MAK – Museum of Applied Arts

Talk by Guest Curator and Collector Friedrich C. Heller and Ursula Brandstätter
Picture books—whether for children or adults—can impressively express the different artistic tendencies through the medium of the book. During this process, the artists’ deeply impressive creativity becomes visible, which knows how to bring not only the beauty, wealth, and hope, but also the threats of our world into pictures. A selection of picture books from the 1960s to the present, for example by Sonia Delaunay, Bruno Munari, Olaf Nicolai, and Lawrence Weiner, gives an impression of this diversity. This exhibition is a continuation of the children’s book exhibitions shown at the MAK in the past. In addition to loans from the Friedrich C. Heller Collection, objects from the MAK Collection’s significant holdings will be presented.
 
Guest Curator: Friedrich C. Heller in collaboration with Ursula Brandstätter

Admission every Tuesday 6-9 pm € 7
