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.

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.
