29 May – 6 October 2019
The Museum für Angewandte Kunst in Vienna and the Austrian Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism have jointly developed an exhibition project in line with the Austrian climate and energy strategy #mission2030 and the Vienna-based Institute of Design Research’s guide entitled “Quality Standards for Circular Design” that reacts to global climate change with speculative design projects.
“Climate Change! From mass consumption to a sustainable quality society” showcases five projects by the Viennese design studio EOOS and other speculative design projects, which are designed to encourage active participation in shaping a sustainable lifestyle and aim at the development of a participatory society.
SOV - Social Vehicle is a compact, solar-powered electric light vehicle developed within an open development process; the refrigerator Greenfreeze 2 is made up of modular elements made of wood and sheep’s wool; the Citizen Socket serves as a temporary electric filling station in public spaces; the Lunar Lander can convert human urine into electricity; the Küchenkuh (kitchen cow) turns food waste into biogas as a source of energy.
The projects are to demonstrate new working methods and potentials of Design in the future.
Standard admission price is twelve euros, with a discounted rate of ten euros and free admission for children and young people up to 19 years of age.
