Corinna Schnitt Von einer Welt

We are pleased to present the in Corinna Schnitt’s third solo exhibition at Galerie Olaf Stüber two of her recent works:‘Of one World’ and ‘The playground’

Bararba Engelbach writes about the installation ‘Of one World’ which was realized by The ‘Edition Bewegter Bilder’ - a cooperation between Museum Ludwig and the collection Rheingold: “In her latest work … the artist presents female nudes embedded in a broad, paradisiacal landscape, while the sole male moves about like a stranger and his attempts to make erotic contact elicit no response. These images are accompanied by passages from Jürgen Habermas’s ‘The Theory of Communicative Action’, which compel the viewer to assume a reflective distance – one that Antonioni deliberately avoided in his famous desert scene in ‘Zabriskie Point’. Not for the first time Schnitt focuses in her video on the subjects of originality and immediacy, which can only be brought to light through staging before being developed into images.”
