MAK Austrian Museum for Applied Arts / Contemporary Art

The Art Nouveau World Day was launched in 2013 to commemorate the day when the architects Antoni Gaudí and Ödön Lechner died. Museums and organizations across Europe contribute exhibitions, photography competitions, symposia, and readings to this international event. To celebrate this year’s Art Nouveau World Day, the MAK invites you to participate in special tours of the Permanent Collection Vienna 1900 and the exhibition BOOK COVERS OF THE WIENER WERKSTÄTTE.

Art nouveau and its artistic creations are firmly established in the history of the museum’s collection. Artists like Otto Wagner, Josef Hoffmann, and Koloman Moser played a crucial part in forming the character of the collections. From furniture and works in metal and ceramic to drawing, their artistic oeuvres permeate all aspects of the MAK Collection: a diversity in which the idea of the Gesamtkunstwerk or total work of art becomes manifest and tangible for visitors to the museum.

All guided tours are free with a valid MAK ticket.

Photo contest

Movement in Art Nouveau
In order to celebrate and promote Europe’s art nouveau heritage and in particular its member cities, the Réseau Art Nouveau Network organizes a photography contest as part of the Art Nouveau World Day.

This fifth edition will be dedicated to the theme of movement in Art Nouveau, a characteristic feature of this genre, as it was of the fin-de-siècle period in which it appeared.

Submission deadline: 6 June 2017 at midnight
