FUCK YOU VERY MUCH. DESIGNERS AS TROUBLEMAKERS

AUSSTELLUNG KLASSE KARTAK
im Rahmen der Vienna Design Week

Was, wenn Designer*innen Probleme nicht mehr lösen wollen? Wenn sie lieber Unruhe stiften?
Wenn sie als Antwort auf Probleme lieber neue Probleme anbieten? Wenn sie Pessimist*innen sind oder Zyniker*innen? Wenn sie darauf aus sind, allen anderen das Spiel zu verderben und ihnen in die Suppe zu spucken?
Die Ausstellung der Klasse Kartak behandelt das Thema »The Designer as Troublemaker/Party-Pooper« und zeigt Projekte in einer Mischung aus statischen, interaktiven und audiovisuellen Medien, Performances, Interventionen und Installationen.

Mit Arbeiten von: Dominik Einfalt, Noah von Stietencron, Mirjam Lingitz, Sebastian Lou, Lena Wenzel, Linda Reitmeier, Maria Rudakova, Maximilian Prag, Lisa-Marie Leitgeb, Marlene Kager, Andreas Palfinger, Julia Winkler,

Marion Müller, Emma Kürz, Ludwig Pfeiffer, Hilal Avci

LARISSA FALK wins the RONDO fashion award 2021!

We are very pleased to announce this year’s winner of the RONDO Fashion Award by Der Standard!
Congratulations to Larissa Falk student of Modeklasse who convinced the jury with her graduation collection ALIENATION. In her graduation collection, Falk questions female body images and subverts the traces of the male gaze with her designs. Historically, the way in which female nudity is revealed has been subject to constant change in many cultures. The graduate explores the question around the fetishization of the female body or individual body parts such as breasts, buttocks and “female” curves. In her collection, she presents skin uncovered and uses curves and lines to expand the contours of the female silhouette. Falk is concerned with creating new body shapes that change the female appearance and physical image. Underlying her design work is a commitment to body positivity and the belief that women of all ages should be proud to show their skin and have no shame in imperfection – a plea for the confident and self-determined wearing of clothes.

Open House 2020

At the annual Open House of the Angewandte students and lecturers provide insights into the studios, workshops and ateliers of the University of Applied Arts Vienna and provide information about the study subjects.

In December 2020, this will be done digitally for the first time, in order to give potential students the opportunity to inform themselves about studying at the Angewandte despite the current Corona regulations, and thus to reach an even larger audience.

Interested future students outside of Vienna will also be able to participate in the digital information event.

At the Open House, interested parties can inform themselves about all artistic studies as well as about admission and gain an impression of the colorful variety of projects, artworks and creative works at the Angewandte.

We would like to welcome all those who, despite these difficult circumstances, accompany us and inform themselves about the studies at the Angewandte in digital form.

In short video contributions, which you can access via www.dieangewandte.at/openhouse (coming soon), we will present our courses of study from Wednesday, December 9 to Thursday, December 10, 2020.

But you will still have further questions. Therefore, we invite you to the Live Chat on two dates daily at 12:00 and 16:00.

Professors and study advisors will answer everything you want to know.

Grace Wales Bonner will head the Department for Fashion Design

The British designer, who was born in London in 1992, has for years been a leading force in the field of trend-setting, theory-based and transdisciplinary fashion design. She started her own label for menswear in 2014/2015 and already won renowned fashion awards with the presentation of her first collection.

Her work explores representations of black male sexuality and identity. Bonner subsequently expanded her collection to include women’s fashion. The British designer and artist received numerous awards, most recently from the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund. In 2019, she presented her first institutional exhibition “A Time for New Dreams” in London’s Serpentine Galleries. Wales Bonner has been intensively engaged in theory, music composition, literature and history and combines European traditions with Afro-Atlantic perspectives in her works. “I’m delighted to be joining the Angewandte as head of the Fashion Design Department  and I hope to bring a unique cultural perspective to the course and the university”, says Grace Wales Bonner.

angewandte festival 2020

The Angewandte Festival will take place 23-26 June, 2020, in digital as well as public spaces and will present the manifold activities of the University of Applied Arts Vienna.

The University of Applied Arts Vienna is committed to counteracting the production conditions in the arts and cultural sectors, which are massively restricted by the current situation.

The Angewandte Festival 2020 will therefore take place and focus on alternative exhibition venues in digital and public space. Even if students, teachers and members of the university cannot, as usual, exhibit their works in the university buildings and invite participants to join discussions, debates and celebrations, we want to use the end of this challenging semester as an opportunity to produce new works and projects to be exhibited and discussed publicly. By moving this year’s Angewandte Festival into virtual spaces, we do not intend to proclaim a brave new digital world, but to react critically, awake and curious to the current situation.

Check out the festival homepage for further information: https://angewandtefestival.at/

cancelled // building better worlds through game culturalization - a lecture by kate edwards

The event is cancelled in order to curb the spread of the corona virus at an early stage!

With over 30 years of experience in digital media as a geographer and culturalization strategist, and 27+ years in games, Kate Edwards has been involved in the creation of many games, including major titles such as Halo, Fable, Age of Empires, Mass EffectCall of Duty, and many, many others.

She has seen it all when it comes to geopolitical and cultural issues that are often overlooked in content creation and can negatively affect the ability of content to be accepted overseas, and she has seen designers miss opportunities to create more robust worlds that engage the players from diverse cultural backgrounds. Kate will discuss the field of content culturalization and how it can assist game creators with building better game worldsthat account for a wider range of cultural and geopolitical considerations.

beyond the city limits - student award

Der Wettbewerb wird in Konzeption und Produktion vom Videostudio in künstlerischer und technischer Lehre betreut, die entstandenen 30 Sekunden Shorts dienen als Preclips und führen die oben beschriebene Zielgruppe zu Landing Sites, welche allgemeine Information und konkrete Hilfe zum Waldschutz anbieten.

