MAK DESIGN LAB

Reinstallation since 29 May 2019
The reinstallation of the MAK DESIGN LAB positions design as a motor of sustainable change. Objects from the MAK Collection are placed into a new context and are positioned at the interface between everyday life, society, digitalization, and climate change based on multi-faceted perspectives.

Human by Design

5 Sep – 30 Oct 2019
The exhibition presents concepts, methods, model situations, case studies, and innovative solutions, which express the urgent desire for change and sustainability. It focuses on the critical but not defeatist voices of a young generation of designers and theoreticians who provide examples of solutions from practice.

The exhibition is part of the Project “Design & Innovation” supported by the EU program INTERREG V-A Slovakia–Austria.

Nasuti Festival

Sat, 21 Sep 2019
The festival aims to raise public awareness of the waste management problem (in general) via an attractive artistic and educational program. It will take place on the premises of the creative center Nová Cvernovka. The program will consist of artistic outputs (installations, talks, performances) and an educational part (lectures, discussions, workshops, close-reading groups, etc.). It will also create a platform for individual presentations by NGOs, initiatives, and creative individuals operating in the fields of art, culture, ecology, and sustainability.

PROGRAM DETAILS

Tour of the MAK
The fascinatingly complex cultural epoch denoted by the term “Vienna 1900” has long been the stuff of legend. And the equally multifaceted and momentous output of this period’s artisans and designers is the focus of this guided tour.
 
Functionalist Bratislava
The creation of the democratic Czechoslovak Republic in 1918 significantly changed Pressburg’s appearance. Not only was the city’s name changed to Bratislava; a massive building program in the New Construction style was also initiated. Modern shopping centers with gigantic display windows, unpretentiously elegant bank buildings, functionalist hospitals and residential buildings, not to mention a modernist orthodox synagogue, characterize this new Bratislava to this day. The guided tour through the center of Bratislava focuses precisely on this modernist architecture of the interwar years.
 
Have No Fear of Modernism!
School of Arts and Crafts in Bratislava (1928–1939)
14 Dec 2018 – 29 Sep 2019
The exhibition Have No Fear of Modernism! is devoted to the Bratislava School of Applied Arts (1928–1939), in its heyday one of the most progressive foundations of its kind in Europe—and for this reason known as the Slovak Bauhaus. Nevertheless, this unique institution faded almost entirely into obscurity, and only in recent years has it been rediscovered as an important chapter in the history of modern Slovakia.
