|The presentation includes the 10-year period since the founding of the project space MAG3 (2006); its thematic reference, we pursued
since the beginning of existence of MAG3, can be described as follows:
Only in art has the gentrified society tolerated the reaisation of its own ideals and has taken them seriously as a general demand. What is regarded as an utopia, fantasy, upheaval in reality is allowed there. The affirmative culture has shown forgotten truths in art, which are crowed over in daily life by the justice of reality. The medium of beauty detoxifies the truth and departs it from the present. What happens in art does not entail any commitment. Unless such a beautiful world is not entirely represented as a phenomenon of the past, it is deprived of its topicality precisely because of the magic of beauty. Human beings could partake in happiness in the medium of beauty, but beauty was only accepted with a clear conscience in the ideal of art, since it comprises a dangerous power, which can endanger the given form of existence. The immediate sensuality of beauty immediately refers to sensual bliss. The decisive character of beauty is to arouse lust; lust is not only an implication of beauty but constitutes its essential character. (H.M.)
Among the 23 positions are media-, sound- and language based works, installations and film projects, as well as works of fine art.
Furthermore, a video film of Fritz FRO will be presented wherein all exhibitions, installations, performances and projects that have been shown in the project room MAG3; the movie has a duration of about seven minutes.
