Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky’s famous Frankfurt Kitchen, a reproduction of which can be seen in the MAK, is prototypical for a domestic setup that is not only aesthetically and technologically refined but laborsaving too. When the kitchen first came out, it signified a real breakthrough. However, the question that comes to the fore today is about the associated consequences for society’s expectations of women. The fundamental preoccupation with rationalizing domestic life and “saving time in the woman’s daily routine,” along with Elke Silvia Krystufek’s artistic proclamation “Vienna cannot be allowed to become Frankfurt,” are matters for critical discussion during a feminist breakfast at the MAK.

The MAK FUTURE LAB is a creative laboratory founded by the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art. Through workshops, lectures, panel discussions, and other formats the MAK FUTURE LAB generates interdisciplinary contributions to a humane shaping and utilization of Digital Modernity. It positions design, architecture, and fine art as driving forces of socially, ecologically, culturally, and economically sustainable market economy models. Through diverse cooperations, it networks these creative sectors with the fields of science, research, business, and politics. The MAK FUTURE LAB aspires to develop both holistic orientation models and strategies for the commons inspired by such models, as well as concrete, innovative business ideas for the future.
