18. October 2016 – January 2017As a counterpoint to the prevailing “throw-away” economic model, under the rubric of a circular economy the entire life cycle
of a product is designed. After use, all components are fed back into their respective natural or technological loops. Of
interest to the StadtFabrik is the question of loops that especially in a city can be closed by exploiting available resources and short routes. Also
to be examined are the sustainable production opportunities that the fields of automated manufacturing or the combination
of high tech and handcraftsmanship open up in the creative industries. Moreover, through its permanent presence and accessibility to the public, the IDRV-curated and -organized StadtFabrik contributes to raising awareness and increasing demand for products and services produced in an urban context. Vienna’s denizens
and interested museum visitors are invited to take part in this process.
