Throughout his life, Christoph Schlingensief (Oberhausen, 1960–Berlin, 2010) transgressed artistic and institutional boundaries in his oeuvre, which spans film, theater, opera, performance and installation. His works comment on and react to their social contexts, touching on topics such as fascism, German history, religion, the institution of the family and media representations of current events. His radical, challenging demands for reaction and dedication from his collaborators secure Schlingensief’s exceptional position in contemporary art discourse.
