The works of the artists for this exhibition, chosen by the artist curator Pavel Zelechovsky in close cooperation with ten other participating artists from Munich, Germany, and Brisbane, Australia, indicate ' each in their own way affect a turnaround of meanings; whether turning within the individual object itself, as a seduction in its reception, as an invitation to contextual thinking and acting, or as a declaration for the impossibility of a shift in direction altogether.

Indeed, the calls for turnarounds (reversals) are already made with such abundance by religious, economic and political systems that only skepticism about announcing any reversal and about its very announcers provides any possibility of change. In this dialectic of stagnation and movement, conservation and change, the artists of this exhibition perform with their own positions and draw a line from the reflection of the artists themselves via media and social criticism all the way to a hidden iconoclasm ' a critique on the picture itself. On the last day of the exhibition, on 6 November 2011, starting at 6 p.m., a presentation of selected movies and videos from artists participating in the exhibition will be shown. The final schedule will be announced later.
