Abstract (English)

This two-part catalogue, published on the occasion of Frenkel's touring exhibition of video intallations and website project, contains essays by six authors who address a wide range of issues and concerns dealt with in the works. Topics discussed include: the experiences of being a stranger/foreigner, exile, migration, memory, history, identity and belonging. The essays also situate Frenkel's hybrid cultural practice within contexts of the Freudian model of trauma, the disappearance of artworks intended for the Führer Museum in Linz, and Sweden's refugee policy. Includes transcribed excerpts from the video component of "Body Missing". Texts in English, Swedish and German (one text by Schade in Swedish and German only). Biographical notes on artist and authors. Circa. 70 bibl. ref.