Der Klimawandel macht es notwendig den Wald fit zu halten, Borkenkäfer und zu trockene Böden erfordern professionelle Maßnahmen. Waldbesitzer in ländlichen Gebieten wenden diese bereits an, eine andere Gruppe gilt es noch zu erreichen. Es sind private Kleinwaldbesitzer, deren summierte Flächen mehr als die Hälfte des Gesamtwaldbestandes ausmachen. Sie leben im urbanen Raum und haben nur losen Kontakt zu ihrem fernen Wald , der z. B. durch Erbschaft in ihren Besitz gekommen ist.

As the issue “SmallForest Owners” is an international matter, the KickOff will be performed in English, if required.

alumnitalk marc damm: »behind the looking glass«

Marc Damm is Senior Designer at the Vienna office of Bleed – a design consultancy with international acclaim and offices in Norway and Austria. His work is mostly settled in visual identity, branding and art direction for clients from the fields of retail, luxury, culture, arts, architecture & technology. 

Graduating in 2014 with the concept, design and publishing of his book project »Designed in Commission of …« he ever since was curious in the nature of design between personal passion and professional commission. For him, the ability to talk and reflect on design was and will be always an integral part of the discipline itself. On his further research focus he discovers design as ephemeric variability, stylised abstraction, and everyday experience. Whatever all of this may or may not has to do with japanese aesthetic philosophy, the Talking Heads, animal decomposition, organ music and the Cheshire Cat, he will refer to in his talk. Beside this Marc will tell some things about his influences, his process and shows personal work as well as brand new projects of Bleed.

graphic design and typography in motion

The Institute of Design in cooperation with the Czech Centre Vienna invites you to join the third lecture of the series “Neighbors Talk” at the University of Applied Arts Vienna on December 3, 2019 at 7pm.

The nature and form of the contemporary visuality in which the individual’s field of vision is flooded with an endless amount of visual information, challenges us to seek clever ways to make the information of such visual-based messages simple and effective.

Studio OFICINA tries to create untapped visual styles that can function on a multitude of platforms-on air, off air and online.Studio OFICINA is a pioneer of motion design in the Czech Republic. The founders include Lukáš Fišárek, Marek Cimbálník and Vlaďka Cimbálníková Jan Netušil soon after became an indispensable member of the studio. In 2016, the Mouvo Festival was established, inviting the most important representatives of this field to Prague, thereby encouraging the establishment of networks between Czech and foreign experts in the field of motion design. Workshops with teachers from abroad are held on the MouvoLab platform.

new writing manuals

The Institute of Design in cooperation with the Czech Center Vienna invites you to join the second lecture of the series “Neighbors Talk” at the University of Applied Arts Vienna on November 14, 2019 at 7pm.

Petra Dočekalová is currently writing her PhD dissertation at the Type Design and Typography studio at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design (UMPRUM) in Prague. There she focuses on script and handwriting typefaces. She studies their applications and overlap not only in the Czech context, but in the global context as well. She creates new morphologies, experimenting with the forms of individual letters and examining the possibilities of the hand as the calligrapher’s primary tool. In her script styles, she tries to actively revive the fading craft of sign painting, and to popularize the subject of cursive writing in primary and secondary schools. As part of her research, she would like to introduce a series of new writing manuals, which she hopes might replace the existing Czech writing standard that has been used in Czechia without any major changes for almost eighty years.

eccentrics in basement

The Institute of Design in cooperation with the Czech Institute Vienna invites you to join the first lecture of the series “Neighbors Talk” at the University of Applied Arts Vienna on October 17, 2019 at 7pm.

Karel Haloun-Raymond Pettibon’s Czech counterpart-created the visual identities of numerous bands of the Czech underground. In Vienna, Karel Haloun will speak about the “alternative typography” at the time of censorship in totalitarian Czechoslovakia. Karel Haloun was convinced that “beautiful typography” most often emerged when people lied, deceived or attempted to influence. That’s the reason why he became fascinated with the aesthetics of Samizdat, and specifically the visual qualities of its DIY approach: stamps, typewriter fonts, stencils, xerography, etc. His book Excentrici v přízemí (Eccentrics in Basement) reflects his results in more detail.

futures of democracy?

Design Investigations (ID2) at the Vienna Design Week

Core democratic values that we take for granted in the Western world currently seem to be increasingly under fire. Digitalization, artificial intelligence as well as the growing importance of social media are in danger of weakening the independence of political authorities. How will democracy change before this background? What kind
of influence will the factors named above have for us as citizens? Students in Design Investigations at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, under the supervision of professor Anab Jain, guest teaching assistant and political scientist Denis Maksimov, and Nikolas Heep and Stefan Zinell, will examine these questions.

lucie & luke meier will head the fashion master class

Newly appointed Chair for Fashion Design – designer duo will start work at the beginning of the new academic year.

The new heads of the Department of Fashion Design at the University of Applied Arts Vienna have been appointed: The Fashion Master Class headed by the designer duo Lucie and Luke Meier will kick off the new academic year.

Lucie and Luke Meier have headed the fashion label Jil Sander as Creative Directors in Milan, Italy since 2017. Prior to their current engagement, both have independently acquired extensive experience in the fashion industry, making quite a name for themselves. Swiss-born Lucie Meier, the daughter of an Austrian mother and a German father, following her formal training, worked as a designer for the fashion labels Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, and Dior. At Dior Lucie was chosen by Raf Simons as Head Designer for the Haute Couture and Ready-to-Wear collections in womenswear and took the role of Co-Creative Director at Dior after Simons’s departure. Canadian-born Luke Meier, whose mother is British and father Swiss, was Design Director of the fashion label Supreme in New York after his formal training and later co-founded the menswear label OAMC, of which he is currently Creative Director.

