BIRTH! SCHOOL! WORK! DEATH!
the little house we used to live in

Idea, concept and realization: SCHWARZ | STEINWIDDER, 2019

BIRTH! SCHOOL! WORK! DEATH! is the artistic collaboration between Stephan Schwarz and Anita Steinwidder.
Their works evolve around the love of unloved, discarded, scrapped and forgotten things, and their attempt to retrieve the poetry that dwells within. The removal of these things from their original context by, for example, reworking and rearranging them, in order to rediscover them in a new context, is the result of the creative language shared by SCHWARZ and STEINWIDDER.


BIRTH! SCHOOL! WORK! DEATH! deals with the undeniable “facts”: life, death and the “in between”. Most importantly though, it deals with what is and remains to be our very own: the heart – the personal “shrine”.

“The little house” is translated into 5 shrine-like objects. Their outer skin appears tightly interwoven, enfolded and enmeshed. Here and there, the inward breaks out, allowing insights. Object 6, a mask laced up with belts, stands alone, evoking associations of unfree thought, speech and hearing.
