Contemporary Female Artists from the Arabian Mediterranean Region
27.04.2013 – 08.09.2013
Over the course of the »Arab Spring« the region to the south of the Mediterranean is undergoing a state of transformation, the events of which are followed in Europe with great interest, but also with hope and skepticism. With respect to content, the focus of the exhibition »Cross-border« is on artist’s critical investigation of various thematic aspects of the concept of borders, the attitudes and approaches to borders and strategies of overcoming them. Questions emerge within the context of the exhibition, which adopt a clear position to this issue and elaborate a range of solutions, which treat regionally specific, political or cultural aspects.

The eighteen artists whose works are represented in the exhibition are globally networked. Several of them have spent many years abroad, a number of them currently in foreign countries or else commute between different countries. The exhibition offers a differentiated perspective on the region through the works of the artists, which invite viewers to reevaluate biased perspectives and misinterpretations.
