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.)

With a unique artistic intervention Donald Judd managed to blend the different stylistic worlds of the Baroque, Rococo, Classicism and Minimalism. Taking on a central position here is the Porcelain Chamber from the Palais Dubsky in Brno, one of the first rooms ever designed in European porcelain.
The MAK Library and Works on Paper Collection is one of the largest and oldest museum libraries with a focus on applied art. Alongside classic library functions, the collection is also devoted to artistic aspects of the pictorial in all possible variants as well as to the initiation of a reappraisal of art production manifested in paper form.
