20 years of monochrom
austria's international art-theory-diy collective monochrom celebrates 20 years of existence in 2013. the group's approach -- political, philosophical, sociological, artistic, and economic -- is thoroughly transdisciplinary, and the energetic intensity of their output could only be achieved by a collective. monochrom's work has resulted in an extremely nuanced and complex oeuvre. the group took part in numerous exhibitions, has a long publishing history, and has created a considerable number of projects --theatre plays, computer games, net activities, panels, performances, film and music productions, as well as activist events. on this the dawning of monochrom's third decade, the musa honors the group's never-ending contribution to the international art, discourse, and diy scene with a retrospective. both the musa and monochrom consider openness and a social involvement to be of utmost importance. therefore the musa lets the art group take over the entire space, celebrating the group's experimental nature and non-predictability.
