Curator-Guided Tour with Janina Falkner, Neue Lernkonzepte, MAK
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.
Janina Falkner is a curator at the MAK – Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna where she has been working since 2007. She is head of the field New Concepts for Learning. Until 2017 one of her various responsibilities was working for the MAK Contemporary Art Collection, e.g., as a curator of the exhibition series NEW LOOK (2012–2013) and as a co-curator of the exhibition ich weiß nicht [I don’t know]—Growing Relations between Things (2017). 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. Focusing on design-based and artistic approaches to forms of education, she combines curatorial work with the development of new concepts for learning.
