The Khevenhüller Chronicle was commissioned by Count Franz Christoph von Khevenhüller and written around 1620 by Georgius Moshamer. In 1937, it became part of the MAK’s inventory. After a keynote by Kathrin Pokorny-Nagel, Head of the Library and Works on Paper Collection, Beate Murr, Conservation, and Tabea Harney, Academy of Fine Arts, will present the concept for research on and conservation and digitalization of the Chronicle in cooperation with the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Due to complex damage and in order to correctly interpret phases of revisions, a close cooperation between experts for specific problems and for natural scientific analyses is essential. Only a concept designed in a holistic and interdisciplinary way will do the cultural-historical value of the Khevenhüller Chronicle justice.

Together with (young)MAK, we invite to the open, discursive workshop series Open Crocheting! Textile crafts techniques (crocheting in the first step) are learned and applied with the aim of encountering one another. Textile discourse, technique and materiality knit, or, more precisely, crochet together. Artists, thinkers, scientists, as well as crafts technicians will be invited to provide impulses, passing on their approaches as artistic, content, and technical impulses, and as inspiration or assistance in the context of short lectures, performances, or presentations. Visitors are encouraged to join in on discussions, stories, gossip, and chats, and especially in crocheting!

Dialogue
Caroline Wohlgemuth in conversation with journalist Sabine Nikolay
 
In 1938 Vienna lost its best, most creative minds. It was a historical rupture that affected all the arts and sciences and whose reverberations can be felt to this day—to include in the world of furniture design. With inexhaustible creativity, the Viennese designers continued their work in exile. They taught at the best universities and disseminated their ideas and visions throughout the world. Epitomizing the Mid-Century Modern Style, their furniture became 20th-century design classics. The book pays homage to the Jewish furniture designers who were forced to leave Vienna. It presents their life stories and visionary designs—that are today more relevant than ever.
