"Cut & Mix – Cultural Appropriation and Artistic Statement: Contemporary Art from Peru and Chile" is the second exhibition in the series "Cultural Transfers". It presents works by artists from Santiago de Chile and Lima. However, it is not primarily the South-American origin of the works but rather a certain attitude and artistic approach that takes centre stage in this exhibition, which was curated by Eva-Christina Meier. The presented installations, sculptures, drawings and videos easily combine different cultural contexts and disciplines. This productive use of 'foreign' materials by the arts can in many ways be considered as exemplary in the context of a discussion about the possibilities of cultural exchange.
