Die Künstlerin Kiki Furlan macht die Nadel zum Pinsel, Faden, Stoffe und Wolle werden zu ihren Farbflächen. Themen wie Wahrnehmung, Realität, Traum und Kindheit verfilzt, verstrickt und verwebt sie in ihren Bildern. Im Gespräch mit Mia Höll von (young)MAK erläutert Kiki Furlan ihren außergewöhnlichen Zugang zum textilen Arbeiten über die abstrakte Malerei. Im Anschluss können Teilnehmer*innen verschiedene Filztechniken erproben. 

(young)MAK lädt zu der offenen diskursiven Workshop-Serie Open Häkeln ein! Textile Handwerkstechniken – im ersten Schritt geht es ums Häkeln – werden erlernt und angewandt, um miteinader in Verbindung zu treten. Textiler Diskurs, Technik und Materialität verknüpfen bzw. verhäkeln sich. Künstler*innen, Denker*innen, Wissenschaftler*innen sowie Handwerkstechniker*innen werden als Impulsgeber*innen eingeladen, um ihre Ansätze im Rahmen von kurzen Vorträgen, Performances oder Präsentationen als künstlerische, inhaltliche und technische Impulse sowie als Inspiration bzw. Hilfestellung weiterzugeben. Die Besucher*innen sind herzlich eingeladen, an Diskussionen, Geschichten, Tratsch und Plaudereien anzuknüpfen und vor allem mitzuhäkeln!

Conversation Pieces
 
We need to talk! The MAK is starting the new art education format Conversation Pieces on 4 October 2022. We will speak with artists, activists, scientists, and personalities from various communities about select objects from the MAK Collection. Conversation Pieces is dedicated to themes like diversity, feminism, participation or loneliness, symbiotic bodies, racism in collections, planet care, and much more. We use the MAK as a polyphonic place for the exchange of ideas and to engage in various sociopolitical discourses and problems that enable new perspectives on an extraordinary collection.
 
Conversation Pieces can be understood as an impetus to make widespread pictorial worlds and narratives visible and to critically question them by talking about them together.

on the exhibition PICTURE BOOK ART: The Book as Artistic Medium
iCalTue, 29.11.2022 6.30 pm8 pm
Please registerTalk by Guest Curator and Collector Friedrich C. Heller and Ursula Brandstätter
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.
