Art offers an opportunity to set a mark. Thus Karin Hannaks art work ¡°ETAS¡± may be considered as a vision of a life in peace on our planet. In five parts presented on all continents at the same time, the art work symbolically unites people expressing that love is the most important pre-condition for a harmonious coexistence.

In 1990, Karin Hannak discovers the special meaning of human hair as artistic material - The first so-called capillographics show "Faces of Life". - After creating the "Human Mirror" installation "CapilloCollection International", human suffering as well as the concern for the future of our world become central topics for which the artist always finds new possibilities of expression. She works projects in white, poster walls, light installations, sculpture and photo projects. 2005: Her computer animation "Every 5 Seconds" points at the world-wide mass mortality of children. - The vision "CapilloGlobe" describes the basic situation of our world, the immense endangerment of our vulnerable planet. 2006: "European Landscape" refers to the high responsibility for the future of our children lying in our decisions. 2007: Macro-photographs of upper arms of people of all races peacefully unite people in the sense of being consummately human through "skin and hair".
