Guided Tour


MAK – Österreichisches Museum für angewandte Kunst

  • Tour: 1.10.2020, 4.30pm

For the first time, the MAK is devoting a special exhibition to a historical man-made material and its role in design and cultural history. The occasion for this is the presentation of selected items from the Bakelite collection of the Viennese gallery owner Georg Kargl (1955‒2018), who was closely associated with the MAK. Kargl was not only an important protagonist in the Viennese and international art scenes and an expert on Viennese Modernism in the field of applied arts but also a great authority on and a passionate collector of Bakelite.

Dialog tour of the exhibition BAKELITE: The Georg Kargl Collection, with Rainald Franz (curator of the exhibition and of the MAK Glass and Ceramics Collection), Mladen Bizumic (artistic exhibition design) and Maroš Schmidt (Slovak Design Center).
