«The Berlin-based artist has made a body of work that often explores the phenomenon of sound as a visual, material, experiential, and narrative medium, one heard or remembered, audible or silent, offered by another or originated in the speaker/receiver.» Quinn Latimer
Quinn Latimer, the American writer and author of the text The Signature of the Siren Is the Silence After, published in the exhibition catalogue, has written about sound in Katja Auflegers works. In the artist talk, Latimer will talk with the artist about artworks with and without sound and put them into relation to the current exhibition. Curator Lisa Grenzebach will moderate the talk.
We would like to invite you to tune in and ask questions at the end of the event.

With his kinetic artworks, Jean Tinguely (1925–1991) was a pioneering figure in the art of the period after 1950. Museum Tinguely, designed by Mario Botta, is located directly at the Rhine and presents the world’s largest collection of his work, of which a selection is on permanent display, from the delicate early reliefs to the monumental machine sculptures of the 1980s.
Museum Tinguely shows a varied exhibition programme that seeks dialogue with other artists, art forms and disciplines, promising an interactive museum experience for all of the senses.
A diverse programme of events – with guided tours and workshops for all age groups, concerts, artistic interventions and interdisciplinary cooperations – allows visitors to experience the museum’s collection and exhibitions in a wide range of ways.
