Every three years the “Eligius“ Jewelry Award of the Federal State of Salzburg competition is held, open to entrants from all over Austria. Mainly young artists producing innovative works take part in the competition, with the selection offering an overview of today’s jewelry scene in Austria. This year for the first time, a presentation will take place in the MAK, in cooperation with the Traklhaus in Salzburg, where the objects, selected and given awards by an expert jury, will be on display before.

Curator Elisabeth Schmuttermeier, MAK Curator Metal and Wiener Werkstätte Archive

MAK Study Collection In the Study Collection, the MAK exhibits selected objects of its extensive collection on a permanent basis. The arrangement by materials corresponds to the specializations of the collection’s curators, while the selection is based mainly on major lines of development. Temporary exhibitions offer an opportunity to cast a spotlight on various aspects of the collection and to consider objects in the collection between the poles of applied and contemporary art.

Asia Collection

Curator: Johannes Wieninger
The MAK Asia Collection consists of around 25,000 objects from China, Japan, Korea and Vietnam dating from between the Neolithic period and the present; these represent a wide range of artistic and artisan output from Asia and simultaneously provide insight into the centuries-long reciprocal relationship between Asia and Europe. Like other collections of its kind, the MAK Asia Collection is itself a work of Orientalism: all of the objects collected here were selected by Europeans and thus represent European tastes.
