>EU DE TOILETTE - Invest In Your Nose
Art and Money will be the central theme of this
year's MAK Day on 26 October and the various events and
activities scheduled for the national holiday on which
admission to the MAK is free.
Parked in front of the main entrance to the MAK for one
day, the money-tanker EU de Toilette of the group
Sabotage Communications will be pumping perfume with an
Austrian shilling scent directly into the columned
central hall of the MAK via a hose line. The perfume
will bubble from a fountain where visitors may fill
their personal small bottles with EU de Toilette and
take it with them as a lucky charm.
The highlight of the event will be the presentation of
a 10 Euro bill with an Austrian shilling scent in view
of the approaching introduction of the Euro - the name
of the bill: EU de Toilette Invest In Your Nose.
Together with artists Robert Jelinek and Erich
Poettschacher, the MAK will issue the edition EU de
Toilette Invest In Your Nose; the edition is limited
to 500 numbered copies, each of which perfumed with
Austrian shilling scent and vacuum-packed. Visitors may
order this exclusive edition on MAK Day, choosing the
number they like, and buy it as from 2 January 2002 in
the MAK Design Shop.
