keine_verlaengerung_fuer_makdirektor_peter_noever20101112133613.jpg1.  Peter Noever, the ex-managing director of the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts and Contemporary Art (MAK) in Vienna, is in big trouble for mismanaging the museum's budget. Among other things, he took 79 vacation days a year, spent over $100,000 annually on his travel expenses, billed the museum for 58 bottles of alcohol at an event for eight people, and had 10 birthday parties for his mother on the museum's tab. Woah. [via Artforum]
