MAK – Museum für angewandte Kunst


A project by the Vienna Business Agency with its creative center departure and the MAK

In the framework of the VIENNA BIENNALE 2017, the exhibition City Factory: New Work. New Design will develop three socially relevant topics about the work of the future: new creative work and transdisciplinary co-creativity; new social work, including work for the common good (Commoning); and new sustainable work in the sense of the circular economy and innovative utilization of urban resources.

International designers and architects will develop projects for all three areas especially for the Biennale. The topics and the terms associated with them will be presented around the central objects by means of additional projects and extensive image materials, texts, and Videos.

Curated by IDRV - Institute of Design Research Vienna
