Etant donnés! – Given! ... Art as assertion of an action that takes or produces a part of the world until it – without any reason – is totally withdrawn from the empirical measure of all things.

This assertion enters the system of the artworld as it is found and organised. On its portals this propositions are laid down like solid rock for its further conversational handling.

The produced propositions intend to be directions for orientation within the prospect of ideas which are assembled on this website. They do not hope to force anyone into understanding, yet they are intended to be – in the words of Wittgenstein – »the explanation that gets accepted«.

Given ... as axiom that artistic practice has and needs neither a reasonable foundation nor an unreasonable.


Art is not what one sees -

Art is the gap.

Marcel Duchamp
