Her involvement in the Berlin punk scene made her a target for the Stasi, East Germanys intelligence organization, and after emigrating to the West in 1984, she lost possession of all of her previous works.

Despite these obstacles, Schleime has made a name for herself in the contemporary art scene. Her expressive childrens portraits and paintings of Pope John Paul II have earned her accolades, as have her unusual techniques. For Schleime, art is as much about process as product, and the artist often begins her paintings with scratching and scarring marks.

Her use of coffee grounds, sand, glue, and shellac creates a patina that imbues her work with a sense of antiquity. This collection features an interview in which the artist discusses her most recent work, Love Affairs, a section of color plates that reproduce the cycle as well as earlier works. Private material from Schleimes personal archives and a brief biography are also included.
