Peter Rauch
A documentary exhibition

Aksioma | Project Space
Komenskega 18, Ljubljana

19 December 2012 - 4 January 2013

Exhibition opening: WED 19 December 2012 at 8 pm

The task of Community is to meet. Meetings, of course, leave traces and some people find these traces disturbing, so they erase them. Every erasure leaves traces and most traces lead to Aksioma Project Space; in spite of (and in the face of) all erasers, Community here establishes its Premises. The purpose of Premises is a public continuation of meetings, transparency of the simulacrum, which grounds the common of Community; this time around, the erasers and everyone looking forward to a cup of coffee are invited and welcome. Traces will be exhibited together with the opening of Premises. The traces of erasure remain within the domain of Community and may be used on another occasion.

You are invited to attend the opening, the meeting or to join Community on 19 December 2012 at Aksioma Project Space (until 4 January 2013).