The international call for applications for the core artistic subject in the field of fashion design at the University of Applied Arts Vienna’s Institute of Design is explicitly aimed at internationally successful fashion designers. In their approach, Lucie and Luke Meier reflect on the changing role of fashion designers and the fashion industry as a whole, and seek to broaden the main areas of study to include communication and cooperation. The high appeal and fascination fashion holds for people calls for an increasingly conscious and critical approach to resources and environmental action. Furthermore, the working conditions of the people employed by the fashion industry also need to be explored. The couple follows the footsteps of Hussein Chalayan, a British designer, artist and businessman with Turkish-Cypriot roots who the University of Applied Arts bade farewell to during the last fashion show in June 2019.

angewandte festival 2019

With a completely new exhibition and event concept, the University of Applied Arts Vienna presents itself to the end of the academic year 2018/19.

The Angewandte Festival opens the institution and seeks to negotiate socio-political issues as well as artistic positions in and with the public. In the partly new premises of the Angewandte the departments and the former exhibition format “The Essence” will be extended by a diverse program under the theme Openings. In addition to different exhibition settings of all artistic departments, the Oskar Kokoschka Platz will be closed to traffic and to the stage for multidisciplinary contributions, which should encourage active participation and discussion.

With interventions, installations, exhibitions, performances, concerts, workshops, tours and screenings, the Angewandte not only shows the variety of subjects, but also the artistic and scientific practice and its processes as well as the interdisciplinary approach. The aim of the festival is to illustrate the entanglement and interaction of theory and practice, fine arts and design, research and science, to highlight problem areas of current phenomena of society and to test new fields of knowledge production.

The Show Modeklasse
The Show Modeklasse was initiated in order to enable students to present their creations within the context of a professional fashion show. The most promising talents of the Fashion Department at Angewandte – the only Austrian institution offering a university-level diploma in the field of fashion design – show their collections that have been created under the guidance of internationally renowned fashion designer and professor of the department, Hussein Chalayan. The show has become one of the biggest and most demanded fashion shows in the country. It is widely known nationally as well as internationally not only among fashion experts and has achieved excellent reputation over the years.

New event location at the University’s domicile
For the first time the fashion show will take place at the University’s own building. Only recently, in October 2018, the brand new University building opened its doors to students, teachers and staff members, allowing the University to welcome guests in the impressive in-house event hall. Hosting the annual fashion show in its own premises has been a wish for many years and can be put into action now. Students of Studio Hani Rashid at the Angewandte’s Institute of Architecture are going to develop a visionary stage design for this years’ show.

Fashion design training with top professors
Since the early 1980s the direction of the fashion class has been held by international fashion stars in high demand such as Karl Lagerfeld, Jil Sander, Vivienne Westwood, Helmut Lang, Raf Simons, Viktor & Rolf, Bernhard Willhelm or – the present head of the class – Hussein Chalayan.
Graduates of the Fashion Department have gone on to create their own labels such as Sagan Vienna, Bless, GON, Petar Petrov, Ute Ploier oder Wendy Jim, have obtained top-level positions in the Austrian and international fashion business or with renowned fashion companies such as Balenciaga, COMME des GARÇONS, JW Anderson, Lanvin, Prada, Louis Vuitton, to name only a few.

Hussein Chalayan says goodbye after 5 years
The Show Modeklasse 19 will be the last show under the direction of Hussein Chalayan as the renowned fashion designer will say goodbye to Vienna at the end of this academic year. Throughout his five years of teaching, Chalayan accompanied and supervised his students with heart and blood and exactness, enthusiasm and passion.
Since the beginning of the 1980s, the chair of the Angewandte Fashion Department has been held by internationally renowned designers such as Karl Lagerfeld, Jil Sander, Vivienne Westwood, Helmut Lang, Raf Simons, Viktor & Rolf, and Bernhard Willhelm, Chalayan’s predecessor.

Successful graduates
The Angewandte Fashion Department is proud of its graduates’ success who either start their own labels such as Bless, house of the very island’s, Petar Petrov, Sagan Vienna (formerly Bradaric Ohmae), Ute Ploier or Wendy Jim, or obtain top-level positions in the international fashion industry or with renowned fashion companies such as Acne Studios, Balenciaga, Burberry, COMME des GARÇONS, JW Anderson, Junya Watanabe, Kenzo, Lanvin, Prada, Louis Vuitton or Vetements, to name only a few.

britta thie screening & gespräch

Wie wirken sich die Prozesse des Filterns, Selbst-Brandings und der Kommodifizierung des Selbst auf die künstlerische Produktion und deren öffentliche Wahrnehmung aus? Es ist inzwischen gängige Praxis, Narrative des Selbst auf Plattformen wie Instagram, SoundCloud und Facebook auszustellen.

Diese Medien bieten auch für die künstlerische Produktion eine Reichweite jenseits des Kunstkontexts, wobei Aspekte des Privaten und Professionellen oft unentwirrbar vermischt, somit auto-fiktional und auch vermarktbar werden.

Mit diesen Themen und Fragestellungen befassen sich die jüngsten Projekte der Künstlerin Britta Thie die in den Medien Expanded Cinema, Skulptur und Performance arbeitet.
Einem breiteren Publikum wurde sie durch ihre Webserie »Translantics« (2015) bekannt. In sechs Episoden beleuchtet die Serie am Beispiel von drei jungen Frauen eine Generation, die sich zwischen der analogen Vergangenheit und der Ästhetik der modernen Technologien hin und her bewegt.
In ihrer jüngsten Videoinstallation »Powerbanks« (2018) spielen Jugendliche vor der Kulisse einer Shoppingmall und innerhalb ihrer hermetischen Insta-Feeds.

