MAK Vienna

House on the Ring
In a way that is virtually unparalleled by any other institution, the MAK stands for the fruitful combination of the past with the future, something which can be clearly sensed and experienced when visiting its extensive collection, large exhibition halls, themed special exhibitions and discourse-centered program of events. Bringing together applied arts, design, architecture, and contemporary art is one of the museum’s core competencies, in light of which it becomes apparent just what contribution the interplay of these areas is capable of making to overall cultural development.

Metal Study Collection

Curator: Elisabeth Schmuttermeier
Visitors can realise just how diverse the Metal Collection is by viewing the presentation of the objects in the Study Collection Metal, which is arranged according to types. Candleholders, beakers, pots and jugs, bowls and dishes illustrate their stages of stylistic and functional development. Moreover, since 1993 the great variety of the metal collection has been presented in the form of alternating, temporary exhibitions, which also frequently include contemporary jewellery design.
