The Skulptur Projekte Münster, which began in 1977 and occurs every ten years, invites international artists to reflect on the relationship between art, public space and the urban environment. This year, close to thirty new, site-specific artistic productions are installed across the city of Münster, from June 10th until October 1st.

Artistic Director Kasper König and Curator Britta Peters have selected artists whose work engages with contemporary concepts of sculpture and publicness, to represent this decade’s exhibition with a focus on interaction and participation. They aim to prompt the question, to what extent public art can activate a city or community, through engagement, provocation or even disruption?
