At the MAK, art education is understood as a communicative and reciprocal process in which visitors learn from the museum and the museum learns from the public. We offer various ways for you to explore the MAKs varied program, including expert-guided tours, a comprehensive program for schools and the d>lab series of interdisciplinary workshops.
The event series MAK NITE Lab is a platform for experiments and experimental designs. MAK NITE Lab is the MAKs open laboratory for intercreativity held on selected Tuesday evenings; it serves as a practical field of experimentation for the contemporary scene and features artistic stances from contemporary art, (fashion) design, performance, architecture, media and audiovisual art.
Being the largest specialized online archive, the MAK Design Info Pool (DIP) collects information and media material on more than 2,500 Austrian designers and almost 8,000 design objects with the goal of affording an in-depth survey of Austrian design production. The MAK DIP sees itself as a research platform and information contact for the creative community, the scientific community and for the Creative Industries as well as a central communication hub on all matter related to Austrian design.
