The Book as an Exhibition Space 

Sandra Peters presents her recently released book PER/TRANS. Performing the Cube, Transforming the Cube: Works by Sandra Peters 1998–2007. This extensive monograph presents more than 20 complex work ensembles. For some pieces, which have not to date been presented to a larger public, this publication represents a premiere. This publication is the product of a so to speak artistic-curatorial process that has lasted a number of years. Its inception goes back to the year 2016, when the artist rented a 700 m² hall in Berlin, which she converted into a temporary display space. Working together with a technical team she had assembled personally, Peters then began to configure her installations in the space. In close collaboration with the photographer Jens Ziehe, the resulting arrangement was documented in high visual quality. This new publication, with its retrospective orientation, contains many of these work series, photographed in situ, along with additional materials, also previously unpublished. Sandra Peters will speak about the contents of her oeuvre, along with the genesis and production of the monograph.This book presentation becomes an occasion to discuss questions concerning the relationship between exhibition and book formats, and to speak in new way about private and public, about publicity and modes of presentation in relation to specific and general viewpoints.
