On the occasion of Haus am Waldsee’s re-opening in the end of September, we will present a comprehensive solo exhibition with Karin Sander. The work of this award-winning artist, who has lived in Berlin and Zurich since 2000 and teaches architecture and art at ETH Zurich, is well-known and exhibited worldwide. Works by Karin Sander are present in numerous international collections and exhibitions.

Throughout all phases of her work, Karin Sander demonstrates the extra-ordinary consistency with which she pursues her own artistic strategy. In her "Patina Paintings", for example, it becomes clear how images take shape in situ and how they portray their surroundings both in concrete and in metaphorical ways. This September, she will surprise us with a subtle yet humorous exhibition that is especially designed for Haus am Waldsee.

Karin Sander often works with the spatial and historical conditions of her exhibition venues. Her show at Haus am Waldsee that can be seen as a kind of "retrospective", not only documents her numerous works since the early 1990s but also addresses its location, the building itself. After 73 years of continuous exhibition activity, it has been brought back to its original state of the years of construction, 1922/23, and now stands before us freshly renovated.
