(financed via the EU’s Interreg Danube Transnational Programme) At the heart of this two-and-a-half-year EU project (2017–2019) lies art nouveau architecture in the Danube basin. Four working
groups explore topics surrounding aspects of urban planning, problems of heritage conservation, restoration measures, as well
as the digital agenda. As one of seven participating institutions from across Eastern Europe, the MAK has been given the opportunity
to shine a light on its valuable and wide-ranging holdings from this creative period from a broader scientific perspective,
as well as to present these holdings to the public. Alongside other significant institutions that focus on architecture in
Austria, the MAK has assumed a central role in pooling the results of this project.

The MAK Library and Works on Paper Collection is one of the largest and oldest museum libraries with a focus on applied art.
Alongside classic library functions, the collection is also devoted to artistic aspects of the pictorial in all possible variants
as well as to the initiation of a reappraisal of art production manifested in paper form.
