150 Years of the University of Applied Arts Vienna
A cooperation between the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the MAK: Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art.
In 1867 the School of Arts and Crafts was established at the Imperial Royal Austrian Museum of Art and Industry (today’s MAK) to enable Austrian arts and crafts to compete internationally. This school is the antecedent institution of today’s University of Applied Arts Vienna, which is now celebrating its 150th anniversary.
The exhibition AESTHETICS OF CHANGE: 150 Years of the University of Applied Arts Vienna in two parts casts a glance back onto 150 years of the University’s history, while at the same time daring to look into the future.
What will the future hold?
We created an interactive installation — a digital guest book — where visitors can share their thoughts, ideas and visions for the future. While writing your entry, it is simultaneously projected onto a big wall within the exhibition. At the same time analogue and digital, the contribution will remain visible beyond the visit to this exhibition.
