With the exhibition "Fractional Systems" the new building of the Mackey Garages was opened.
With a radical sound-performance of Sara Glaxia the MAK Center opened the exhibition Fractional Systems curated
by Peter Noever. More than 300 guests attended the opening to see the site-responsive works especially created for the occasion
by Franz Graf, Raymond Pettibon, Elke Krystufek, Hernán Diáz Alonso/Xefirotarch, and the next ENTERprise architects. A film program accompanies the interventions at the garages, curated by artists John Baldessari, Heinrich Dunst and Peter Kogler that refer to the new room at the Garage Top (video works by Judy Fiskin, Kurt Kren , Claudia Kugler, Sonia Leimer, Tina Schulz and Nadim Vardag.)

The Works on Paper Room is devoted exclusively to graphic art. This space features a multifunctional system of tracks holding
mobile frames that can be converted to display cases as needed. Thematically, the material presented here encompasses commercial
graphic art in the broadest sense. The diversity of the exhibition programming, which covers a range of topics including posters,
hand drawings, Japanese woodcuts, individual artists stances, artists books and architectural projects, testifies
to the underlying collections multilayered character.
