The powerful graphite and pastel drawings and woodcuts by the British artist Emma Stibbon (born in Münster in 1962) traverse inner-city topographies as well as topographies that are remote and largely untouched by human hands. In this Berlin cycle, the artist investigates the utopian dimension of Modernist avant-garde buildings and totalitarian architectural experiments in the German capital, a metropolis that is defined by its history like no other, by the discontinuity of becoming and falling away: Relics of constructions from the time of the German Emperor, the Weimar Republic, Nazism and the post-war period: the two divergent halves of the city blend into the functional market economy architecture of the contemporary capital. Through these works, Stibbon portrays this urban space as a reflection of the past and a place where the future can be projected.
