As part of the exhibition “50”, 49 housing estates in Prague were symbolically transferred to the center of Prague in a white box at the Austrian Cultural Forum. This box represented the 50th housing estate and acted as a “laboratory” in which a process of disintegration was shown. In this lab slab were hanging 49 infusion containers, filled with 49 different colors mixed with citric acid. This liquid was dripping permanently on 49 concrete limestones. During the exhibition-period of 50 days one could pursue the gradual change of the 49 blocks and their gradual decomposition.This revolution of decomposition and the collapse of the rigidity with established norms should demonstrate the formal, philosophical – cultural and societal transition (threshold condition) of old-established forms into new, yet not definable temporary “final stages”.
