Öffnungszeiten/Opening hours VIENNA ART WEEK:

Sa/So 14.00 bis 18.00 (2pm-6pm)

„The history of art is the conflict of all the optical experiences, of invented spaces and figurations and it is not a question of reproducing, but rather of creating , and for this reason we consider the history of art to be a conflict of different imagined spaces“ It is a question not of the reproduction of reality , but rather producing a continual interference with reality. Hallucination becomes the immanant practice of utopia rather than the ideological repitition of ready-made thought. Hallucination as permanent enlightenment, perception on the brink, on the verge between what was and what is to come.°

(°David Quigley from the book Carl Einstein : A Defense Of The Real )
