''Her voice is scarcely audible, drowned by the wind sweeping over the snow-covered clearing. She lies there motionless, eyes wide open, only her hands still moving as if she were trying to shake off some bothersome insect. He kneels down beside her, takes her right hand in his. Gently, he strokes her cold skin with his fingers. There's no more he can do. Then he tries to grasp what has happened. He has eliminated a dozen targets over the years, but never the wriong one.'' [excerpt from the book]
In the highly charged area between reality and fiction, Karin Sander commissioned two acclaimed crime-fiction authors, Oliver Bottini and Zoë Beck, to write a story each especially for her solo exhibition at Kunstmuseum Winterthur, Switzerland, 2018. Unlike the usual catalogue texts that accompany art exhibitions, the text itself is turned into an artwork.
Four different book covers were designed for Oliver Bottini's novel.
