Michael Wallraff has been invited to present his conceptual mode of working in a solo exhibition. In the context of present-day technological developments such as those currently transforming the fields of communication, mobility and ecology, Wallraff conceives of the city as a dynamic structure with a great deal of creative potential.
The exhibition presents Wallraffs designs and plans for new works of architecture as well as interventions in historical building stock and three-dimensional experimental forms.
The lions share of the works to be displayed were created as part of the project Der Vertikale öffentliche Raum [The Vertical Public Space], for which Wallraff was awarded a grant by departure, the creative agency of the City of Vienna, in 2008.
1999 Wallraff took part in the MAK Schindler Scholarship Program in Los Angeles, in 2004 he founded the Viennese Architects Office.
Curator Bärbel Vischer
In 2011 the exhibitions in the MAK Gallery present current positions in architecture which in visionary developments deal with procedural structures and systems.
