Dominik Schmitt is a painter and illustrator and also creates filmic works, sculptures, installations, music, and lyric poetry. His confusing, melancholy imagery shows the inside of bodies of animals, human beings, and mysterious hybrid creatures.


Osteuropa in der zeitgenössischen Fotografie
What role does contemporary photography play in the discussion of the multi-layered concept of ‘homeland’, and as a medium which both shapes perceptions and constitutes memories? Since the end of the Cold War, the question of identity-establishing reference points in the countries of Eastern and Central Eastern Europe is of especial importance. The exhibition catalogue highlights this issue from both a historical and present-day perspective against the backdrop of sociopolitical change. The pictorial worlds emerging from both internal and external points of view create a delicate balance between past and future, tradition and progress, and local and global developments.
