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 notion of performativity shifts the focus to the activities of producing and making as well as to those actions, exchange processes, changes, and dynamics
that define actors and cultural events. What is in the center therefore is not so much objects, monuments or artworks considered
as representing a culture or a cultural self-image, but rather the dynamic processes of making and using them.
