Conversation Piece: Dinner for One

With the psychiatrist and initiator of the platform against loneliness Dr. Karin Gutiérrez Lobos
iCalTue, 20.12.2022 7 pm8 pm
Please registerConversation Piece: Dinner for One When we celebrate, we celebrate being together, together. Christmas, which we often think of as “the big celebration,” is for many of us, however, also the “celebration of loneliness,” when we become especially painfully aware of being alone. We are social beings. Contact with others is of existential importance. Avoiding loneliness is a survival characteristic of the human being—based in our evolution,” according to the Vienna psychiatrist and neurologist Karin Gutiérrez-Lobos. We will also talk with the expert about the current concern revolving around the loneliness of a young generation, as well as about how important the feeling of fellowship is and how we can engage ourselves as a society on its behalf. We also consider whether and how museums can and should become places that counter isolation.
 
We need to talk! The MAK starts the new art education format Conversation Pieces. We will speak with artists, activists, scientists, and personalities from various fields about select objects from the MAK Collection. Conversation Pieces is dedicated to themes like diversity, feminism, participation or loneliness, symbiotic bodies, racism in collections, planet care, and much more. We use the MAK as a polyphonic place for the exchange of ideas and to engage in various sociopolitical discourses and problems that enable new perspectives on an extraordinary collection. Conversation Pieces can be understood as an impetus to make widespread pictorial worlds and narratives visible and to critically question them by talking about them together.

Music is an essential element of celebration. It exhilarates and changes everything. The revelers listen, dance, place themselves in the limelight, drift, or forget themselves and the world. On the occasion of the THE FEST exhibition, we are inviting Electric Indigo to talk about music and her work. The music producer, DJ, and founder of the network platform female:pressure has been transforming spaces around the world with electronic music for the last 30 years and will spend an evening in the MAK talking about her experience as a musician in the context of celebrations.

SONJI ist ein junges Modelabel, das mit gestrickten Designs das stereotypische Bild von Strickmode herausfordert. im April 2021 gegründet, strickt die Künstlerin zeitlose und einzigartige Objekte, die in Form von Kleidung getragen oder als Designelemente aus der Zusammenarbeit mit anderen Kreativen entstehen. In einer Zeit, in der Kleidung als austauschbar wahrgenommen wird und Stricken als altmodisch, setzt das experimentelle Stricklabel ein Statement. SONJI’s Designs, die von ihr allein gefertigt werden, versuchen sich keinen Limits zu beugen und fusionieren Tradition mit Modernem. 
 
Der Wunsch, Objekte zu kreieren, die aufgrund ihrer Herstellung und Herkunft wertgeschätzt werden, war die Motivation ein Label zu gründen. Im Rahmen des Formats Open Häkeln gibt die Designerin Einblicke in ihre Arbeit und spricht mit Emilie Heintschel von (young)MAK über Ihren Zugang zu Modedesign.

Please registerConversation Piece: Radikale Zärtlichkeit
On Valentine’s Day this year, we will speak with the journalist and author Şeyda Kurt on the themes of monogamy and capitalism. The author of Radikale Zärtlichkeit – Warum Liebe politisch ist questions the conventions and traditional relationships within which we experience and bestow love. This is because the ways in which we can shape intimate time spent with one another extend far beyond romantic, monogamous love with the capital purchasing power of several million roses. We warmly invite you to discover the diversity and the political dimension of love with a Conversation Piece in the MAK!
