Based on the art of the Biedermeier period, which is defined by the abstraction of forms, ornament and colour, Clegg & Guttmann interpret the ensemble of the MAK Branch Geymüllerschlössel as the backdrop for trenchant and staged tableaux – expressly lit and set to music as well as the spoken word – of furniture, objects, instruments and materials from the age of Biedermeier.

Published for the exhibition of the same title (25.9.–4.12.2016) at the MAK Branch Geymüllerschlössel, Vienna

Edited by Christoph Thun-Hohenstein and Bärbel Vischer. An assortment of selected interviews with experts&mdashsuch as the art historians Christian Witt-Dörring and Markus Neuwirth, the artist Christian Mayer, as well as the MAK Curators Rainald Franz, Sebastian Hackenschmidt, Barbara Karl, and Elisabeth Schmuttermeier&mdashprovides an explanation of the cultural codes of Biedermeier applied art, interiors, and architecture.
