MAK Design Lab. Digital Literacy and Concepts of the Commons

An exhibition by the VIENNA BIENNALE 2017

In cooperation with Biennale curators and the IDRV - Institute of Design Research Vienna, the MAK is working on an exhibition about key developments in the sphere of work: sharing work with digital machines; creative work and category-spanning co-creativity; prosocial work, including working for the commons ("commoning"); sustainable work, particularly as regards the battle against climate change and the reduction of our ecological footprint.

Beyond this, the MAK DESIGN LAB, newly opened in 2014 on the occasion of the MAK's 150-year jubilee, will be developed further for the Vienna Biennale 2017: An introduction to Digital Modernity will offer an overview of the main topics of digitalization and about possible long-term solutions. Against a backdrop of the essential activities of daily living, a parcourse through the MAK DESIGN LAB will put up for discussion new values relevant for the future of work and also consumption, such as fairness, sharing, caring and appreciation, repairing, slow consumption, and "prosuming." This is intended to foster not only people's digital literacy, but expand individuals' scope of decision-making and agency in Digital Modernity.

The MAK wants these projects to serve as an inspiration for leveraging Europe's diversity with the possibilities offered by digitalization to bring about resource-efficient quality growth-the goal being sustainable human empowerment.
