2.30–4.30 pm
Graphic workshop for adults with Sven Völker 
There is a little black spot on the sun
Award-winning Berlin graphic designer and artist Sven Völker introduces us to a specially developed design method he used to illustrate his book Da ist ein kleiner schwarzer Fleck auf der Sonne [There is a little black spot on the sun] to the song King of Pain by Sting. He shows how a song can be expressed in self-designed motifs while experimenting with a special stamping technique. Afterwards, the participants will have the opportunity to realize their own image compositions, print ideas in an exchange with the artist, and learn about the distinctive features and advantages of stamp printing. 
 
Participation fee: regular € 30 (incl. admission), reduced € 24 (MAK Annual Ticket Holders, MARS Members)

MAK Geymüllerschlössel

Pötzleinsdorfer Straße 102, 1180 Vienna
Admission € 7
Free entry to the park and to James Turrell’s skyspace The Other Horizon
 
In the Geymüllerschlössel, a Biedermeier-era gem in Vienna-Pötzleinsdorf, the MAK presents original furniture from the first half of the 19th century, Old-Viennese clocks from the Franz Sobek Collection, as well as the interventions of contemporary artists and designers.
 
As the third position Jojo Gronostay will provide the MAK Geymüllerschlössel with his video installation MAGIC CANNOT CROSS THE SEA relating to the so-called sapeurs of Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of the Congo. The sapeurs, mostly men living under precarious circumstances, whose fetish for brand name fashion has taken on a spiritual dimension, fashion themselves like dandies in expensive suits and make the streets their catwalk with performative movements. Gronostay contextualizes video recordings of the sapeurs with objects of clothing from museums, thus commenting the Eurocentric understanding of fashion with which the costume collections of classic museums of applied arts have been created.
 

All exhibitions, the MAK Design Shop, the Reading Room and the MAK Geymüllerschlössel will be open on 26.10.2022 from 10 am–6 pm!
Admission € 7
