Picture books—whether for children or adults—can impressively express the different artistic tendencies through the medium of the book. During this process, the artists’ deeply impressive creativity becomes visible, which knows how to bring not only the beauty, wealth, and hope, but also the threats of our world into pictures. A selection of picture books from the 1960s to the present, for example by Sonia Delaunay, Bruno Munari, Olaf Nicolai, and Lawrence Weiner, gives an impression of this diversity. This exhibition is a continuation of the children’s book exhibitions shown at the MAK in the past. In addition to loans from the Friedrich C. Heller Collection, objects from the MAK Collection’s significant holdings will be presented.

Please registerDialog Tour with Jojo Gronostay
In the context of the (Con)temporary Fashion Showcase series, a video installation by Jojo Gronostay can be seen under the title MAGIC CANNOT CROSS THE SEA. In it, he examines the so-called sapeurs of Brazzaville (Republic of the Congo)—mostly men from precarious circumstances who wear designer suits and attribute a spiritual dimension to their apparel. They make the streets their catwalk with seemingly choreographed movements. At the same time, Gronostay examines the Eurocentric conception of fashion upon which the historical costume collections of museums of applied arts like the MAK are based by superimposing museum objects onto the video recordings.
 
Starting with the 2022 season, the Geymüllerschlössel will become a discursive space dedicated to the phenomenon of fashion as a (CON)TEMPORARY FASHION SHOWCASE. This Biedermeier gem, which is open only on weekends, will thus become the long-awaited refuge for fashion enthusiasts in the Austrian museum landscape. Temporary exhibitions, presentations, and performances aimed at a (socially) diverse audience will be dedicated to virulent fashion topics with thematically linked events such as talks, symposia, workshops, and book presentations and will explore content-related questions about the essence of fashion.
