»Human Territoriality«

Roger Eberhard

Borders are a means of separation. They separate two sides, defining a here and athere. But they also delineate what lies within the boundaries, instilling a sense of safety and security. Although they implicitly stake a claim to permanence, nothing is as changeable as boundary lines. So it is ironic that people and entire nations should develop so much pride and protectionism on the basis of existing borders, while they are artificial constructs that are constantly changing and sometimes disappearing altogether.”
– Roger Eberhard

“Human Territoriality” is a selection of Roger Eberhard’s photographs of former border regions around the globe and down through the course of human history. Some of these borders have shifted over time, by only a few hundred meters or much more, due to climate change or man-made changes in the landscape, others have vanished with the fall of mighty empires on either side. Eberhard’s photographs, supplemented by in-depth captions, help us to grasp the protean puzzle of the world’s cartography. In a time of mass migration, border walls and spreading nationalism, they reveal the inherent instability of these man-made demarcations.

Works by Roger Eberhard (*1984 Zürich, Switzerland) are exhibited internationally and found in important collections, both public and private. He lives and works in Stallikon (CH) and in Berlin. Former book publications include “Standard” (Scheidegger & Spiess, Zürich, 2016), “Norma” (Peperoni Books, Berlin, 2013) and “Wilted Country” (Scheidegger & Spiess, Zürich, 2010). The book to the series “Human Territoriality” is published by Edition Patrick Frey, Zürich, 2020.

Update, July 2020:
With its new YouTube channel “Gallery Talks”, Robert Morat Galerie presents a series of short videos that provide an opportunity to hear artists speak about the concepts & ideas behind the projects exhibited in the Berlin gallery. In the first episode, Swiss artist Roger Eberhard talks about “Human Territoriality”, his current show that is on view at the gallery until September 19th.
