Michael Hirschbichler: Schnittlinien/ Cutting Lines

Schnittlinien/ Cut­ting Lines” presents a cross sec­tion through sev­er­al bod­ies of work that artist Michael Hirschbich­ler pro­duced dur­ing a stay at Vil­la Mas­si­mo in Rome in 2015. These works are con­nect­ed along the­mat­ic lines and attempt to reveal and inves­ti­gate ‘cut­ting lines’ in var­i­ous ways: cut­ting lines, at which his­toric world views and cul­tur­al con­cepts inter­sect and along which the present can be seen to unfold; cut­ting lines, upon which cul­tur­al, social and reli­gious cat­e­gories are con­struct­ed; and cut­ting lines, which estab­lish spa­tial divi­sions as vio­lent bor­der­lines.
