Mark the Line is an examination of “the line,” not only as a sign of stylistic expression embodied in works of art, but a symbol, the direct, often unmediated expression of intellectual and psychological content. The exhibition explores the line’s constant presence in our lives, how it, materially and immaterially, always affects and restricts. It focuses upon the line as both signalling division and creating a unity of space, charged with profound political, emotive or social implications. In its simplicity, the line sustains itself as a potent expression of political messages and humane action.

The exhibition gathers issues around “territory”; how one space is demarcated from another. What are the current strategies from artistic to social to political claiming or reclaiming marked land? And how have artists attended to these subjects where we see growing political tension and cultural conflict around the world?

Curators: Mikael Nanfeldt, Director Göteborgs Konsthall and Liv Stoltz, Curator Göteborgs Konsthall
