Exhibition at the Geymüllerschlössel: MAK DESIGN SALON #01 Michael Anastassiades Time & Again
For the first time ever, the MAK opens the Geymüllerschlössel to host a contemporary design salon. Renowned international designers will be invited to explore the early 19th century era of change and its stylistic and social relations to the present age. The 2012 season is dedicated to the London designer Michael Anastassiades, whose intervention Time & Again playfully engages the idea of the repetition of history. The objects created for the occasion accommodate to the Geymüllerschlössel interiors, initiatingas agents of time and timelessness against the background of the antiques on exhibita time travel to the past and future of this place and facilitating fictional encounters with some of its residents. The intervention evolved out of a light installation entitled Kinetic Light 2 Golden Pendulum (2010). Originally created for the Norfolk House Music Room im Victoria and Albert Museum, London, it was further developed for the cupola room of the Geymüllerschlössel, referencing both the Sobek clock collection and the tradition of the venue as a concert salon.
