The research process can thus be characterized as an exploratory dynamic, along the boundary between knowledge and ignorance. The fundamental problem resides in the fact that we do not exactly know what we do not know. ––– Hans-Jörg Rheinberger

What I postulate is the idea of identity as being like a seed, and while we grow, a myriad of things happen. We change every time we encounter another person. ––– Stuart Hall

Martha Büchel-Hilti und Hanni Schierscher’s exhibition is based on two publications from Kunstvereins Schichtwechsel’s POSITIONEN + DISKURSE series. This includes work done by the two artists on texts by the Jamaican-British cultural scientist Stuart Hall and the Liechtensteinian science historian Hans-Jörg Rheinberger. Rheinberger discusses the art of exploring the unknown, whilst Hall concerns himself with the question of identity, which he likens to a seed that is ever-changing. Hanni Schierscher und Martha Büchel-Hilti’s work is showcased alongside selected excerpts.
