-> Stefan Sagmeister, The Happy Show: through 28 March 2016, MAK Austrian Museum for Applied Arts
"In a way that is virtually unparalleled by any other institution, the MAK stands for the fruitful combination of the past with the future, something which can be clearly sensed and experienced when visiting its extensive collection, large exhibition halls, themed special exhibitions and discourse-centered program of events. Bringing together applied arts, design, architecture, and contemporary art is one of the museum’s core competencies, in light of which it becomes apparent just what contribution the interplay of these areas is capable of making to overall cultural development."
