RAIMUND ABRAHAM

iCalWed, 16.09.2020 3.00 pm
Please registerRAIMUND ABRAHAMThe Austrian-American architect Raimund Abraham (1933–2010) saw architecture in close connection with art, philosophy, literature, and film—an ideational interaction highlighted in the current MAK exhibition. The exhibition title, Angles and Angels, is a play on words, one that can be interpreted as conceptual and poetic. In his manifesto EYES DIGGING (New York, 2001), Abraham sketches his exploratory approach to architecture and the importance of visionary writers, philosophers, poets, theorists, and composers such as Stéphane Mallarmé, James Joyce, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and Arnold Schönberg to his architectural practice.

The occasion is the presentation of selected items from the Bakelite collection of the Viennese gallery owner Georg Kargl (1955‒2018), who was closely associated with the MAK. Kargl was not only an important protagonist of the Viennese and international art scene and an expert on Viennese modernism in the field of applied arts but also a great authority on and a passionate collector of Bakelite.