Im Rahmen des Vortrages wird Britta Thie eine Auswahl ihrer Arbeiten präsentieren, darunter den 2017 entstandenen Film »System of a Doubt« sowie Ausschnitte aus »Powerbanks« vorstellen um danach mit den Zuschauenden ins Gespräch kommen.

Britta Thie wurde in Minden geboren und lebt in Berlin. Nach ihrem Studium der Bildenden Kunst verbreitete sie ihre videobasierten Arbeiten meist selbst über das Internet. Parallel arbeitete sie als Model und Schauspielerin. In den Jahren 2016 und 2017 war sie Stiftungs-Professorin für Zeitbasierte Medien und Performance an der Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach.

conny runner »hacks, neorealismus, subversion und post-situationismus«

Die neuen Technologien zum Informationsaustausch überschlagen sich in ihrer Entwicklung. Was heisst es, sie als Medien für subversive Aktionskunst zu nutzen? Und das in einer Zeit, in der wir uns weder darauf verlassen können, dass Informationen nicht nachbearbeitet wurden – noch als Individuen die Kapazitäten haben, die relevantesten Informationen zu filtern…

Conny Runner vom Peng Kollektiv arbeitet Aktionsformen aus, die diese Flut an Informationen aggregiert und vermischt. Die Betrachter*innen werden durch Irritation dazu aufgefordert, selber Position zu beziehen und die Codes und Kommunikationsformen herrschender Institutionen in Frage zu stellen.

Doch was sind ethische Fallstricke, in die man kommunikativ treten kann und wo hört die Kunst auf und beginnt die politische Mission? Runner macht einen Rundumschlag bisheriger Aktionen, geht auf das Critical Campaigning Manifest ein, welches als Orientierung für ethische Kampagnen dienen kann, und vertritt Thesen, welche Rollen und Strategien bei der Vermischung von Aktivismus, Aktionskunst und Journalismus sinnvoll sein könnten. Das Publikum wird gebeten Torten mitzubringen, falls neofaschistische Kräfte die Veranstaltung stören möchten.

workshop with gelitin

Every year, the Institute of Design organises an interdisciplinary workshop for a total of 18 participating students. This year´s three-day workshop will be held by austrian artist group Gelitin.

About the workshop
Under the title STRAFKOLONIE VOLLPENSION, the workshop participants search, find and filter online snippets, photos, videos, blogs, interviews and transform them into performances, photos, videos and drawings.

Starting from their own practical experience, the three artists Manuel Scheiwiller, Maria Metsalu and Florian Reither create atmospheres and situations – a big bang – enabling the students to tackle grand performances and situations free from shyness and restraint. Anything of quality is possible and permissible.

Manuel Scheiwiller, Maria Metsalu and Florian Reither are members of the YOUNG BOY DANCING GROUP.

We can’t wait to see what happens!

About Gelitin
Gelitin formed in the mid-nineties in Vienna, Austria consisting of the four artists Ali Janka, Florian Reither, Tobias Urban, and Wolfgang Gantner. Characterized by disparate yet unifying backgrounds, the artists perform their practice on the fragile territory of humour, spontaneity, child-like naiveté, and blatant sexuality that has given rise to their over-the-top performances and visually enticing work. Anticipating Relational Aesthetics, Gelitin plays with audience participation and collaboration, as a central core of their oeuvre. Attitudes become form and viewers are invited to join in as participants, defying their routine behaviour while enjoying art from a new perspective.

Austrian Contribution, London Design Biennale 2018, Emotional States

For the London Design Biennale 2018 – taking place from 4 to 23 September at Somerset House – students from Design Investigations, a five year diploma program at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, led by Professor Anab Jain, present a speculative installation curated by Thomas Geisler.

The second London Design Biennale will see the presentations of more than thirty nations from six continents in Somerset House in London. The participating countries are focusing on key themes encapsulated in the motto ‘Emotional States’, the main challenges facing our society at present: sustainability, migration, environmental pollution, general availability of water and social equality.

In the Austrian contribution the students investigate the opportunities, as well as the tensions and unintended consequences of a complex and contradictory world. They create tools, tactics, strategies, stories, actions, instruments and systems that aspire to be pioneering, transformative and stimulating, but also inclusive and full of humility.

Transporting visitors to an Austria contending with the stark realities of climate change, they demonstrate how those who live in this world face down new challenges with tradition and technology, using craft and cunning to thrive in an altered landscape. Visitors will experience the emotional tensions of this altered Austria through first-hand experiments, legal hacks, protest rituals, performances and atmospheric soundscape.

The contribution is a cooperative venture between the Werkraum Bregenzerwald and the Vienna University of Applied Arts, commissioned by the Austrian Federal Chancellery / Section II – Art and Culture.

a_social media

The exhibition a_social media engages with obvious and hidden influences of social media on our society.

“How do we perceive ourselves as producers, viewers and recipients of messages?” “How do the concepts of identity and authenticity change in the virtual and infiltrate the real world?” “How do digital means alter our perception, selfperception and our behaviour?” These and further questions are triggered and negotiated by the works of artists and designers of the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the theoretical contributions by international experts in the field.

The entirety of the project is situated situated in the field of critical design. The contributing artists and designers deliver critical and speculative works to make the viewer questions unconscious personal assumptions and commonly accepted behavioural patterns.

martin pross grow up

Über eine völlig neue Agentur – mit völlig neuen Ideen.

