On the Margaretengürtel, the
legendary “Ringstraße of the proletariat,“ there is a collection of the various trends in Viennese public housing complexes
within a small area—with the very first public housing unit from Hubert Gessner from after 1918, to the originally much more
radically planned Reumannhof, up to the anti-monumental, New Objective solution by Josef Frank and the architect duo Judtmann/Riss.

A discussion between Helmut Leder, psychologist, and Kathrin Pokorny-Nagel, curator
and head of the MAK Library and Works on Paper Collection/Archive
Psychologist Helmut Leder’s research focuses
on why we experience something as being aesthetic. In close cooperation with experts in such fields as biology, design, and
philosophy, he analyzes the processes involved in aesthetic experience. His research has demonstrated that the ability to
perceive beauty perseveres even in someone suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Together with Sagmeister & Walsh, he has
made a film sequence on this topic that is being shown in the exhibition.
