Discipline: Communication

Art today forms an auto-referential system where many works relate to other works. Thus, a network evolves that is comprehensible and readable to insiders only.
In as much as a museum can be called a site where artworks are collected, the eBay network, which sees itself as an online marketplace, must be called a site where objects gather that have only but one thing in common: They desire to be bought.
On the premises of the Museum for Modern Art Frankfurt (MMK) those two networks entangle and are – room by room – combined in new fields of meaning.
