What is happiness, who can find it, and what can we do for our personal luck? New York-based graphic designer and typographer Stefan Sagmeister has intensively investigated these big questions.

“The Happy Show” presents the results of his personal research into happiness. Highly emotional information graphics, video documents of his individual experiments, or installations that visitors can participate in: the Austrian designer’s sensual image worlds encourage the public to increase their own feeling of happiness.

With handwritten comments left on the walls and floors, Stefan Sagmeister at the same time displays humor and a subtle distance to the theme. The show transgresses the boundaries between science, design, and everyday culture, stretching across the museum spaces into the Toni-Areal.
