Manuel Pelmus “Borderlines”
In Borderlines, Manuel Pelmus revisits past performances and personal histories and aggregates notions of visibility and invisibility in connection to history and politics of representation.
These histories playfully move back and forth in time and space, updating and reflecting on the notion of boundaries, may they be boundaries between states or boundaries between artistic disciplines. The artist uses his own memories of the passing of borders, after the fall of the Berlin wall.
Borderlines was first commissioned by the Centre Pompidou Paris (2019), in the context of “MOVE” festival, curated by Caroline Ferreira.
