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.


Broken Spaces

The exhibition catalogue Broken Spaces shows how artists play with projected, folded or shattered planes and spaces, where the boundary between two- and three-dimensionality is as ambivalent as that between object and space. Three-dimensional objects can appear like drawings in the space. Plastic structures are based on transformed planar forms, like silhouettes cast by shadows. Even if precise mathematical and geometrical calculations form the basis, the sensorial result reveals surprising poetic and creative qualities.
