This publication documents Rivane Neuenschwander's first comprehensive solo exhibition in the German-speaking world.The artist, born in Brazil in 1967, traces fears and hopes in her multifaceted work, showing how they shape people and societies. Her work is characterized by a keen interest in cultural, psychological and sociological issues. The full breadth of her interests is reflected in this publication.It includes a conversation with Christiane Meyer-Stoll that took place over the entire exhibition period, providing an in-depth insight into Neuenschwander's understanding of herself as an artist; an essay by the Portuguese sociologist Boaventura de Sousa Santos deals with the 'Uncertainty Between Fear and Hope'; the cut-up poems by writer Anna Ospelt - an outgrowth of the exhibition - testify to Neuenschwander's trust in the power of poetry, which permeates her entire oeuvre, as does the title 'knife does not cut fire', which is taken from a poem by the lyricist Herberto Helder.Published on occasion of the exhibition 'Rivane Neuenschwander - knife does not cut fire', 11 Nov 2021 - 24 Apr 2022, Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, Vaduz.Design by Sylvia Fröhlich.English and German text.
