The University of Applied Arts Celebrates its 150th Birthday

A spawning ground for many venerable creators, the Universität für Angewandte Kunst (University of Applied Arts) – or Angewandte for short – is celebrating its 150th birthday, looking back while looking forward with the exhibition Ästhetik der Veränderung (Aesthetic of Change), a two-part show.

Part one has its eye on the past, illuminating the Angewandte’s rich history with over 400 objects from their collection alongside MAK exhibits and private loans, representing the development and influence of the talents who walked their halls as students or teachers, including Gustav Klimt and Oskar Kokoschka, architects Zaha Hadid and Paolo Piva or graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister.

Curated by Peter Weibel, part two focuses on future developments in art and science. Virtual installations and architectural elements present an interactive experience, aiming to challenge ideas of the future. May the next 150 years be as successful as the past.

Dec 15-Apr 15, MAK. 1.,Stubenring 5, mak.at
