NEW YORK, NY.- Goethe-Institute New York's current presentation of Felix Kindermann's newest exhibition "Mine and Yours: Forms of Distinction" will be ending in two days, for which this is the last call to be able to see it. "Mine and Yours: Forms of Distinction" deals with boundries, whether mental or physical ones, especially fences separating private and public space, the have from the have-not.

Our built environment is full of structures that both constrict and facilitate movement. From the architecture of public and private buildings, to city planning and subway systems, to national borders and jurisdictional limits, to the languages we speak and the ones we do not, imagined and real boundaries define and condition how we move in the world and how we interact within it.

In this exhibition, "Mine and Yours: Forms of Distinction", Felix Kindermann takes up the ubiquity of fences and their social function in New York City. Observing that many fences at residences and public spaces are too short to truly prevent a persistent visitor from crossing, Kindermann posits the fence as a structure of sociality. At once, they act as symbols of class and wealth, delimit and open the space between personal and private, and elucidates who belongs in a given space—and who does not. Fences keep out, but also let in.

Kindermann’s practice has long centered the relationships between people in response to their environments, with a particular focus on themes of togetherness and separation within communities. These works consider the interhuman encounter shaped by the structure of the fence and the notion of reciprocal actions. In this exhibition, Kindermann posits new photographic and installation artworks that negotiate the complex tension between the production and possession of these social boundaries.

Felix Kindermann is a visual artist from Germany based in Brussels. Kindermann, who earned a Diploma in Industrial Design from HfbK (Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg) and an MFA from Sint-Lukas Brussels, is Visiting Professor of Mixed Media and Sculpture at Sint-Lucas Ghent. His work has been exhibited at Museum Ludwig and Simultanhalle, Cologne; KANAL- Centre Pompidou, Brussels; Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst, Ghent; and Lewis Center for the Arts, Princeton, among others. He is recipient of the fellowship of the Flemish Community in Belgium and currently Artist in Residence at ISCP, New York.
