Opening VIENNA BIENNALE FOR CHANGE 2019

BRAVE NEW VIRTUES. Shaping Our Digital World

Brave visions on handling artificial intelligence and new technologies, on shaping innovative (urban) ways of work, on new ways of living...

On the basis of which values can the utopia of an economically and socially just and fair as well as ecologically sustainable future become reality? “With the possibilities of art, design, and architecture, the VIENNA BIENNALE will contribute to shaping a future based on values,” Christoph Thun-Hohenstein, General Director of the MAK and initiator and head of the VIENNA BIENNALE, states. Artists, designers, and architects from all continents will take a stance towards the future we really want. The VIENNA BIENNALE FOR CHANGE: BRAVE NEW VIRTUES. Shaping Our Digital World will focus on brave visions on handling artificial intelligence and new technologies, on shaping innovative (urban) ways of work, on new ways of living (together), and on responsible consumption.

CIRCULAR FLOWS: The Toilet Revolution!

An installation by EOOS / Official Austrian Contribution to the XXII Triennale di Milano 2019

It is one of the most pressing environmental issues of our time: the contamination of our water bodies with nitrogen.

It is one of the most pressing environmental issues of our time: the contamination of our water bodies with nitrogen. The Viennese design studio EOOS has developed the revolutionary prototype of a toilet for urine separation (Urine Trap) which offers a systemic design solution in the battle against the mostly disregarded global nitrogen problem. Commissioned and curated by the MAK, the project presents the Urine Trap in a toilet developed together with LAUFEN embedded into a multimedia installation illustrating the ecological interplay of coastal waters, wastewater systems, and agriculture. The exhibition by EOOS shows how design can contribute to repairing the nitrogen cycle and hence to protecting the ecological boundaries of our planet. The foundation of the project was developed over years in research conducted by “Eawag: The Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology of the ETH Domain” (Switzerland) for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The contribution was awarded the „Ape Nera,“ the Black Bee Award of the Triennale.

About the exhibition Pattern Recognition

Kunstfabrik Groß Siegharts Gallery and Project Space
Opening: Saturday, 1 June 2019, 7 p.m.
Exhibition: 2 June - 14 July 2019

How is the current debate about gender equality reflected in the choice of artistic techniques, materials, and production methods? The exhibition takes a closer look at patterns as a characteristic of textiles. Beyond their role in the design process, they are also analysed and explored in their psychological aspects, as a behaviour pattern, and in their function as an information carrier. 

The pattern itself becomes a material, a signifier that speaks of the situation of female and male artists today. In their recent works exhibited at the Kunstfabrik gallery the artists address challenges related to gender equality, which they are confronted with on both a social and personal level.
 
Over the course of a semester, students of the University of Applied Arts Vienna (TransArts – Transdisciplinary Art Department) also explored historical and contemporary forms of textile art production. Technology and industry, architecture and language clearly reveal their inherent references to textiles. The exhibition will showcase the students’ new ideas and artistic approaches in this context.
 
The objective is to generate a reflective impression that also points to future scenarios. With its ambivalent connections to industrial, technological, intimate, traditional, and physical realms, textile craftsmanship offers an ideal context for such a discourse. This is also conveyed through the site of the exhibition: the Kunstfabrik – a former ribbon weaving factory, which is now complemented with a historical textile museum – is a fitting platform for investigations into artistic production processes in terms of gender-specific affinities in the application of technologies.
 
Participating artists: Elena Apollonio, Oscar Cueto, Judith Fegerl, Lisa Großkopf, Kurt Hofstetter, Kaja Joo, Jakob Kirchweger, Luzie Kork, Marlene Lahmer, Christian Kosmas Mayer, Julian Palacz, Laura Schlagintweit, Veronika Schubert, Kathrin Stumreich, Kai Trausenegger

SPACE AND EXPERIENCE

Architecture for Better Living

Guided Tour through the exhibition

Architecture as design is always an expression of social and cultural structures, codes, and values. The focus of SPACE AND EXPERIENCE is on the question of what constitutes “better living”—in particular regarding materiality, ecology, design of atmospheres, participation, hospitality, design of communities, and perspective—and how architecture matters here. The exhibition is a cooperation with Wienerberger and—on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Wienerberger—will be complemented by a presentation on the cultural-historical significance of Wienerberger. Three expert meetings and a symposium have already taken place in the run-up to the exhibition.

