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.


Thomas Zipp

Comparative Investigation about the Disposition of the Width of a Circle
Using numerous exhibition views, this book documents Thomas Zipp’s production as part of the Collateral Events’ of the 55th Venice Biennial 2013. The artist has installed a version of a psychiatric unit dealing with hysteria and schizophrenia, with himself as both patient and doctor. Zipp delves into the unconscious and explores the effects of drugs, heavy metal and religion, as well as the hidden aspects of psychiatry and psychoanalysis.
