For 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 translating their own work into something audible – and also visible – for the museum‘s visitors. The names of the approximately 150 participating artists are installed on the white walls of the otherwise “empty” exhibition space, along with a number, allowing visitors to select individual contributions using an audio guide. 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 initiated in 2004, is based on an audible collection of works compiled by the artist for individual locations. It has been shown in various museums and institutions including Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, Temporäre Kunsthalle Berlin, Abteiberg Museum Mönchengladbach, Nikolai Konsthall Copenhagen and Kunsthalle Karlsruhe.

Karin Sander, born in Bensberg, Germany, studied Fine Art and Art History at the Art Academy Stuttgart and I.S.P., Whitney Museum, New York.

Her works have been shown in numerous international exhibitions and are included in private and public art collections, such as The Museum of Modern Art, New York and San Francisco, The Metropolitain Museum of Art, New York, National Museum of Art, Osaka, Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, Staatsgalerie and Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, and Hirshhorn Museum Washington.
