Contested Grounds – Contested Colors, Films, Installations and a Book by Arthur and Corinne Cantrill, Mareike Bernien, Kerstin Schroedinger and Inas Halabi

About

In their films Arthur and Corinne Cantrill research the relationship between landscape, indigenous history, cinema, and politics. Their three-color technique draws on James Clerk Maxwells's additive theory of color mixing (1861). The static, invariable elements are reproduced in perfect natural colors, while the moving elements (clouds, foliage, shadows) appear in 'unnatural' primary colors. Installation artists Mareike Bernien and Kerstin Schroedinger have researched the ideological implications of colors in diffrent contexts. What becomes visible in color pictures and what is it that we don't see?  "A rumour has no color and can't be seen, but it spreads faster than fire underneath your own two feet" says Inas Halabi, whose publication The Red Book (2017) is part of the exhibition. Contested Grounds – Contested Colors looks at the relations between the works.
