sinopsis

With Josef Frank (1885–1967), the catalogue for the exhibition in the MAK, Vienna,
focuses on one of the most important Austrian architects of the 20th century. In addition
to his groundbreaking architectural oeuvre, the discussion considers Frank as an
extremely productive designer who, although sceptical and a prominent cultural critic,
must be thanked for his many important stimuli to international design that are still
valid today. As an architect and designer who is still "contemporary" to this day, Frank
was known for his pragmatic design approach, and pleaded for "normal" – but not at all
normative – architecture and design. For Frank, the qualities of social experience were
more important than formal aspects; his interiors and utilitarian articles were primarily
intended to serve the comfort of the user. Josef Frank’s ideas of an uncontrived and
unpretentious utilitarian expedience, which was focused on an independent, free,
enlightened housing and living culture beyond all stylistic dogmas and fashionable
conventions, is more topical today than ever.
Grand exhibition at the MAK (Museum of Applied Arts), Vienna, from 16.12.2015
