Halls of the Permanent Collection 1993-2012/2013

The MAK Study Collection 1993-2013

With the MAK’s renovation in 1986 and the associated development of new strategies for presenting the museum’s holdings, the MAK Permanent Collection-conceived to present the museum’s collection highlights in interplay with artistic interventions-was joined by the MAK Study Collection.
In the Study Collection, the MAK showed a small cross-section of its extensive holdings according to a material and technology-specific form of organization to which the respective collection curators’ specializations correspond. In this area of the museum, the items on exhibit were also embedded within their typological, historical and/or functional contexts.
