The new is probably the most powerful and natural fact which influences us since we are borne. It is such an undefined and incredible word we use so often for „simple facts in our daily life but we are not aware of its power and the power of use. We need this word to explain a progress. It seems like the result of a magic trick. The new is so strong that it automatically takes away the light from the already known. Everything has its opposite and the new has the old; booth can only exist together, responsible for the process in the evolution. My essay examines the problematic around the new in a philosophical and critical way. It contains a large research about our relationship to the new and how it can appear in life. With Boris Groys article “on the new” I bring a problem between museum and art. Peter Dittmars article “the fascination of the new” shows also my point of view within art. “art shouldn´t be just beautiful, it should be creative, innovative and contemporary. Transformation “when the old passes to the new” shows the difference between 2 standing points of the new “the new as repetition in form of a copy” and “the new between the living and the dead” – a repetition in form of a mirror picture which is not just a repetition or copy, it is a another view of the new”. This difference is playing an important role in my practical work. My research is based on facts which appear in books and articles I collected around the contemporary art world. These facts will be put in contrast to each other, so it can automatically flow in a bride discussion which will be the most interesting and main part of my essay „the new“. My intention from the beginning to the final conclusion of this essay is clearly not to define „the new“ in any sense, it is more about an investigation of arguments which will help me to find theories about „the new“ in my practical work. Michel Foucaults questions about an author in the interpretation of the new structure my essay and will also be described in pictures which open a completely new dimension for the essay.What is the new?Do we have proofs of its authenticity and originality?What are the modes of the existence?From where does it come from, how is it distributed, from which controlled?
