MAK - Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art
The MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art is one of the most important museums of its kind worldwide. Founded as the “Imperial Royal Austrian Museum of Art and Industry” in 1863, today’s museum—with its unique collection of applied arts and as a first-class address for contemporary art—can boast an incomparable identity. Originally established as an exemplary source collection, today’s MAK Collection continues to stand for an extraordinary union of applied art, design, contemporary art and architecture.
The MAK, which defines itself as a laboratory of societal knowledge, is a place of collecting, research, preservation, education, and interactive learning, as well as a site of human encounters, interaction, and intercreativity. Thanks not least to its international branches and cross-border activities, the museum is also a forum of intercultural and artistic exchange as well as of fruitful dialog with designers, artists, and architects.
