Behind The Scenes Documentation
Deniz Soezen installed a street sign opposite the Mackey Apartments (Artist Residency), designating the zone as “Little Austria”.
The building was built by the Austrian architect R.M. Schindler, 1939. It was purchased by the Republic of Austria in 1995 and made available for the activities of the MAK Center, Los Angeles.
The work is a humorous reflection upon the “Austrian-ness” of the MAK Center, which calls itself “the California satellite of the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art in Vienna”
