A site-specific textual work in a narrow (1,1m), high (3,5m) and long (16m) exhibition space of the museum, placed against the windows. The shape of the space does not allow stepping back and reading the text in full. The work can be only seen and read from within.
The word GRENZERFAHRUNG is a compound of two terms: border and learning. The work is a follow-up to the video installation Border of Cognition (2007), whose text is written in Hebrew.
The German-language version is a response to the Hebrew original. The aim of this work was to create the opportunity for dialogue between two cultures and languages entangled in history, by hampering the perception of the texts but also by pointing to their meanings.
The work is in the Museum Modern Art collection, Hunfeld, Germany.
