At the latest when the spectator of Greg Haberny’s space-filling solo-show “End Of The Road” puts on the obligatory shoe covers, he realizes that he moved into a different sphere. Into a scenario, which is apocalypse and promise at the same time. Into an artist’s fantasy, which is the end and the beginning of a long journey and thereby deeply rooted in the self-conception of modernism; being radical and integrative at once. In one of his interviews with Calvin Tomkins, Marcel Duchamp put it in a nutshell when speaking of what modern art truly does. Namely to include the spectator, even more to acknowledge him as the one who is responsible that art becomes art through experiencing and discussing:

“The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act.” GH
