"Shifting Ground" by Christina Zimmermann and Dominique Turzer
In the JAPAN : SHIFTED exhibit, German and Japanese artists tell their story of the disaster of 3/11 beyond the usual media images. These tender personal experiences speak not only of the events, but of Japan itself. Thus, the external perspective is augmented by an internal one. Circling around a centre represented by nature and its powers, the works shift from a “before” to the catastrophic events and an “after”. The exhibit is curated by Jiré E. Gözen.
