The MAK Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art in Vienna is the second oldest museum of applied arts in
the world, and one of the most important. In addition to its preeminence as a museum, the MAK is a space of experimentation
for applied arts, fusing design, architecture, and contemporary art. Focusing on what is new, it explores these fields with
the aim of revealing new perspectives and elucidating discourse that expand the boundaries of the institutions traditions.
At the MAK, the applied arts are positioned at the preeminent level that they merit. The extensive collection encompasses
various epochs, materials, and artistic disciplines, and the institutions novel approaches transform the impact of its
great works through compelling and experimental views.The organization International Friends of the MAK Vienna was established in the United States and registered as a 501 (c) (3) Internal Revenue Code tax exempt organization on October