Wenn ein Unternehmen und seine Produkte fortschrittlicher sind als die eigene Werbung, sollte man einfach mal alles anders machen. Genau das hat Mercedes-Benz getan. Das Ergebnis: eine völlig neue Agentur – mit völlig neuen Ideen.

Martin Pross berichtet über die Schaffung eines neuen Agentur-Konzeptes und die Entstehung einer Kampagne, die bisherige Konventionen erschüttert.

Martin Pross ist einer der internationalen Top-Werber und Partner der eigens für den Europa-Etat von Mercedes-Benz gegründeten Agentur antoni in Berlin. Pross studierte Kommunikationsdesign an der Hochschule der Bildenden Künste in Saarbrücken und begann seine Laufbahn 1994 bei der Agentur Maksimovic & Partners. 1996 wechselte er zu Scholz & Friends nach Berlin, wo er als Creative Director arbeitete und später zum Kreativ-Vorstand berufen wurde. 2014 machte er sich mit seiner eignen Agentur PROSS selbstständig. Seine Arbeiten, u.a. für das Land Baden-Württemberg, die F.A.Z. und Mercedes-Benz, gewannen beim allen internationalen und nationalen Wettbewerben die höchsten Auszeichnungen. Er war u.a. Jurymitglied, Jury-Vorsitzender und -Präsident zahlreicher Kreativwettbewerbe von ADC Deutschland bis zu den Cannes Lions Film. Pross ist seit 1998 Mitglied des Art Directors Club für Deutschland.

ästhetik der veränderung – 150 jahre universität für angewandte kunst wien

Die Geschichte der Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien ist ein Teil der Kunstgeschichte Österreichs.

Im Jahr 1867 wurde am k. k. Österreichischen Museum für Kunst und Industrie (dem heutigen MAK) die Kunstgewerbeschule eingerichtet, um das österreichische Kunsthandwerk international konkurrenzfähig zu machen. Sie ist die Vorgängerinstitution der heutigen Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien, die nunmehr ihr 150-Jahr-Jubiläum feiert.

Diese Zeitspanne ist Thema des ersten Teils der Jubiläumsausstellung im MAK (Untere Ausstellungshalle). Während kurze Texte Schlaglichter auf die wechselvolle Geschichte der Angewandten werfen, bieten rund 400 Exponate Zugang zu Entwicklungen, die von ihr ausgingen und -gehen. Die Präsentation zeigt Objekte der universitätseigenen Sammlung, ergänzt durch Werke aus dem MAK und vereinzelte Leihgaben sowie etliche Dokumente aus dem Unterricht. Tausende Biografien sind mittlerweile durch Ausbildung und Lehre mit der Angewandten verbunden: darunter „Stars“ aus der Kunst-, Design- und Architekturgeschichte sowie noch kaum bekannte Namen.

Für die Ausstellungsgestaltung haben BWM Architekten eine enzyklopädische Gliederung der Themenpunkte gewählt, die zu unerwarteten Gegenüberstellungen führt. Die Entwicklung der Unterrichtsfächer wird in einer großen Genealogie in der zentralen Ausstellungshalle dargestellt. Zudem vermitteln zahlreiche Abteilungen der Angewandten in aktuellen Videos Zugänge zur heutigen Ausbildung, stellen Projekte der Studierenden vor und geben Einblicke in das Leben an der Angewandten.

Der zweite Teil der Jubiläumsausstellung (obere MAK-Ausstellungshalle) skizziert Thesen für die Zukunft und plädiert für eine Neuorientierung von Bildung, Kunst und Gesellschaft. In drei Kapiteln – „Social Turn“, „Technological Turn“ und „Cultural Turn“ – werden Trends zu Themenkomplexen gebündelt und vorgestellt. Neben zeitgenössischen künstlerischen Positionen nimmt die Ausstellung aktuelle zukunftsweisende Forschung in den Fokus und mündet in einer virtuellen Installation, die Denkanstöße und Visionen für die Zukunft zeigt.

„Zukunft ist da, wo wir uns selbst darum bemühen“, so Kurator Peter Weibel. Diesem Gedanken folgend, schafft das Kuratorenteam mit seinem Beitrag zur „Ästhetik der Veränderung“ ein interaktives Ausstellungserlebnis. Virgil Widrich und Stefan Unger von checkpointmedia sowie Pia Scharler und Gerhard Jordan von getusedtoit verstärken diesen Anspruch mit einem eindrucksvollen Gestaltungskonzept: Sie dekonstruieren den Ausstellungsraum, um ihn durch ein Spiel aus Hell und Dunkel zu verwandeln und so gekonnt zu inszenieren. Im Fokus stehen nicht Abbruch und Zerfall, sondern Aufbruch und Umbruch. Der Spot wird auf das Neue gerichtet, alte Strukturen verschwimmen im Dunkeln. Raumelemente wie Säulen und Träger tauchen in veränderter Form wieder auf, um von den BesucherInnen erobert zu werden. In dieser Kombination aus Ruine und Zauberwald können die Suche und die Neudefinition der Zukunft beginnen.

KuratorInnen: Peter Weibel, Vorstand ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe, emer. o.

workshop with erik kessels

Every year, the Institute of Design organises an interdisciplinary workshop for a total of 18 participating students. This year´s three-day workshop »Fabulous Failures« will be held by Amsterdam-based artist, designer and curator Erik Kessels.

About the workshop
Nowadays most art, design and photography are portraying perfection. Contemporary popular culture is drowning under a tidal wave of superficiality and over-perfection. Posed, polished and controlled. As if it were a reflection of our endless search for clarity and calmness and an antidote for the chaos in our lives. Technology allows us to refine the desired illusion of perfection even more. Digital techniques have created an abundance of images. We shoot and shoot until we get it right. The imperfect pictures get deleted and the good ones get a filter or a touchup.

