"The border line is the truly propitious place for acquiring knowledge." (Paul Tillich)
The borderlines that shape our everyday lives play a central role in the work of the internationally acclaimed sound and media artist Georg Klein. In his installations and interventions in the public space, he challenges his audience’s preconceived patterns of perception, employing border-crossing audiovisual constellations as well as political fakes, leading the observer onto shaky ground and forced to question identities – often in a highly provocative manner.
Yet, instead of merely overcoming borders, Klein is concerned with investigating borders and walking along the fine borderline between art and reality as well as the boundaries between various artistic genres. This thematically arranged catalogue brings together for the first time the artist’s works, many of which are temporary in nature, and provides a detailed discussion of this body of work within an art theoretical framework.
