Opening TRANSMEDIA 1900

An Intervention by the University of Applied Arts in the MAK’s Permanent Collection

“What's next? What do we, as emerging artists, when we are given the opportunity to interact with an exhibition that is so rich in art history?”
Tue, 12.3.2024 7 pm
MAK – Museum of Applied Arts
This is the question, students from the Transmedia Art class at the University of Applied Arts Vienna (head: Jakob Lena Knebl) asked themselves. They delved deeply into the MAK Permanent Collection Vienna 1900 and responded to the Arts and Crafts movement, the Wiener Werkstätte, or interiors by Adolf Loos und Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky. Their ideas and critical approaches inspired by the Collection are expressed in very different media, including drawings, ceramics, textile works, videos, or music compositions. They reflect themes such as memory, technological change, gender roles, or fundamental shifts in society.
