21er Haus Opening
The 21er Haus was built in 1958 by the Austrian architect Karl Schwanzer (1918-1975) as a pavilion or temporary showroom for the Universal Exhibition in Brussels. The architectural structure of the pavilion seemed to be floating. The building was conceived in the lightweight construction mode, [more] with its upper storey, measuring 40 by 40 metres, resting exclusively on four buttresses. In 1958, Schwanzer received the Grand Prix d’Architecture for his visionary and technologically innovative design. Fritz Wotruba was commissioned with the monumental figural relief to be installed in front of the pavilion. The building served as an exhibition hall for the Museum of Modern Art until its collection was moved to the Museum of Modern Art - Ludwig Foundation in Vienna’s new MuseumsQuartier in late 2001. The 21er Haus was finally incorporated into the Belvedere in the early summer of 2002.
The 21er Haus is to be understood as a place of artistic production, reception, and reflection. The focus is on Austrian art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and its embedding in an international context. The Belvedere’s holdings, which will be given a permanent presence in a specially designated part of the building, will serve as a basis for research and exhibition activities. Relying on the Belvedere’s collection as a starting point, the programme, with its various formats, is meant to build a bridge between the museum’s modern architecture and contemporary art, thereby pursuing multidisciplinary and socially analytical approaches. Thematically focused temporary displays and corresponding monographic positions will concentrate on the numerous and ever more significant interrelationships among artists.
The 21er Haus Logo, the communication design and the first publications are created by Christof Nardin/bueronardin, who is also responsible for the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK festival CI. The tradition, the beginning of the 20er Haus and the archtitecture inspired Nardin for the new design identity of the museum.
We are looking forward to this new start and the opening exhibition!

A wonderful festival weekend has begun!
Yesterday we sounded the bell for a wonderful festival weekend! This Saturday will be sweetened up by Asian delicacies, a perfect place for children, eco-friendly inventions and elegant design solutions.
The day can be kicked-off with a visit at the Wiener Werkstätten [more] at the 18th district; afterwards we can head off to the 2nd district where Tapessier Telliez and Beza Projekt from Poland will be presenting a baroque yet futuristic swing, Hermann Trebsche will be telling us Viennese design stories at Ballons & Ballons and the German-UK based design studio PostlerFerguson will be bringing back to life Café Sonja, an abandoned Viennese coffee house. After we have been introduced to the latest trends of garden architecture at Verdarium, we can drop by at Odeon where windows will have something to say.
Marinelligasse at the 2nd district is the place to be for tonight: Design students will be presenting some outstanding projects at the Debut Exhibition; Projekt stadtpark will be showing us how urban farming works and Hauer Rumo will dedicate their presentation to wild animals in urban surroundings. One of today's main topics will be social design: Florian Rainer and Michael Fetz will be showing the results of their cooperation with Caritas Vienna, focusing on youth poverty and homelessness. Supported by the neighborhood community and a local youth centre, Esterni, a design studio from Italy will try to improve life quality around Volkert market. For those who prefer to escape from reality we highly recommend to visit the presentation of Wanderland-Hinterland where you will be delving into the magical world of a walk-in book. Last but not least, Zachl & Hanserl will let the chips fall!

Ideenwettbewerb Marke Österreich
Im Rahmen der Veranstaltung werden alle Briefmarken-Entwürfe präsentiert und der Begriff der „Marke“ in seiner Doppelbedeutung diskutiert. Eine ExpertInnenrunde geht der Frage nach, wie Österreich als „Design-Marke“ funktioniert. Wie sehr kann Design das „Nation Branding“ mitprägen? Und wie schlägt man die Brücke
von den großen GestalterInnen- Namen der Vergangenheit zu den Talenten der Zukunft?
Im Anschluss an die Diskussion wird die Siegermarke des Wettbewerbs prämiert. Diese wird auch im Rahmen des Sondermarkenprogramms der Österreichischen Post AG 2012 realisiert.
Danach bitten „Die Presse“ und die Post AG zum Flying Buffet.
Bitte um Anmeldung unter email@example.com
Wer mit seiner Einschätzung, welche Marke am 4.10. prämiert wird, richtig liegt, hat die Chance eine NESPRESSO Kaffemaschine zu gewinnen. Der Gewinner/die Gewinnerin wird schriftlich verständigt.

The Big Festival Party
Since already seven years KEN HAYAKAWA, born 1982 in Salzburg, is not only busy with his frequent DJ gigs in Vienna, but also with producing. While early productions stood under the influence of 'atmospheric spirit', the trend now goes to 'clubfloor'. First releases with 'Vektion Musik', 'Frosty Minimal', 'FLEXschallplatten', 'Flash' are to be continued...
„Beats are straighter and more present, arrangements clearer and more trendy – without anyhow forgetting the precision of sounds on top, behind and beside.“
KEN HAYAKAWA & LUMA.LAUNISCH like mixing the world upside down. Inspired by Cyrus Teed's concept of the Hollow Earth theory and Franz Werfel's utopian fantasy, they created their live-show 'INNENWELTKOSMOS' with a reversed reality. Perceive, absorb, evolve – everything with a multidimensional stage show of music and projections.
Djane JOJA (Johanna Mayr-Keber) is a student of architecture in vienna and started her music career already some years ago. Since two years she has her own, weekly radioshow on 98.3 superfly.fm. For Joja music is like an international and transboundary language, what she expresses perfactly with her diversity of styles: from dubstep and future fantasy metal to (tech-)house, Hip Hop and dessen roots…
Berlin-based, Swiss-born QUARION (aka Ianeq) started his musiccareer with HipHop MC samples and created eclectic techno-house tracks under the synonym Enterplay. At the moment he's busy with renewing and mixing already influential house and techno-tracks.
GEORGE FITZGERALD first came to prominence with his “Don’t You” cut on Scuba’s Sub:stance mix. Fast-forward a year and he had his first release on Hotflush. Effortlessly fusing garage & house-warmed melodies with clipped 2-step patterns and big bottom ends, he is one of the finest young producers to emerge in the UK bass music scene in recent times.
The VJ collective #WEMAKEVISUALS was founded in 2007 by gaffaa and keinponny in Burgenland/ Austria. They are working with highly diverse genres, from club and cyberpunk to anarchy. #wemakevisuals describe their work as clear minimal graphics with political influences.
Established as a classical design studio in 2005 by Michael Zagorski and Markus Raffelsberger, VALENCE very soon turned into one of the most popular VJ Teams in Austria. Valence generates with fantastic, hybrid mixes, analogue and digital technics highly contrasty visual storylines.
