The Orange Age – an exhibition on media design of the 70s reviews a dynamic and highly creative era of the 20th century by showcasing selected objects and exhibits. Audio and TV devices, communication devices and office machines show how close (a lot of things still look familiar) and at the same time far (the analogue mode has disappeared once and for all) this period that was significant for the development of media as well as deign appears. The 1970s are – as the persistent retro trend suggests – as popular as no other decade.

All objects come from the private archive of Heinz M Fischer, who is in possesion of one of the most comprehensive historical media collections in Austria.
