THESAURÓS Artists

In ancient Greece, the thesaurós (treasury) was a place in the temple where votives and offerings for the gods were collected. Since modern times, large dictionaries and encyclopedias have been named accordingly. Knowledge and vocabulary are to be preserved here; words such as treasure also stem from this place. The thesaurós, as a repository for the sacred and that worth preserving at the beginning of the European cultural tradition is, for Bublitz, a symbol and figure for a new handling of and access to art and culture in the 21st century.

Thanks to the constantly effective miracle assumed by myth, the waking day of a people who are stimulated by myth, as the ancient Greeks were, does indeed resemble dream more than it does the day of a thinker whose mind has been sobered by science. If, one day, any tree may speak as a nymph, or if a god can carry off virgins in the guise of a bull, if the goddess Athene herself is suddenly seen riding on a beautiful chariot in the company of Pisistratus through the market-places of Athens - and that was what the honest Athenian believed - then anything is possible at any time....."
