Visit a museum the way fast food is consumed: In the middle of the MAK Columned Main Hall, the designers from Design in Gesellschaft will serve a selection of design icons, oversized and extremely striking, on a tray.
The large menu will not stand alone: Curated tours of the MAK’s exhibition rooms will connect different objects of the collection through unexpected stories and cross references.
The installation MAK Menu alludes to the museum as a place of “fast-culture-consumption” while at the same time illustrating that there is much more to it: Stories, which are worth taking time for, invite us to look into contemporary museum culture and its special artefacts.
In the context of the MAK Design Nite, the designers will personally be present and accompany tours. Directly in front of the main entrance of the museum on the Stubenring, a further installation will also be set up on this evening: Artful French fries will be served at a French fries stand (MAK Drive) designed and built by “Design in Gesellschaft.” The programme will be accompanied by DJs and drinks in the MAK Columned Main Hall.
