MAK – Museum of Applied Arts
The Vienna Biennale for Change 2021 exhibition at the MAK – Museum of Applied Arts recognizes and examines CLIMATE CARE as a key concept and vision for a world that humans share in a just and sustainable way with other species and future generations. It demonstrates through a wide range of art, design, and architecture projects how artists and creative minds can play a central role in shaping an ecologically and socially sustainable Climate Modernity.

MAK Project Contributions
100 Ideas for Vienna
Chair of Architecture & Urban Design, Prof. Hubert Klumpner, ETH Zurich
What contribution can architecture and urban design make to the climate debate towards the social and ecological transformation of Vienna? Can we co-design spaces that address topics of justice, migration, inclusion, housing, security, mobility, production, work, and the environment? Whilst Vienna ranks first in a global quality-of-life survey, there is also a sense of unease; so not acting on bigger questions is not an option. Nurturing, Dwelling, Moving, and Generating are our thematic drivers, opening up a broader discussion with international participation in Vienna. The Fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989 triggered a process of transformative change in the city. Part of it was the first version of 100 Ideas for Vienna from 1992. Similar projects have since been developed over the years in Caracas, Detroit, Johannesburg, Athens, and Zurich. Today almost 30 years after the first Vienna project, it is about reimagining Vienna with prototypical projects in the context of CLIMATE CARE.
Studio Mobile / Think Tank Station
Hubert Klumpner, Michael Walczak
2021, the studio mobil / think tank station is back and invites from May to October to a journey imagining a visionary city outdoor-laboratory, engaging ideas around the future of food. By touring the city, taking the streets, performing five sessions with more than 20 partners the studio mobil / think tank station acts as a nomadic outdoor agora. As an alternative form of urban practice the think tank station welcomes people to participate by (re)activating, collecting, and sharing knowledge about food. Presenting workshops, debates, and lectures around alternative food and food spaces as the emerging theme that concerns all of us.
Based on the idea of a gasoline station for the post-fossil age – perhaps one of the most iconic 20th-century purpose-built infrastructures—studio mobil / think tank station provides 24/7 services and infrastructure, including shelter, light, a library, performances, informal encounters, market, and a continuous supply of food for thought, but without gasoline—in short, a large-scale mobile sculpture anchored in public space.
