ZEIGEN. An audio tour through the collection of the GfZK Leipzig, Galerie für zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig
2017 03 17 – 2018 01 14
In her project ZEIGEN. An audio tour, Karin Sander invited artists whose work is featured in the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art Leipzig (GfZK) to make an acoustic contribution, with the aim of making their artistic working methods audible - and also visible - for the museum‘s visitors. The names of the ca. 150 participating artists are written on the white wall of the otherwise “empty” exhibition space, along
with a code number, allowing visitors to select individual contributions. The works, imagined in various ways, arise inside the heads of the visitors, gaining an enormous presence in spite of their physical absence.
Karin Sander‘s exhibition project ZEIGEN. An audio tour, which she began in 2004, is based on an audible collection of works especially compiled by the artist for individual locations. It has been shown in various museums and institutions including the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, the Temporäre Kunsthalle Berlin, the Abteiberg Museum Mönchengladbach, the Nikolai Konsthall Copenhagen and the Kunsthalle Karlsruhe.
