Schmitz reactivates waste by recycling found plastic bags into wind-activated sculptures. Installed in the city landscape, they serve as three-dimensional, moving screens for her video-projections. In Between shows images from the Mediterranean, creating simultaneous impressions of leisure and drowning, referencing the current refugee crisis in Europe: asking questions about privilege, waste, wealth distribution, racism, and disparities in the value of human life.
Claudia Schmitz’s interventions can be found in New York City, Berlin, Budapest, Chemnitz (Karl-Marx-Stadt) and Hong Kong
and this documentation via QR-Codes in the cities.
