‘Claudia Shneider’s Installations and paintings will be directed as an assault towards the physical state of its audience. The moment of the assault and the challenge of involuntary reactions will be continued in further proceeding.’ I’m still not sure what it means, but it speaks to me far more tangibly than overused academic language.

With thanks to the Kreuzberg Pavillon
