In 1993 the US-American artist Andrea Fraser realised the exhibition project Eine Gesellschaft des Geschmacks with and at the Kunstverein München. In the run-up to it she interviewed board members of the Kunstverein on questions of self-conception and taste. She arranged the answers into an audio collage that could be heard in the Kunstverein’s exhibition rooms, the written version was printed in a publication. Artworks borrowed from the board members that were partly mentioned in the audio installation were also part of the exhibition and publication.
