2018 is a big year for anniversaries and also the European Year of Cultural Heritage. The MAK will be honoring three giants
of Viennese Modernism: Otto Wagner, Koloman Moser, and—with a virtual reality project—Gustav Klimt. We will be celebrating
the 300th birthday of the Vienna Porcelain Manufactory and seducing you into a world of beauty with the exhibition Sameister
& Walsh. Aside from a number of additional exhibitions, the presentation of our collection remains an ongoing festival of
the applied arts. Our motto is: vision applied! This implies proximity to life and practical usefulness. But only by revealing the vision behind
can we achieve our goal of both enlightening our visitors and inspiring them.

MAK in 1995 and the program designed for visiting emerging international artists and architects was launched in the same year.
