MAK
Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art


TRADITON & EXPERIMENT
The MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art is one of the most important museums of its kind in the world. Originally created as a collection of samples, the unique collection of the MAK, founded in 1863 as the "Imperial-royal Austrian museum of art and industry", stands to the present day for an unusual connection between applied art, design, architecture and contemporary art.

MAK PUBLIC COLLECTION
The expansive rooms of the public collection in the majestic Ringstraße building of Heinrich von Ferstel are designed by contemporary artists and display selected highlights of the MAK collection. In a unique interaction of artistic heritage and contemporary interventions, the historic objects are presented in a new way and invite visitors to consider the objects more thoroughly in this special context.

MAK STUDY COLLECTION
The study collection provides comprehensive insight into the extensive collection areas and visualises the history and diversity of applied art, the wealth of forms and materials, as well as its origin. This is the place for deeper consideration and the comparison of the morphological formations of objects, which have been inspiring artists and designers for generations.

TEMPORARY EXHIBITIONS
In alternating exhibits, the MAK shows positions of applied and contemporary art, architecture, design and new media. The reciprocal relationships between these areas are continuously thematised. The multi-layered objectives of the MAK allow for various points of access, provide new perspectives for the consideration of historical contexts and again and again offer outlooks onto artistically and socially relevant future developments.

THE FLAK TOWER AT ARENBERGPARK
The flak towers, which were built always in pairs in Berlin, Hamburg, and Vienna between 1941 and ‘45, are among the largest air-raid defense and protection buildings worldwide. In Vienna, six flak towers were erected to form a kind of protective triangle around St. Stephen’s Cathedral. In all three cities, these high-rise bunkers or blockhouses were built by POWs, forced and foreign laborers.

GUIDED TOURS
From May to November every Sunday at 3 p.m.
The weekly tours (in German) focus on the genesis of the flak tower, its original designation as well as the exhibited parts of the MAK Collection of Contemporary Art.
