 **Making the visible invisible:​** Some years ago the sudden desire to become invisible and to disappear emerged within a permanent proclamation of „making something visible“ (that has been practised at all fronts, also in the cultural context). Yet to keep a considerable part of one´s things beneath the surface in an increasingly rationalised and illuminated world probably is a necessity for survival, and for not to descend and go under as a whole. Particularly within a trend towards a total computation of the world, towards visibility and total transparency,​ towards surveillance or at least social control and the loss of intimcy there is probably a point in making the visible invisible again. To keep it below, hidden, not rationalising what is hidden, not quantifying it and not banalising it. With nine tenths beneath the surface: I want to be an iceberg – in the polar region. An iceberg describes the distance to the world and literally means having the essential beneath the surface. When the possibility for distance and the essential beneath the surface goes away, everything dies from bottom to top. **Making the visible invisible:​** Some years ago the sudden desire to become invisible and to disappear emerged within a permanent proclamation of „making something visible“ (that has been practised at all fronts, also in the cultural context).

 **Quasikunst at STWST48x3 MIND LESS hence means** a reality that is already there, it refers to life and negative entropy in the sense of enhancement of complexity and contradiction which has to be mastered; it means Cold Land, Robots and Block of Ice – as contexts that are still surreal; and it means mindless times, that taste like future even before future has begun: It is about new entitities, it is about everything. The above mentioned main contradiction – abolishment of man vs highly charged promise of personal experience for those humans – are extended into the question: Is the elimination of man the elimination of death? At some point it becomes personal for every one of us.  **Quasikunst at STWST48x3 MIND LESS hence means** a reality that is already there, it refers to life and negative entropy in the sense of enhancement of complexity and contradiction which has to be mastered; it means Cold Land, Robots and Block of Ice – as contexts that are still surreal; and it means mindless times, that taste like future even before future has begun: It is about new entitities, it is about everything.
