On the occasion of "Project(OR) Art Fair - platform for contemporary art spaces" < rotor > shows a selection of artists from the Graz scene which is titled "Prophets and Smugglers". It features artists who work with different media ranging from graphics and comics to staged photography and objects. All contributions deal with breaks in reality and the creation of new realities. Reality is seen as a kind of raw material which has to be transformed into a different – if not to say higher – state with the means of art. The foreseeing of a new reality can be understood as an act of prophecy but, to tell the truth, it is often a process of smuggling topics and ideas from one context into another.
