Anselm Franke: Frontiers and Media

Admission: Day ticket 10€/7€ (incl. entry to the exhibitions and guided tour)

In this talk, Anselm Franke looks at the phenomena of the frontier – the often violent border zones where meaning, identity, and ownership are contested. Looking at a number of artworks that confront histories of colonial violence and state terrorism, the frontier is read as a zone of unruly mediations, whose inner workings and liminal states are directly reflected in aesthetics. Through works exhibited in the exhibition 2 or 3 Tigers, among others, a close connection is thus suggested between the history of imperial and national frontiers, media technologies, and their modes of representation.
