Karin Sander's presentation as part of The Window series centers on her site-specific work 37°32'13.199"N 126°59'17.352"E, presented in the street-facing window. Characteristic of Sander's conceptual practice, this work has a tautology at its core; the title of the work also names the location where it is installed and constitutes its only visual manifestation, black vinyl character on the wall spelling out the coordinates of the site. The work is radically site-specific, as it cannot exist outside this one location without changing appearance. At the same time, it is endlessly adaptable: when installed at a new location, its characters will change, as will its title.
With this gesture of site-specificity, the work epitomizes central themes of Sander's oeuvre, namely engaging with situations, their social and historical contexts, and creating interventions in existing structures and institutions to produce minimalist works of great precision.
