating of exhibitions
  • Curator’s guided tours
  • International contacts and conference attendance 

My key areas of research:

As a historian I work on the history of technology in the 19th century and conduct research on autobiographies and the middle classes.

My recommendation for you:

Come and see our exhibition entitled "AT WORK - Exhibition on the dynamics of working life", which features lots of historical exhibits from the Production Engineering collection section.
