OTTO NEURATH. Gypsy Urbanism

Wed, 04.11.2009–Sun, 31.01.2010

MAK Center L.A., Schindler House

Austrian philosopher Otto Neurath (1882-1945), a founder of the Vienna Circle and the Unity of Science movement, was a collaborator with the leading planners, architects and artists of his time: Adolf Loos, Rudolf Carnap, Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky, Josef Frank, László Moholy-Nagy and Le Corbusier. Involved in housing development and museum exhibitions, Neurath promoted participatory forms of democratic exchange, eager to create what he termed a 'global polis.' His inclinations and efforts had a profound influence on a range of disciplines, including architecture, philosophy, economics, urbanism, and design.

Performativity

Marlies Wirth, Curator MAK NITE Lab
The notion of performativity shifts the focus to the activities of producing and making as well as to those actions, exchange processes, changes, and dynamics that define actors and cultural events. What is in the center therefore is not so much objects, monuments or artworks considered as representing a culture or a cultural self-image, but rather the dynamic processes of making and using them.
