MAK Branch Geymüllerschlössel

Please registerTour of the GeymüllerschlösselIn the Geymüllerschlössel, a Biedermeier-era gem in Vienna-Pötzleinsdorf, the MAK presents original furniture from the first half of the 19th century, Old-Viennese clocks from the Franz Sobek Collection, as well as the interventions of contemporary artists and designers. Immerse yourself into the world of the Empire and Biedermeier era, which here stands in a fascinating contrast with the ceramic sculptures of Erwin Wurm. The sculptural body segments invade the Geymüllerschlössel’s interior, creating tableaux vivants—dramaturgical arrangements located between movement and stasis, history and the present—in individual rooms. In the garden of the Schlössel, Erwin Wurm’s sculptures of Carrara marble connect up to the artist’s role in critically illuminating and distorting our world.

Michael Anastassiades is primarily known as a designer of lighting fixtures, though he also works in many other sectors (glassware for J. & L. Lobmeyr and furniture for Gebrüder Thonet Vienna). In addition, he is active in exhibition and interior design. For the SHOWROOM WIENER WERKSTÄTTE he has also developed a special display in which he uses his own products and stylistic elements to create an astonishingly alienating setting for the WW exhibits.

The fascinatingly complex cultural epoch denoted by the term “Vienna 1900” has long been the stuff of legend. And the equally multifaceted and momentous output of this period’s artisans and designers is now the focus of a section of the MAK Permanent Collection. At this presentation’s thematic core is the multifarious struggle to arrive at an Austrian, modern, bourgeois, and democratic style. Today, this chapter of design and arts and crafts history—subsumed under the terms of Secessionism and Jugendstil—serves like no other to underpin Austrian identity. But around 1900, the search for a suitable style reflected an identity crisis of the bourgeois class. The entirely contradictory results of this search were tied together by a central characteristic of the modern era: a pioneering desire for expressive individuality.
