► Monday: A Blink of an Eye – Cornelia Schleime

Born in the GDR, artist Cornelia Schleime was part of the movement against East Germany’s policy of censorship. Exploring a range of art forms from painting to poetry, to performance, and film,, while devising her own alternative and experimental approach, Schleime’s work was ultimately banned in 1981. Almost all her work disappeared after her relocation to West Berlin in 1984. Since then, she recreated some of the lost artworks. Her primary focus has been on portraits with a hint of fantasy.
