The building on the Stubenring, the so-called “Ferstel Wing,” is celebrating its birthday! In the course of this, many things will be opened up to all for the first time: from the former office of the directorate, which opens its doors for creative discussions, to a new digital guide—with open access to interesting facts and insights into the hidden. On this day, art and digital can be applied in the truest sense of the word and some collection objects can even be used to approach the history of the museum in an unusual way.
Presents for everyone!
The MAK gives you and everyone else the new digital MAK Guide. We invite you to join us for a celebratory launch! 150 special birthday surprises await everyone who comes to the MAK and opens the MAK Guide.
Available from 4 November at guide.MAK.at.
Friendly Takeover: Entry requested
5–7 p.m.: creative chats for all
after 7 p.m.: in a large group with Lilli Hollein, General Director MAK
Where is the MAK heading while it remains where it is on the Stubenring? What should remain as it is, what can be experimented with, what has to change?—For everyone who is interested in the history of the MAK, would like to talk to us, and would like to participate in a creative discussion about the future.
