The brand-new MAK LAB APP, a project in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research, mediates crucial issues for shaping the future in this era of Digital Modernity and climate change.
 Attractively designed with a playful approach to the subject, it complements the parcours of the MAK DESIGN LAB, which was newly set up in 2019, and since the beginning of the year can be accessed on all smartphones at lab.mak.at.


The DIGITAL LIFE LITERACY area of the app mediates essential concepts for shaping the future of Digital Modernity and climate change. Under DESIGN LAB PATHS, users can take special tours on their own, on topics such as society, digitalization, and climate change. GAMES FOR CHANGE allows schoolchildren and young adults to playfully access the MAK DESIGN LAB’s topics.
One of the MAK’s aims in preparing the MAK LAB APP was to provide incentives to extend and intensify contact and cooperation with such educational institutions as high schools, middle schools, and vocational high schools. This invitation to get involved in research and interaction is intended not only to provide orientation but also to stimulate participation and both active and discursive engagement with such urgent topics as digitalization, climate change, and shaping our society’s future.


DIGITAL LIFE LITERACY

DIGITAL LIFE LITERACY

“Literacy” means knowledge. Framed on exciting stories, the “Digital Life Literacy” menu point looks at this knowledge of relevance for the 21st century. “What does data protection have to do with democracy? Visibility with power? Open source with personal responsibility? Development of new table cultures with climate protection? Does your cell phone make you a cyborg?” These are some of the questions raised here.
DESIGN LAB PATHS

DESIGN LAB PATHS

The digital tours of the MAK LAB APP, the so-called “paths”, make it possible to explore themes revolving around climate change and the fascinating possibilities of digitalisation from your own home. One can wander through the LAB from object to object in a theme–related way on the total of 16 “paths,” which function like Instagram stories. One also finds stimulating further information and impulses for thought and roams through animated visual worlds.

MAK DESIGN LAB

MAK DESIGN LAB

Across approximately 2 000 square meters, the MAK DESIGN LAB demonstrates the many ways design can contribute to positive change. Contemporary projects by designers, artists, architects, programmers, activists, and idealists that react to the challenges of the 21st century and visualize problems, suggest alternatives, or offer solutions are contextualized in complex ways with historical approaches from the MAK collection.
