C-ARTIKEL The ABC-Analysis is an economic procedure. Goods and products are categorized - for example - in A-, B-, and C-Items. C-Items are objects causing high costs, without generating sufficient profit for businesses. We draw a line from economy to arts and ask: What is fine art? Inside an abandoned flower-pavilion we show an exhibition within a generous architecture. To be visited at any time. Keep distance, please. C-Items The dispute between a good and evil piece of art turns emotional. The origin of our fairytale is the ABC-Analysis or the 80/20-Rule, the Pareto-Principle. Original pieces of arts are our protagonists – displayed in a large vitreous box, that once was a florist’s shop. May the drama take its turns. Please contain yourselves. Reading: Evil piece of art: “Items – Inventory. Resources – Costs. Costs – Benefits. Separate significant from insignificant. Focus on streamlining. Avoid uneconomic efforts. Reduce storage costs! -pause for own thoughts- Result orientation -> current actuals: High processing costs without margin = unprofitable.” Good piece of art: “How far do we go?” E.p.o.A.: “Increase profits + not loosing the workflow + maintain efficiency + continuous optimization!” Choir chants: l’art pour l’art ! G.p.o.A.: « I can think of only one consequence. We stand tall. Art will triumph! The Show is in an empty Flower Pavillon. Soon this building from the 60s will be demolished. This window exhibition could be visited at day and night time.
