260410: WAGNER:WERK Museum Postsparkasse der BAWAG P.S.K. Feminine Fifties – The Wirtschaftswunder Women

WAGNER:WERK Museum Postsparkasse der BAWAG P.S.K. Feminine Fifties – The Wirtschaftswunder Women 13.04.10 – 22.05.10 Teenager on the shelf Teenagers as ceramic figures - sitting on scooters, or wearing perky scarves, drainpipes, duffle coats, and other absolutely essential 1950-accessories; or, as an alternative, ceramic figures of Javanese women or women belonging to other ethnic groups. On the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the Viennese ceramics manufacturer Keramos, the WAGNER:WERK Museum Postsparkasse takes a closer look at women and everyday life of the 1950’s. In those days, the ideal woman was seen as a fashionably dressed house- and family manager, happily swaying a cooking spoon in her pastel-coloured kitchen, and, thanks to modern household appliances, able to spend the evening reading a book in a cocktail-chair. The coffee sets, vases, wall masks, and bric-a-brac manufactured by Keramos are the prototypical accessories of the 50’s. The renowned Wiener Werkstätte influenced many of the designers working for Keramos, and, formally, the designs were on the same level as those by Bimini, Hagenauer and Goldscheider - but at some point drifted beyond the nebulous border of Kitsch. All of this only has a peripheral effect on the predominantly architecture- and design oriented exhibition. But the Keramos figures offer a great opportunity to illustrate the image of everyday life during the 1950’s in an ambitious and entertaining way.
