Inmitten imperialer Gitter | Amid Imperial Grids
- Documents a unique site-specific installation by Dor Guez at the Felix Nussbaum Haus in Osnabrück, designed by Daniel Libeskind
In his work, Dor Guez (b. 1982) explores the relationship between art, memory, storytelling and historiography. The examination of archives, maps, and local narratives has become the hallmark of his approach. Amid Imperial Grids was born out of his artistic analysis of the work of artist Felix Nussbaum and the Felix Nussbaum Haus in Osnabrück, designed by Daniel Libeskind. Here, Guez has created a truly unique site-specific installation based on the interweaving of biography and history, the past and memory, cartography, and the demarcation of borders. He addresses the peculiarities of the architecture and creates a content-rich spatial setting that reflects on concepts such as nation, culture, history, identity, territoriality, and geopolitics.
