Soundfair was an exhibition collective based in Berlin comprising of Ari Benjamin Meyers (artist and composer), Clara Meister (curator based in Berlin), and Thomas Mayer (co-founder of Soundfair). Soundfair was set as its purpose the re-contextualization of music through the auditive exhibiting of music as unique artworks. Its goal was to establish a context for composed sound to be understood and consumed as an artwork and to exhibit music as a means of artistic expression, largely without any visual component or implied visual strategy. Soundfair: Exhibiting Music works as a reader as well as a catalogue, documenting all Soundfair performances and projects from the five years of existence (2008-2013). It also includes texts and images by various artists responding to this topic, including Janet Cardiff, Annika Eriksson, Douglas Gordon, Bo Christian Larsson, Arto Lindsay, Olaf Nicolai and Anri Sala.
