Initiated by the MAK ART SOCIETY (MARS), thirteen artists of our time interpreted the water tumbler of the Drinking Set No. 248 by Adolf Loos.
The MARS Glas Edition shows variations of approaching the masterpiece. Oscillating between veneration and experiment, it is the view through the artists’ eyes that forms the common theme. More or less radically, it transforms he iconic piece into a contemporary statement. Each glass speaks for itself. Nevertheless, the synopsis is more than the sum of its parts, just like an art collection en miniature. Artists: Gunter Damisch, Gregor Eichinger, Franz Graf, Jenny Holzer, Brigitte Kowanz, Helmut Lang, Peter Noever, Arnulf Rainer, Georg Salner, Markus Schinwald, Eva Schlegel, Manfred Wakolbinger, Heimo Zobernig
