Visit a museum the way fast food is consumed: In the middle of the MAK Columned Main Hall, the designers from Design in Gesellschaft will serve a selection of design icons, oversized and extremely striking, on a tray.
The large menu will not stand alone: Curated tours of the MAK’s exhibition rooms will connect different objects of the collection through unexpected stories and cross references.
The installation MAK Menu alludes to the museum as a place of “fast-culture-consumption” while at the same time illustrating that there is much more to it: Stories, which are worth taking time for, invite us to look into contemporary museum culture and its special artefacts.
