“Meta-art transcends the known arts – that’s why it is called Meta-art – entirely, despite the fact that it uses the same humble means. 

In essence there is only one pendant for this phenomenon: baron Munchausen, dragging himself from the swamp by his own hair.

But this baron is a reassuring fantasy figure, while Meta-art represents a disturbing reality.

Disturbing, because there is no other artistic expression that distracts itself in such a way from our grip like Meta-art.

But the most disturbing: that Meta-art only because of this (indeed) expresses more about our essence than in any other creative expression can be expressed about this essence.

With which Meta-art at last represents something that still really gnaws at the basic certainties of our art experiences.

A hungry wolf dressed in a woolly sheep’s skin.

Damn, modernism was still to be finished.

And modernism is finished. In a grand style.”
