Exhibition Vienna 1900: New Presentation of the MAK Permanent Collection in Vienna – until 23 June 2013
This presentation starts a process of renewal and renovation within the MAK Permanent Collection, with the opening of three newly designed and installed galleries (unchanged since 1993). These spaces are devoted to the development of Viennese arts and crafts between 1890 and 1938 and are intended to position the MAK and its collection as an international center of research for Viennese Modernism. The permanent exhibition display is conceived as a “work in progress.” In its first phase, designed by Viennese architect Michael Embacher, the conceptual framework developed by Christian Witt-Dörring, in collaboration with the MAK collection curators, is embodied by collection objects, which are for the most part relatively unknown to the public. In keeping with MAK’s well-known practice of basing the design of its galleries on an encompassing artistic concept, the Los Angeles based artist Pae White has been commissioned to develop an artistic intervention for the second, concluding phase of the project. It will be opened in May 2013, on the basis of this temporary presentation and object selection.
