Los Angeles-based photographer Amir Zaki digitally alters Southern California suburban landscapes and architecture into fantastical
and impossible architectonic structures. He is invested in rendering architecture sculpturally, creating ineffectual relics.
Zakis project addresses the problematic of photographically representing the improbable (often towards the misapprehension
of the potentially possible), de-spatializing the viewer and tweaking temporality. Zaki characterizes his work as subtle,
disorienting and quiet, while committed to the mundane.
At the Geymüllerschlössel, a jewel of Biedermeier architecture in Viennas Pötzleinsdorf neighborhood, the MAK shows
furniture from the Empire and Biedermeier periods, old Viennese clocks from the collection of Franz Sobek, and interventions
by contemporary artists and designers.
With a unique artistic intervention Donald Judd managed to blend the different stylistic worlds of the Baroque, Rococo, Classicism
and Minimalism. Taking on a central position here is the Porcelain Chamber from the Palais Dubsky in Brno, one of the first
rooms ever designed in European porcelain.
