Soft Schindler: Softness as Resistance at the MAK Center

Soft Schindler: Softness as Resistance at the MAK Center

08:50

Curated by Mimi Zeiger, Soft Schindler brings together contemporary artists and architects to explore questions of softness within the narrative of Pauline Schindler’s history at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House.

Soft Schindler participants, through their respective practices and presented works, show the incompleteness of binary ideas in architecture, sculpture, and design— femininity vs. masculinity, inside vs. outside, heavy vs. light, rational vs. emotional—framing such notions outmoded. Each of these practitioners makes non-conforming aesthetics and ideologies manifest in space.
