Bios and Backgrounds


Explanatory territories:

Territory refers to the entire area belonging to a state. The term national territory is also frequently used. Sovereign rights apply throughout the territory.

A territory is the area within which a state exercises state power (and thus its sovereign rights).

The national territory is to be distinguished from the sovereign territory.

As a rule, state territory and territory coincide, but there may also be areas within a state's territory - such as on the basis of diplomatic missions or special agreements (e.g. in the case of Guantanamo Bay in Cuba) - within which the respective state does not exercise sovereignty - for the benefit of another state or another subject of international law.

Covini (born in Germany, 1960) always saw work on art as fundamental work on knowledge. Since 2000, participation in exhibitions. Always on the side, because the production of explicitly artistic works was important to her, but not the motivation of her work. She worked a long time as TV journalist in Switzerland. Basically, Covini sees her artistic work as an irritating interaction that tells how life goes beyond its own subjective limits. The digital image, in particular, allows her to present those dimensions in her own visual vocabulary (as an aesthetically resilient material). She lives and works in Berlin and Mexico City.
