Registration closed
The author of Radikale Zärtlichkeit – Warum Liebe politisch ist questions the conventions and traditional relationships within which we experience and bestow love. This is because the ways in which we can shape intimate time spent with one another extend far beyond romantic, monogamous love with the capital purchasing power of several million roses. We warmly invite you to discover the diversity and the political dimension of love with a Conversation Piece in the MAK!
We need to talk! The MAK starts the new art education format Conversation Pieces. We will speak with artists, activists, scientists, and personalities from various fields about select objects from the MAK Collection. Conversation Pieces is dedicated to themes like diversity, feminism, participation or loneliness, symbiotic bodies, racism in collections, planet care, and much more. We use the MAK as a polyphonic place for the exchange of ideas and to engage in various sociopolitical discourses and problems that enable new perspectives on an extraordinary collection. Conversation Pieces can be understood as an impetus to make widespread pictorial worlds and narratives visible and to critically question them by talking about them together.

We kindly ask you to arrive at least 20 minutes before the event begins. 
In addition to the event fee, a museum ticket (admission ticket, MAK Annual Pass, Kulturpass, etc.) is required to attend the event. Participation fee: € 10 (excl. admission to the museum)
