Kunsthal Extra City is temporarily closed. Working from the former Dominican Monastery on the main site of AAIR we are currently in the process of realizing our new exhibition space. We will reopen our doors at this new location in spring 2021.

‘Cross-Examinations’ is an exercise in writing, erasing, and rewriting. Its four, increasingly layered iterations interrogate issues pertaining to torture, pain, and being. They engage a series of texts and works, such as an exchange between Heidegger and Jünger, poetry by John Donne and Jean Daive, a novel by Nachoem Wijnberg, Cranach’s ‘The Martyrdom of Saint Catherine’, Broodthaers’s ‘Fémur d’homme belge’ and ‘Fémur de la femme française’. A constant attempt to reassess its own claims, ‘Cross-Examinations’ is a palimpsest, printed and reprinted until the ink becomes page.” Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei ‘Cross-Examinations’ A publication produced by Extra City Kunsthal.
