Karin Sander's work is a reflection on the self-image of art. Her thoughts on the formative spatial and institutional conditions of art shape the specific character of her response, which is broad- based. In addition to wall pieces, she has designed and produced fabric spaces, peepholes and show boxes. Light, form and the material characteristics of the spaces in which her works are presented are the elements from which she constructs her art. Her interventions are adapted so closely to the respective context that they often lie at the outer limits of perceptibility. The viewer is often confronted with himself and his own expectations. In full-page colour plates, this volume not only documents Sander's installation at the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen but also introduces readers to her most important works of recent years in an extensive series of photographs. The artist: Karin Sander, born 1957 in Bensberg, North-Rhine Westfalia; studied art at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart; 1988: first solo exhibition; 1989: DAAD fellowship in New York.
