The exhibition ‘Totem and Taboo’, which is currently taking place in Vienna in freiraum quartier21 of the INTERNATIONAL MuseumsQuartier Wien, examines the relationship between art and design.

It features works by contemporary artists and designers who work at the frontiers and crossovers of their respective disciplines. Treating art as a relative of design, the exhibition focuses on one-off pieces and limited edition items, which, just like artworks, are produced for exhibition purposes and sold within gallery spaces.
