Das Glas der Architekten. Wien 1900-1937
The exhibition THE GLASS OF THE ARCHITECTS: Vienna 1900–1937 focuses on a fascinating chapter of Austrian craft: designs by young architects exercised an epochal influence on the development of art glass in Viennese Modernism. After its successful showing at LE STANZE DEL VETRO in Venice in 2016, this impressive exhibition will be presented in the MAK at the beginning of 2017. The exhibition with its 300 pieces of glassware—curated by Rainald Franz (Curator, MAK Glass and Ceramics Collection) and realized in cooperation with LE STANZE DEL VETRO—offers for the first time a comprehensive overview of the period from the final decades of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy up until the end of the First Republic.
THE GLASS OF THE ARCHITECTS: Vienna 1900–1937 for the most part presents objects from the MAK Glass and Ceramics Collection, which owes its international reputation primarily to its magnificent glassware ensemble from around the turn of the century and to its outstanding inventory of Art Nouveau glass. The MAK is presenting the exhibition in temporal and spatial proximity to the exhibition GLASS OF THE EMPIRE AND BIEDERMEIER ERAS: From the MAK Collection and the Christian Kuhn Glass Collection (MAK Exhibition Hall, 1 February – 17 April 2017), thus—in parallel with handiCRAFT: Traditional Skills in the Digital Age (MAK Exhibition Hall, 14 December 2016 – 9 April 2017)—drawing attention to glass as a significant material for craft and design in very different epochs.
