“Schnittlinien/ Cutting Lines” presents a cross section through several bodies of work that I produced during my fellowship at the German Academy Villa Massimo in Rome in 2015. These works are connected along thematic lines and attempt to reveal and investigate ‘cutting lines’ in various ways: cutting lines, at which historic world views and cultural concepts intersect and along which the present can be seen to unfold; cutting lines, upon which cultural, social and religious categories are constructed; and cutting lines, which establish spatial divisions as violent borderlines.
