Lotte Maiwald's artistic approach deals with the interdependent relationship between the human body and its external environment. Her naive looking, very colorful, partly space-grasping paintings on simple nettle fabric are simply tacked to the wall. What appears to be harmless turns out to be a world you don't want to live in. Although their concrete reference to place and time cannot be determined, the depictions refer to the process of marking, demarcating, and securing a certain terrain.
