Statement by Stella Rollig

With its foundation, museum in progress became a pioneer in the context-specific art of the 1990s. It fostered an awareness of social, economic and cultural connections, smartness, flexibility, powers of persuasion – with a feeling for the way art can take up and subvert the codes of our visual culture and for the artists who best fitted in with this approach. It reached out and offered a platform for them, with surprising, clever and always breathtakingly beautiful results.
