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.


Nadia Kaabi-Linke

Nadia Kaabi-Linke was born 1978 in Tunis, Tunisia, and lives and works in Berlin and Tunis. Her practice can be read as a kind of documentary sculpture, creating an indexical relationship with the world and people around her. Her works have made visible such every­day phenomena as the bodily traces of people waiting at bus stops and scrapes of paint chips from various city walls, which she suspends in the air to create new cartographies. On a more somber register, an ongoing project, Impunities, in­volves creating an impression of the physical marks left on the bodies of women who have suffered domestic abuse.
