Cornelia Schleime (*1953, Berlin) is not only an important painter for the German East-West conflict, but also works as a performer, filmmaker and auotrin. She has received some of Germany's most important art awards, including most recently the Hannah Höch Prize in 2016. What is special about Cornelia Schleime's art is the political context in which her works can be seen. Schleime uses artistic space as a free sphere to trigger social issues that surround us. For example, she has devoted herself artistically to problematizing the GDR era or creates works in connection with feminist issues..
