Towards a Circular Society

MAK Works on Paper Room

In the context of the VIENNA BIENNALE FOR CHANGE 2021, the exhibition DIGITAL & CIRCULAR: Towards a Circular Society will be presented at the MAK. The main focus is placed on a spectacular research project which was initiated by internationally renowned social ecologist Associate Professor Helmut Haberl (Institute of Social Ecology, BOKU, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna) and analyses the material stock in Austria with so far unmatched precision. The two design studios EOOS NEXT and Process present the results of this research in a spacious installation to a wide audience. In parallel to this focus project, brain storming took place on which digital approaches will be able to promote the implementation of circular society. Here the results are displayed on nine presentation boards with content and graphic design by Christian Schienerl, graphic designer and book author.

Against the background of the exhibition DIGITAL & CIRCULAR, the MAK has organized a MAK FUTURE LAB to debate approaches for a digitally supported transformation towards circular society. A top-class panel will discuss, among others, the following questions: Which primary systemic change is needed for a circular society? How can we prevent the great transformation of economy and society from leading to an enormous additional accumulation of material? In which areas would circular economy be particularly important? Which would be the three most urgent digital innovations to lend key importance to biological and technical cycles? How can we accelerate the transition from glass consumers to transparent cycle-oriented companies by means of digital innovations? How can we as a society learn circular thinking in the best and fastest way? How can we live circular society in everyday life and how should human-machine-interfaces be designed to optimally use the power of innovation for this purpose?