In our perfection-obsessed culture we shy away from errors and that is, in Erik Kessels opinion, a disaster. An overabundance of skills and technological crutches eliminate the possibility of beautiful mistakes, of stunning failures and any result other than exactly what the maker set out to achieve.

Failing is something artists and creatives should more and more take as a subject for their work.

This workshop stimulates students from different disciplines to fight perfection, embrace serendipity and search for fabulous failures. In a three-day workshop Kessels will search together with the students what to find in their own ‘back garden’ and how to use this in their own work. Subjects like questioning your own confidence and creating from a ‘wrong’ direction will pass in these days. Finally every student will create a work in these days starting from a failure. All these Fabulous Failures will be shared at the end of the workshop.

erik kessels talks about fabulous failures

The Institute of Design is very pleased to welcome Erik Kessels and invites to his lecture at the University of Applied Arts on October 25, 2017.

About the talk
We live in an age where most of our tools we use are close to perfection. Our computers, phones, applications and navigation systems make no mistakes. Perfection is not a really good starting point to create new ideas, so to sometimes deliberately go towards a mistake and from their find a new direction is actually something good. Society teaches us to avoid mistakes, but for creative people and innovators they are essential.

Erik Kessels will speak about his new book Failed It! How mistakes inspire him and how he makes works out of it.

tribute to paolo piva

In Gedenken an Paolo Piva, Professor der Abteilung Industrial Design 1 und langjährigen Leiter des Institut für Design, lädt die Angewandte im Rahmen der Vienna Design Week zu einem Roundtable-Gespräch mit Weggefährt_innen des Designers und Architekten.

Paolo Piva, exzellenter Designer und Architekt mit großer internationaler Reputation, leitete mehr als 25 Jahre die Klasse für Industrial Design an der Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien. In seiner unnachahmlichen Art hat er es verstanden, das kreative Potenzial seiner Studentinnen und Studenten zu erkennen, sie auf subtile Weise auf den Weg der eigenen Stärken zu leiten und ihnen dabei entgegen dem lauten und rasenden Zeitgeist auch Zeit zu geben, ihre persönliche künstlerische Identität zu suchen und zu finden. Zum Gedenken an Paolo Piva organisiert die Angewandte einen Round Table, bei dem sich Menschen aus unterschiedlichen Bereichen seines Schaffens – Kolleginnen, Absolventen und persönliche Freunde – an ihn als Professor, Designer und Architekt erinnern.

Gerald Bast, Rektor der Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien, im Gespräch mit:

Marcus Bruckmann, interimistischer Leiter der Abteilung Industrial Design 1, Angewandte
Marino Folin,  Architekt, ehem. Rektor der Universitá luav di Venezia

As every year the department of fashion design class at the University of Applied Arts Vienna will be holding the country’s most-esteemed fashion show. Under the direction of Hussein Chalayan graduates and students will be presenting their latest collections at an event that you are most cordially invited to attend.

Fashion design training with top professors

The Show Angewandte was initiated in order to enable students to present their creations within the context of a professional fashion show. The most promising talents of the Fashion Department at Angewandte – the only Austrian institution offering a university-level diploma in the field of fashion design – show their collections that have been created under the guidance of internationally renowned fashion designer and professor of the department, Hussein Chalayan. The Show Angewandte has become one of the biggest and most demanded fashion shows in the country. It is widely known nationally as well as internationally not only among fashion experts and has achieved excellent reputation over the years.

Since the early 1980s the chair of the fashion class has been filled by international fashion stars in high demand such as Karl Lagerfeld, Jil Sander, Vivienne Westwood, Helmut Lang, Raf Simons, Viktor & Rolf, Bernhard Willhelm or – like the present head of the class – Hussein Chalayan. Graduates of the fashion class have gone on to create their own labels such as Sagan Vienna, Bless, GON, Petar Petrov, Ute Ploier oder Wendy&Jim, have assumed top-level positions in the Austrian and international fashion sector or with renowned fashion companies such as Balenciaga, COMME des GARÇONS, J.W.

gastvortrag arne reimer »long play«

„Long Play“ ist ein einfühlsames Fotobuch über die Ära der Langspielplatte. In den letzten zehn Jahren hat der Fotograf Arne Reimer alte Schallplattenläden und ebenso Plattensammler in Europa und in den USA aufgesucht. Seine zeitgenössischen Portraits als auch seine Interieuraufnahmen widmen sich behutsam der Vergangenheit.

In seinem Vortrag stellt Reimer das Buch und das Projekt „long play“ vor und legt den Fokus auf das Thema Plattencover und Fotografie:

Im digitalen Zeitalter erleben wir seit einigen Jahren ein Revival des damals wichtigsten Leitmediums einer Musikkultur: der Schallplatte. Nach der Einführung der CD 1982 wurde der LP immer wieder ihr Ende vorausgesagt.

Fast 50 Jahre war die Schallplatte mit ihrer Hülle der Gegenstand, wo Fotografie, Typografie und Musik eine enge Verbindung eingehen. Eine ansprechende Hülle wurde genauso wichtig wie der Inhalt. Dabei entwickelten sich die 31,5 mal 31,5 Zentimeter zur experimentellen Spielfläche von Fotografen, Gestaltern und Künstlern.

Wer verbirgt sich hinter den bekannten Covern, die oft zu Objekten einer populären Kultur wurden? Wie wurde das Medium Fotografie gezielt eingesetzt?

new head of industrial design 2: anab jain

The Institute of Design is pleased to welcome Anab Jain as the new Head of Industrial Design 2.

