FUTURE FACTORY: Rethinking Urban Production

Future Factory © buero bauer

A project of the Vienna Business Agency in collaboration with the MAK and in cooperation with the Ottakringer Brewery

29.5. – 6.10.2019 at the MAK Gallery
11.9. – 5.10.2019 at the Gallery Die Schöne

Using the Ottakring site as an example, five creative teams will expose the untapped potential of production in the city. Using experimental prototypes, they explore show production and the circular economy for food, produce urban fashion, optimize urban planning in bionic settings, and make use of vacant spaces as virtual escape rooms in a playfully educational way. Starting from 29 May the teaser exhibition in the MAK GALLERY will give initial insight into the projects which will be shown in the Ottakringer Brewery from 11 September – 5 October 2019. Accompanying tours to Viennese locations of urban production, workshops, and talks invite discussion.

Curator: Erwin K. Bauer
