In soccer, a box-to-box player is the name given to a player who operates between both penalty boxes. And while Itai Margula was and still is involved in planning such sporting and cultural projects as the Generali Arena in Vienna and the Donauparkstadion in Linz, the key area of activity of the architect, designer, and exhibition designer is the development of museum presentations and individual design solutions. The excursion begins with a virtual guided tour of the exhibition “Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and other Treasures” in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna and the Fondazione Prada in Milan, which was curated by Wes Anderson, Juman Malouf, and Jasper Sharp and scenographically presented by Margula Architects, and ends (physically) in the nearby MAK, where the materials trolley will be presented as a central educational tool of the display collection. En route, the participants will also visit Grünangergasse, where a residential building is home to a post-war synagogue, which is not otherwise accessible to the public and contains a mobile Torah shrine based on traditional written descriptions of the Ark of the Covenant. Coffin, trolley, shrine – three boxes that explore the idea of spatial presentation in the spectrum between sacred and museum applications. A tour put together as a compact package. A rare opportunity.
Please be at the meeting point 15 minutes before the start of the tour.
