Demonstrator 5: Space Enabler Paradocks


Paradocks illustrate the potential of co-creation and collaboration for new creative business models. The Packhaus in Marxergasse, currently in use as commercial real estate, is a model project for realizing af fordable workspaces in the city. What work patterns arise in the context of New Work, what do rooms look like where in communal ideas and projects are developed, collected, and promulgated? Team Paradocks invites VIENNA BIENNALE visitors to explore the potential of new work with a creative journey.

In context of the exhibition CityFactory: New Work. New Design.

The StadtFabrik [City factory], a research laboratory for new fields within the creative industries, will explore new cultures of production and work in the context of the VIENNA BIENNALE 2017: Robots. Work. Our Future. Six demonstrators within the city and in the sweeping exhibition at the MA K make visions of new fields of work in the digital future tangible from a design perspective: Scenarios of new creative work, new social work, and new sustainable work will be presented by means of the demonstrators and ca. 20 positions by international design studios. The City Factory demonstrators invite active participation. As interventions and concepts for “New Design,” they showcase the unused resources that ar e to be found in the city and future modes of alternative production and consumption.
