CLAIRbyKahn is pleased to unveil Schwelle (“Threshold”), a series of unique multimedia works by photographer Oliver Mark in collaboration with visual artist Tim Plamper.

After being invited by Mark to alter his photographs, Plamper co-created this series using soil taken from the former Inner German Border, reopening wounds of the past in a gesture that expands our understanding of the geopolitical disputes of today.
