Or a New Joy into the World
For generations of Austrian designers, the nature and meaning of designed surfaces has been an evolving dialogue about morality, revolution and truth. For this exhibition a new generation was challenged to contribute to this Vienna born discourse about “ornament and crime” by engaging with a series of everyday decorative acts. Activities like cake decoration, tattooing, hairdressing and flower arranging are vernaculars that stand outside high design culture.
Featuring DANKLHAMPEL's Sundaycake.
Opening: Tuesday, 28 September 2010, 8 p.m.