Anab Jain is known as a designer, filmmaker, entrepreneur and provocateur. She wears many hats, and brings them all together at her award winning future-facing design and innovation company, Superflux where she hopes to realise the vision of the studio as a new kind of design practice, responsive to the challenges and opportunities of the twenty-first century. Based in London and India, Superflux is both a consultancy and a lab, operating in the realm of emerging technologies—everything from drones to the Internet of Things to innovative products and technology across many categories—for business, cultural, and social purposes.

Superflux’s work is currently focused around autonomous systems, civilian drones, the Internet of Things, and various other strands of civic innovation, strategy, futures and the general impact of new technologies. The company recently won the UK Government’s Internet of Things competition for their design of a compact air quality monitoring and GPS tracking sensor that can be easily fitted to child’s pushchair.

Educated in India, Vienna, and London, Anab Jain has an MA with distinction in Interaction Design from the Royal College of Art, London (2005). Since then, she has consulted on both strategic and speculative design and technology projects for clients such as Microsoft Research, Nokia, Design Council and NESTA. Her experience and knowledge of design, emerging markets, new technologies and innovation has led her to be invited as a speaker for conferences worldwide.

The recipient of the Award of Excellence ICSID, UNESCO Digital Arts Award, and Grand Prix Geneva Human Rights Festival, Jain has also presented her work at MoMA, NY, Apple Computers Inc, Mattel HQ, London Design Festival and British Council amongst others. Her work has been profiled in the WIRED UK, Guardian Business Supplement, Popular Science, Marie Claire and Blueprint among others.

»Our work at Superflux investigates the complexities of our rapidly changing technological landscapes, and the social, political, economic, and cultural implications of such changes. Building on our experience and interests, it is my hope that I can bring a mode of enquiry amongst students and nurture an open-ended, critical, politically, and socially relevant creative position. I hope that the course will equip them with the capacity to act and excel in our rapidly changing and increasingly complex world; whether they work as independent designers, within organisations or create entirely new modes of activity.

I am genuinely excited about the opportunity to share ideas and be inspired by an exceptionally talented group of students as well as a supportive team of tutors and administrators in this endeavour.«

lecture sergio mugnaini

 „Is your forward thinking backward?“

More than just ‘digital thinking’, nowadays it is necessary to have a ‘digital mindset’ to change the way an advertising agency works. Are you ready to discuss how creatives should embrace new ways of working?

Sergio is one of the most awarded and experienced digital creatives worldwide. He believes the creative process plunges into unprecedented crossing experiments with the problems of everyday life. And technology will be a perfect toy to transcode those problems in opportunities and solutions for clients.
Sergio has worked for Ogilvy, JWT, DM9DDB, AlmapBBDO, Goodby Silverstein & Partners, AKQA, Laducca and now he is an Executive Creative Director at DPZ&T, from Publicis Group. Sergio won Golden Awards for all relevant festivals like the Cannes Festivals, One Show, Art Directors Club NY, New York Festivals, Clio or D&AD. He has also participated on international interactive juries for shows such as Canneslions, One Show or D&AD.

In 2005 he was elected the creative of the year in MSN/MMonline, and the same year he led Almap BBDO to be elected the agency of the year. In 2007 and 2008 Almap BBDO was among the 10 most awarded agencies, and in 2009, the company was in the top 5 in the Gunn Report Interactive. In 2010, Sergio helped AlmapBBDO to achieve “Agency of the Year”, at Cannes Festival. Finally, in 2013, Loducca was elected top 5 Independent agency of the Year at Cannes Festival.

put on the velcro slippers. enter the shower.

Every year, the Institute of Design organises an interdisciplinary workshop for a total of 18 participating students. This year´s hands-on workshop »Put on the velcro slippers. Enter the shower« will be held by London-based artist Joseph Popper.

In this workshop the participants will imagine mundane moments in future situations. They will work at 1:1 scale to craft individual encounters in time, scenarios where ‘real life’ meets the sublime: where human (or non-human) needs and desires coincide with a place and activity.

Joseph Popper examines space travel and other human technological endeavours by imagining future narratives and simulating fictional experiences. His works depart from developments of the emerging present and seek to project toward things to come. His narratives often feature a lone character reaching beyond the limits of mundane reality.

Popper employs handcrafted imagery and built environments in his approach which expose the honesty and rigour of his process. Everyday objects, simple materials and found locations transform into props and stages for playful, critical fictions where the normal is made fantastic.

symposium: undesign

What does it mean when the outcome of a design process is the decision not
to produce an object? Is this a design decision? How can designers work
outside the narrow constraints of the profession and deal with real world
issues? Is design for behaviour change an appropriate tool and what are the
limitations of this approach? How might Śundesigną processes be used as a
medium through which to investigate a design issue?

This symposium explores new and emergent critical positions in design
through the concept of Śundesigną. Led by a panel of international designers
and design researchers, the symposium takes the concept of Śundesigningą to
mean reducing, simplifying, removing or eliminating design (and complexity).
Building on the tradition of critical design, it aims to uncover and examine
new functions for contemporary design.

Speakers: Marloes ten Bhömer, Jochen Eisenbrand, Francisco Laranjo, Ramia
Mazé, Sarah Owens, Catharine Rossi, Thomas Thwaites, Maiko Tsutsumi

The symposium is convened by Björn Franke for the Department of History and
Theory as part of the FWF Research Project “Émigré Design Networks and the
Founding of Social Design”
, led by Alison J. Clarke.

lia »what you move is what you get«

Austrian artist LIA is considered one of the pioneers of software and net art and has been producing works since 1995. Her practice spans across video, performance, software, installations, sculpture, projections and digital applications.

