Conversation Piece: with the artist Maria Ziegelböck

“Celebration is an important part of my biography and a central motif in my photographic work. With this in mind, I am working my way through my photos and compiling a series. This series will then once again be separated and integrated into the exhibition: commenting, shoving or parasitically, the images are distributed in the exhibition THE FEST, like more or less welcome guests. In ‘Guests,’ we mix ideas of portrait, fashion, private sphere, drama, and utility photography to create motifs of revelry.”

The “Group Photo 63” serves as an object for this Conversation Piece.

Registration closed
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 with 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)
