The exhibition Performing the Border presents artistic works which are not satisfied with the obvious and evident and choose to focus their attention beyond to the outside. In a present time, where large parts of the globe are marked by racism, isolation, restricted freedom of the press, and “post-factual” debates, the artists plot scenarios in which the dubious categories of the “own” and the “foreign” can become tangible for the viewer. They conceive the complex field of national, ethnic, social, digital, and sexual identity as a realm for experiment.

This exhibition is curated by our LGC-colleague Jana J. Haeckel and Petra Poelzl.
