The MAK FUTURE LAB is a creative laboratory founded by the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art. Through workshops, lectures,
panel discussions, and other formats the MAK FUTURE LAB generates interdisciplinary contributions to a humane shaping and
utilization of Digital Modernity. It positions design, architecture, and fine art as driving forces of socially, ecologically,
culturally, and economically sustainable market economy models. Through diverse cooperations, it networks these creative sectors
with the fields of science, research, business, and politics. The MAK FUTURE LAB aspires to develop both holistic orientation
models and strategies for the commons inspired by such models, as well as concrete, innovative business ideas for the future.