The artist’s primary working material is code, which consists of LIA translating a concept into a formal written structure that then can be used to create a “machine” that generates real-time multimedia outputs. Since her concept is fluid – opposed to the formality of the written code that requires engineered precision – the translation process between machine and artist can be viewed like a conversation. The process is repeated until LIA is satisfied with the machine’s interpretation; at which point the generative framework, in which the artwork can develop, is considered finished.

LIA’s works combine traditions of drawing and painting with the aesthetics of digital images and algorithms, characterised by a minimalist quality and by an affinity with conceptual art. She focuses on the translation of certain experienced principles into abstract forms, movements and colours in order to allow the viewer to explore the same on a subconscious level.

LIA lives and works in Vienna.

bookrelease – lost: the story of refugees

Nach viel Erlebtem, langen Nächten und weiten Reisen ist es nun soweit. Wir möchten Euch zur Buchvorstellung von Lost – the story of refugees einladen!

Derzeit sind ca. 60 Millionen Menschen weltweitauf der Flucht vor Krieg, politischer Verfolgung und Unterdrückung. In vielen Ländern, auch in Europa, stoßen sie auf Ablehnung oder Diskriminierung. Wir sind ein Kollektiv aus jungen Fotografen, Reportern und Grafikern die diese Menschen vor, nach und während der Flucht begleitet haben. Wir sehen es als selbstverständlich an, den Flüchtlingen ein Gesicht zu geben und ihren Geschichten eine Projektionsfläche zu bieten. Unsere Recherchen führten uns über die Länder des Balkans, vor die Tore von Ungarn und bis in Österreichs überfüllte Flüchtlingslager. Aus diesen Impressionen ist ein Buch entstanden.

Ein Buch, dass die Emotionen, Eindrücke und Lebensgeschichten der Flüchtlinge anders wiedergibt, als Massenmedien und Politik es tun. Wir geben ein Buch heraus, das man sich wie einen stummen Zuseher vorstellen kann. Ein Buch, dass Vergangenheit, Zukunft und Gegenwart in einem Porträt spiegelt.

musikalische lesung

Eine Träne. Ein Lächeln.
Meine Kindheit in Damaskus

Luna Al-Mousli liest aus ihrem Buch
in Begleitung des syrischen Musikers Salah Ammo

»Vierzehn Jahre meines Lebens verbrachte ich in einer der ältesten Städte der Welt – in Damaskus. Mit 44 Geschichten aus meiner Kindheit und Jugend gebe ich einen Einblick in das Leben dieser Stadt. Ich erinnere mich an Orte, die nicht mehr existieren, und an Menschen, die nicht mehr sind, wo sie einmal waren. Meine Familie ist über die Welt verstreut. Die aktuelle Lage in Syrien ist geprägt von Bürgerkrieg, Angst und Flüchtlingselend, es gibt so wenig Hoffnung, das Land je wieder aufbauen zu können. Inspiriert von Hakauwati, dem Erzähler, der das Leben mit seinen Geschichten verzaubert, verspürte ich den Drang, meinen Freunden in Europa Geschichten aus Damaskus zu erzählen. Sie sind zweisprachig: deutsch, da ich seit zehn Jahren in Wien lebe, und arabisch, da ich mein Buch mit meinen Verwandten in Damaskus teilen will.«

Wir freuen uns auf einen gemeinsamen, stimmungsvollen Abend und laden im Anschluß zu Gesprächen bei Tee und Keksen!

ant!foto

Institute workshop with BöhmKobayashi

Every year, the Institute of Design organises an interdisciplinary workshop for a total of 18 participating students. This year´s workshop focusses on photography and the ANT!FOTO Manifesto held by Katja Stuke and Oliver Sieber.

»Behind Böhm/Kobayashi lurk the duo Katja Stuke and Oliver Sieber, who together cover an extensive range of personas: photographers and artists, curators and exhibition organizers, designers and art book editors. Yet as they move through their photographic cosmos, it is not always so easy to determine where one identity ends and the other begins. Regardless, in their works and activities as artists and art facilitators they have long since become moderators of a very specific photographic culture.«

Designed in commission of …
Conversations of graphic design

What Stefan Sagmeister talks about in a Viennese coffee house, what Mangalica pigs have to do with good design, and everything that was better before, or at least, not as bad.

In ten interviews with clients, Carlos Toledo, Eva Dertschei, Tino Erben, Martha Stutteregger, Stefan Sagmeister and Anita Kern report on their personal experiences with commissions and clients, and provide insight into their individual work processes.

In the book “Designed in commission of … Conversations of graphic design” three generations of graphic designers, all of which studied at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, speak openly about their experiences. With additional text contributions by Erik Spiekermann, Erwin K. Bauer and Christian Reder.

Marc Damm is alumni of the department of Graphic Design at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, including a stay at the University of the Arts Berlin.
Already during his studies he worked as a designer in national and international design studios such as Kerndesign, Fuhrer Wien, Studio Dumbar Rotterdam, Bueronardin und BueroX Wien. In 2014 he set up his own studiospace in Vienna.
Member of the Typographic Society Austria and designaustria.

lucy mcrae

The Department of Industrial Design 2 and the Institute of Design present a lecture given by Lucy McRae who is a sci-fi artist, director and self proclaimed body architect probing the frontiers of the body, health and human adaptability.

Dousing technology in femininity she responds to complex future scenarios, inventing visually iconic experiences that connects science with imagination.

Lucy McRae is an artist who straddles the worlds of fashion, technology and the body. Trained as a classical ballerina and architect, her work – which is inherently fascinated with the human body – involves inventing and building structures on the skin that reshape the human silhouette. Her provocative and often grotesquely beautiful imagery suggests a new breed: a future human archetype existing in an alternate world. The media call her an inventor; friends call her a trailblazer. Either way, Lucy relies on instinct to evolve an extraordinary visual path that is powerful, primal and unique.
