Am 20. September 2002 wurde die Installation SPLITTERWERK meets Gustav Klimt nach einem Beschluss des Vorstandes der Wiener Secession 44 Tage vor Ausstellungsschluss demontiert. Die Demontage erfolgte gegen den Willen der Verfasser und der Kuratorinnen der Ausstellung "Trespassing, Konturen räumlichen Handelns." DAS IST ZENSUR!
Außerdem entspricht diese Vorgehensweise einer groben Verletzung des secessionistischen Leitsatzes: DER ZEIT IHRE KUNST. DER KUNST IHRE FREIHEIT. Wir fordern den sofortigen Rücktritt des Präsidenten und des gesamten Vorstandes der Secession und die Wiedererrichtung der Installation.

On the 20th of September 2002, the installation SPLITTERWERK meets Gustav Klimt was removed by decision of the board of the Vienna Secession 44 days before the conclusion of the exhibition. The removal was carried out against the will of the authors and the curators of the exhibition "Trespassing, Shaping Spatial Practices." THIS IS CENSORSHIP!
Moreover, this procedure amounts to a blatant violation of the Secession's guiding principle: TO THE AGE ITS ART. TO ART ITS FREEDOM. We demand the immediate resignation of the president and the entire board of directors of the Secession and the reestablishment of the installation.
