11.09. – 15.11.2020, extended through 10.01.2021


The Brno House of Arts, Brno, Poland

The aim is to present trends in visual art whose common denominator is work with minimal or diminished differentia or nuance constituting an opposite to prominent contrast – including ephemeral objects provoking the perception experience through dissolving solid forms, material instability, semantic vagueness, permeability of contexts, etc. The event is also a reminder of the clandestine action/exhibition of the artists Stano Filko, Miloš Laky and Ján Zavarský entitled White Space in a White Space, which took place in the House of Arts more than forty years ago (1974). With works by Josef Dabernig, Ann Veronica Janssens, Žilvinas Kempinas, Karin Sander, Bill Viola, Martin Vongrej, Heimo Zobernig.

Skulptur / Sculpture / Scultura


The new catalogue by Karin Sander, like many of her monographs, presents itself with its own concept, its own logic, its own order on 224 pages, in three languages. The sequence of the illustrations is based on the size of the works, from the smallest to the largest work, and in the same way the illustrations are shown in relation to the work from small to large, pushing the respective text to the work to the edge of the page in ever smaller font sizes. Andreas Uebele was responsible for concept, design and typesetting.

The catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition Skulptur / Sculpture / Scultura at Museion Bozen in collaboration with buero uebele.

With text contributions by Letizia Ragaglia, Marion Ackermann, Marius Babias, Konrad Bitterli, Marc Glöde, Alistair Rider, John Waters, Harald Welzer et al.

>>Open Codes?<<

Group exhibition at Kunstraum Leuphana University of Lüneburg, a collaboration with the ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe

This curatorial re-presentation draws on two defining moments of contemporary artistic practice, namely the installation and the interactive – and asserts a synchronic logic against the prevailing, diachronic imaginary of the digital. The “Open Codes” trailer asks how these articulative idioms are themselves shaped by the very technological developments – most notably, computer-assisted graphic design and artificial intelligence – under investigation in the ZKM exhibition.

Opening times: Friday, June 14th (exceptionally) as well as June 17th – July 2nd, Mondays through Thursdays, from 11:00-18.00

Publishing Date: 07.09.2018

In the highly charged area between reality and fiction, Karin Sander has commissioned two acclaimed crime-fiction authors to write a story each especially for her solo exhibition at Kunst Museum Winterthur. Unlike the usual catalogue texts that accompany art exhibitions, the text itself is turned into an artwork. The two crime stories by renowned and award-winning authors, Zoë Beck and Oliver Bottini, carry the reader off to a completely fictional world that collides with the reality of the art created by the artist.

Karin Sander im Gespräch

SWR2 Zeitgenossen
in der Staatlichen Kunsthalle Baden-Baden

Die Künstlerin Karin Sander entwickelt spezifisch ortsbezogene Arbeiten, die immer auf neue Weise den Blick schärfen, für die komplexe Beziehung zwischen dem Kunstwerk und seinem "Träger", sei dies die Wand, der Raum oder die gesamte Institution. Im Gespräch mit Dietrich Brants erzählt Karin Sander von ihren Begegnungen in der Kunstwelt und vom künstlerischen Medium "Ausstellung".
