Statement by Rainer Fuchs

Since its foundation, museum in progress has not only revolutionized the Austrian art scene and placed it in an international context, but has also questioned the art world’s self-satisfied complacency. It has shown that a museum does not require a more or less appropriate architectural setting, that the public sphere can also be a non-physical, social and media space, and that art and its perception are not immutable concepts. This is a particularly important lesson today, as many museums go into reverse.
