MAGIC TREE (WUNDERBÄUMCHEN)


This wall-piece was part of a series of contemporary interventions in an art historic exhibition about the mythical founder of Austria. History is distinguished by the fact that it is no longer something present but has become something "absent", as the French historian Michel de Certeau once put it. Initially, with the title "magic tree" itself, a current reference to the present is created: it refers to the small scented trees for vehicles, which are mass-produced to improve the air and can thus be seen as a synonym for ideology in historiography.
