Taus Makhacheva in The Border: Exhibition Project of Goethe Institute, Museum and Exhibition Complex of the Russian Academy of Arts

January 31, 2017

Where does Europe end and Asia begin? What is the influence of borders and who draws them? The exhibition “The Border” studies and analyses borders as territorial isolations or on the contrary accessions, as cultural or social barriers, as an instrument separating “us” from the “others”. The “red line” here is a geographical and cultural border between Europe and Asia. The artists involved in the project are approaching the theme extending the scope of the political and economical and focus on cultural, artistic, personal and humorous aspects. Exhibition is curated by Inke Arns and Thibaut de Ruyter. Exhibition continues until 26 February
