Educational Projects

In addition to our regular educational program on the permanent collection displays and current exhibitions, there are ongoing personal and media projects in the field of art education. We focus on encouraging young people to participate as well as on projects involving digital educational approaches.

Die Wiener Kuchl [The Viennese Kitchen]

In the context of the “Hunger for Art and Culture” program “Culture-Transfair,” designers, social workers, and educators worked with homeless people. The cooperation led to the development of the DIY Wiener Kuchl.

In cooperation with the MAK, students at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and people with experience of displacement participated in a seminar to develop an education concept for the MAK

How does an older age group perceive the MAK? 60PLUS is an inclusive design project that draws upon the extensive experience of expert users in order to make the MAK more attractive for all visitors.


Friedrich Kiesler und ich (?)

A participatory project with three Viennese school classes focusing on the creative work of the architect, artist, designer, set designer, and theorist Friedrich Kiesler. The resulting works were displayed as an integral part of the show FREDERICK KIESLER: Life Visions (15 Jun – 2 Oct 2016), as the project had started several months before the opening of the exhibition. 


Der Traum vom Raum [Dream Space]

During the VIENNA BIENNALE 2015: Ideas for Change, the MAK worked together with the Vienna Family Association in the context of the project Bauwerk:Stadt—My City 2051. The partnership continued in 2016 with a participative design project in a recreational space provided by the Vienna Family Association for young people.
