The Austrian-American architect Raimund Abraham (1933–2010) saw architecture in close connection with art, philosophy, literature, and film—an ideational interaction highlighted in the current MAK exhibition. The exhibition title, Angles and Angels, is a play on words, one that can be interpreted as conceptual and poetic. In his manifesto EYES DIGGING (New York, 2001), Abraham sketches his exploratory approach to architecture and the importance of visionary writers, philosophers, poets, theorists, and composers such as Stéphane Mallarmé, James Joyce, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and Arnold Schönberg to his architectural practice.
