ÜBERSEE BOOK FROM ANNETTE SCHRÖTER
20.03.2020

Annette Schröter cuts her pictures, works with the cutter, paper, sprays, colored acrylic glass and wallpaper scraps. Since 2015, Annette Schröter has made several trips to South and North America, including Buenos Aires, Montevideo, New York, Vancouver and Montreal. Her impressions, especially of everyday culture, architecture and vegetation, are reflected in an extensive group of paper cuts. The "silhouette", a technique that is particularly known from the 18th and 19th centuries and was often used by laypeople, deliberately serves as a contemporary artistic expression. Schröter not only explores the diverse and previously underestimated possibilities of this technology. In her work, she also questions content-related and artistic clichés that we associate with the term ÜBERSEE. This comes from a time when people - obeying existential hardship - left their homeland, but on the other hand it always stood for the unreachable distance and the exotic unknown as the goal of all desires - for 28 euros with us or at MMKoehn Verlag
