Together with Brigitte Franzen, curator for contemporary art at the LWLLandesmuseum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte, and Carina Plath, the director of the Westfälischer Kunstverein, the veteran curator Kasper König is heading this year’s exhibition, skulptur projekte münster 07. This outstanding team has referred to Skulptur Projekte as a “long-term study” of how the artistic exploration of the public sphere – and how the public sphere itself – have changed over time.
The curators invited thirty-six artists to realise thirty-four projects throughout the city. For the first time, the exhibition focused more strongly on film and video, performative arts played a key role, and the internet served as an expanded public platform, transporting artistic ideas beyond the urban context.
