In her 1988 TV documentary Alltagsgeschichte – Am Stammtisch, which was never broadcast, Elizabeth T. Spira listens to discussions among Austrian pub patrons and stirs up the fascist sentiments deep within them. Around the same time, Vienna is Different: 50 Years after the Anschluss takes a wider focus and assembles voices from individuals and institutions, public advertising and demonstrations. It is not so much what is being said but by whom and in which context that gives shape to a certain topic at a certain time in a certain place.
