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.)

Visitors can realise just how diverse the Metal Collection is by viewing the presentation of the objects in the Study Collection Metal, which is arranged according to types. Candleholders, beakers, pots and jugs, bowls and dishes illustrate their stages of stylistic and functional development. Moreover, since 1993 the great variety of the metal collection has been presented in the form of alternating, temporary exhibitions, which also frequently include contemporary jewellery design.
