Alexander Kluge, Katharina Grosse

Wolfgang Schwärzler

„The SEPARATRIX is an interface. According to Niklas Luhmann’s theory, the border between a system and the environment. The place where two CONTRADICTIONS meet, and there, where they touch, the two form not only a dividing line or border, but tiny, infinitesimal embassies within one another. One sees this in Katharina Grosse’s watercolors where blue and red (that is, contrasting colors) beget countless nuances within the transitional spaces where they bleed into each other. But one can also see it at work in the rich gray tones when we filmmakers shoot not during the day or at night but at dusk and dawn. Nowhere but in this autumnal interface of night and day is there such a vast scale of gray tones. The separatrix between artists — the more powerful, the more different they are — is similar.“ (Alexander Kluge)

The SEPARATRIX Project continues Spector Books’ series of small-format India paper editions with Alexander Kluge that we began with Napoleon Kommentar and Schramme am Himmel: Nachrichten vom Helden Hagen.
