Otto Prutscher
Otto Prutscher (1880–1949) was an architect and designer, an exhibition designer, teacher, and member of all the important arts and crafts movements—from the Secession to the Werkbund.
 
Prutscher was one of the first students of the Vienna School of Arts and Crafts. Being taught by Josef Hoffmann and the painter Franz Matsch clearly left its mark on Prutscher’s designs: this is evident in both their high-quality draftsmanship and their constant alignment with prevailing architectural trends.
 
70 years after Prutscher’s death, this exhibition explores his complex creative work and his role in the development of Viennese Modernism. The show was inspired by the collector Hermi Schedlmayer’s generous gift of 139 designs, objects, and furniture by Prutscher.

The Format WEDNESDAYS at the MAK

These dialogue-focused guided tours of the current exhibitions or on collection-specific topics are followed by a deeper conversation at the restaurant Salonplafond im MAK. WEDNESDAYS at the MAK takes place at 3 p.m. on every 3rd Wednesday of the month (except July, August, and December).
 

Practical Info

Guided tour through the exhibition, followed by further discussion at the restaurant Salonplafond im MAK.