Curator-Guided Tour with Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler, mischer′traxler studio
In the context of the redesign of the MAK DESIGN LAB

The reinstallation of the MAK DESIGN LAB positions design as a motor of sustainable change. Objects from the MAK Collection are placed into a new context and are positioned at the interface between everyday life, society, digitalization, and climate change based on multi-faceted perspectives.

The designers Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler founded their design studio in Vienna in 2009. Using the conflict between craftwork and technology, mischer′traxler studio designs objects, production processes, interactive installations, and more. The design duo always embeds their experimental and conceptual approaches in the given context. Works and projects by the design studio, which has received numerous national and international awards, are regularly shown in international exhibitions and can be found in permanent museum collections, such as at the MAK, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, and the Art Institute Chicago.

In the exhibition UNCANNY VALUES: Artificial Intelligence & You, the MAK is exploring one of the most important subjects of the coming decades, one that has significant consequences for all areas of our lives: artificial intelligence (AI). In order to understand, help shape, and sensibly implement the potentials of artificial intelligence and the associated technologies, we need a new cultural sensibility, and this exhibition seeks to stimulate that. Installations in various media by 18 international artists and designers spread out in a generous parcours enhanced by examples and scenarios from current applications of AI.

The Robots Are Coming

In context of the wienXtra-Ferienspiel / Workshop for children aged 6 to 13

We will find inspiration in the exhibitions of the VIENNA BIENNALE and then try to develop a new guise for Siri and friends …

Tue, 2 – Fri, 5 July and Tue, 9 – Fri, 12 July 2019
every day 10:15 a.m.–12:30 p.m.


What is artificial intelligence (AI) really? What can it do? How does it work, and above all: what does it look like? In fact, AI has no physical form—and yet it has many: it is in our cars, in our phones, in our freezers. Together we will think about how artificial intelligence manifests itself in our everyday lives and what it might look like in the future.

We will find inspiration in the exhibitions of the VIENNA BIENNALE and then try to develop a new guise for Siri and friends … A supercomputer, a speaking closet, or just a tiny chip for your head?

She coordinated the VIENNNA BIENNALE 2017 and is in charge of the MAK FUTURE LAB. Currently, she is in particular responsible for discursive opportunities and participative strategies at the MAK.

Event series in three parts

13 September 2019: Work 4.0: About the future of work, LENTOS Art Museum Linz
22 October 2019: Artificial Intelligence (AI) … and where are we?, CoSA – Center of Science Activities, Universalmuseum Joanneum, Graz

Brave new world? Do you look towards all technical innovations relaxed andhappily? Or do you look at them with suspicion, and perhaps with worries regarding the future? The digital age raises many questions; Utopia and end-time scenarios are then often not so different from one another.

The museum space becomes a space for discussion: Well-known experts discuss the digital future and the transformation of society with you. A chair is free for your questions, statements, wishes, and hopes. Siegfried Steinlechner from the ORF leads us through the conversations.

YONA FRIEDMAN – Spatial Visions

An exhibition of the Austrian Frederick and Lillian Kiesler Private Foundation

Yona Friedmans Konzepte von Architektur sind eng mit der Dynamik von sozialen Strukturen und der Veränderlichkeit der Bedürfnisse von NutzerInnen verbunden.

Yona Friedman’s concepts of architecture are closely linked to the dynamics of social structures and the variability of the users’ needs. These topics which he has emphasized from the beginning of his work have gained even more importance in present times with the current developments in migration. It is due to his own history as a migrant that his ideas and his engagement for deeply human architecture and society are based on existential experience. Being both radical and future-oriented, Friedman’s “utopies réalisables,” have made a great impact in the context of the architectural avant-garde. The presentation will show a selection of them.

SPACE AND EXPERIENCE

Architecture for Better Living

Guided Tour through the exhibition

Architecture as design is always an expression of social and cultural structures, codes, and values. The focus of SPACE AND EXPERIENCE is on the question of what constitutes “better living”—in particular regarding materiality, ecology, design of atmospheres, participation, hospitality, design of communities, and perspective—and how architecture matters here. The exhibition is a cooperation with Wienerberger and—on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Wienerberger—will be complemented by a presentation on the cultural-historical significance of Wienerberger. Three expert meetings and a symposium have already taken place in the run-up to the exhibition.
