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.



Mad Geometry
For Esther Stocker, the dissolution and fragmentation of precise shapes is the starting point for paintings, photographic works, installations and interventions on façades. Her geometric sign- and grid systems are also extended into the third dimension and are altered by the artistic interventions of space and architecture, with intentional disruptions and visual caesuras forming a key element. This art book documenting Stocker’s extensive work is supplemented by an art-history essay by Karine Tissot and Monika Machnicki as well as an in-depth conversation between Günther Oberhollenzer and the Vienna-based artist.
