Since 2005 BIG ART has been developing permanent and temporary art projects in, around, and on selected buildings of the Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft. As Austria’s largest owner of real estate, the BIG corporation has set itself the task of enabling architecture, art, and users to enter into a dialogue.
In the 20th century, the autonomy and synthesis of art and architecture were demanded under converse auspices (Adolf Loos, Bauhaus). Today, these aspirations stand to a certain extent side by side and are perceived by BIG ART as concurrent phenomena in public spaces.
The exhibition in the MAK FORUM presents an overview of BIG’s art and construction projects as well as the film BIG ART – 10 Jahre Kunst und Bau [BIG ART: 10 Years of Art and Construction].
The show will be accompanied by talks and a panel discussion with international experts on Wednesday, 16 September, 6:30 p.m. in the MAK Lecture Hall (Entrance: Weiskirchnerstraße 3).
