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.


Mind Games. Works on Paper

Barbara Schmidt Heins
The Hamburg artist Barbara Schmidt Heins draws upon the source of words circulating in everyday life, which in her works on paper are charged with multi-layered meanings. In her compositions, the mass-medial fragments of language receive autonomy and poetic depth. The formally reduced verbal ready-mades integrated in formally reduced architecturally constructive pictorial spaces act as catalysts for new interpretations in the minds of the recipients. In the sense of the writer Jean Paul, the stories thus triggered give “width to thought,” initiating a mental game without frontiers, in which both the audience and the artist are participants.
