Skulptur Projekte Munster
In summer 2017, Münster will, for the fifth time, be the venue for the “Skulptur Projekte” event. Since 1977, this renowned, large-scale exhibition with its unique concept has been staged at regular ten-year intervals.
The team of curators, comprising Kasper König, Britta Peters and Marianne Wagner, is inviting international artists to explore the relationship between art, public space and the urban environment and develop new works for specific locations. Selected projects are realized throughout the city, activating historical, architectural, social, political or aesthetic contexts in the process.
At the same time, however, the projects point far beyond the concrete location: the current edition encompasses issues of the global present and reflections on contemporary concepts of sculpture, as well as questions about the relationship between public and private space in an age of increasing digitalization.
Some thirty new artistic positions, ranging from classical sculpture to performative art, are coming to town from 10 June to 1 October 2017. This international art event draws visitors from all over the world - and admission is free.
The “Skulptur Projekte” is being organized by the LWL-Museum für Kunst und Kultur, under the aegis of the Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe (LWL) and the City of Münster.
