Verunsichtbarungen entlang Grenzformationen – Drawing from San Diego/Tijuana
The project examines images of (scientific) knowledge and power in the border cities Tijuana San Diego (USA), searches for invisibilities and that which is potentially subversive and develops fictionalized narratives for the production of (un)knowledge and (un)truths from and for a European border perspective. Documents, technical drawings and excerpts from documentary films are made into „cover versions“ that is, tracings are produced in human border milk. The purpose is openly emphasizing the affective aspects of the images.
Film sequences are developed on the basis of (historical) models and projected within showrooms and the public space. Thus, walls of the public space are “soaked” with milk, a hyper-subjectivized perspective straight from the body turned to the outside. And the regular processes of the production of knowledge, that on the one hand take place due to processes of abstraction and objectivication and on the other hand due to the publications demanded by sponsors are mimetically reproduced (persiflage).
