Desire Lines

Baltensperger + Siepert, 2013

Desire Lines by Stefan Baltensperger + David Siepert

 

The line and its aesthetic expression has a long tradition in art history. A simple stroke, a line, is able to open up worlds or keep an artist‘s attention for his/her whole life.

For the series Desire Lines we asked asylum seekers in Switzerland to draw their individual routes from their home country to where they are now. We placed a paper on top of a map and had the asylum seekers draw their journeys. The results are simple lines, which detached from their context are nothing but a formal aesthetic reference. But within the context of those people these lines tell stories about precarious lives, personal tragedy, and the hope for a new life in a new and better world.

Die Linie und ihr ästhetischer Ausdruck hat eine lange Tradition in der Kunstgeschichte. Ein simpler Strich, eine Linie, kann ganze Welten erschliessen und Künstler und Künstlerinnen ein Leben lang beschäftigen.

Für die Serie Desire Lines baten Baltensperger + Siepert Asyl Suchende in der Schweiz, auf einem Blatt Papier, das über eine Karte gelegt wurde, die Route ihrer Reise zu zeichnen. Es entstanden Zeichnungen mit einfachen Linien, die vom Kontext gelöst lediglich auf ästhetische Referenzen verweisen. Im Kontext erzählen sie prekäre Geschichten von persönlichen Schicksalen und stehen stellvertretend für die Hoffnung auf ein Leben in einer neuen, besseren Welt.
