At a time when blank spots have by and large disappeared from maps, “wilderness” has returned in art. The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt has dedicated an extensive theme-based exhibition to this recurring fascination.



The view through the keyhole. Living in the Ruhr region, as seen through art
Living in the Ruhr region – many people have a pre-conceived idea of what that means, imagining housing estates for workers and Gelsenkirchen Baroque. This exhibition and publication illustrate how diverse artists examine the phenomenon of “living”, in both serious and entertaining ways. Looking through the keyhole is discussed in a range of categories, like the historical living situation, photography, painting, new media and objects. A treat, and not just for voyeurs.
