Thomas Kilpper (D) - from “The Ring”

In his floor cuttings, Berlin artist Thomas Kilpper, born in Stuttgart, engages with German history. His large scale
intervention on 1,600 square meters offers a historical retrospective on various state concepts of surveillance
and repression, from the Nazi period to the digital present. The divided history of Germany that can be read in this building and in the cut motifs and imprints in the floor is also one of resistance against systems of injustice. In this work, Kilpper chronicles the history of both German states and the events from 1989/90 until today.
