Michael Asher

* 1943 in Los Angeles, California, USA

† 2012 in Los Angeles

Michael Asher’s invitation to participate in the project section of the exhibition Skulptur Ausstellung in Münster 1977 came from Kasper König himself, who had met the artist in Los Angeles in 1970. Asher’s proposals for Münster envisaged mobile, discreet changes at given sites, such as planting trees or excavating a tunnel. Ultimately, the artist decided to install an Eriba Familia caravan, which he parked at locations that changed on weekly basis, in and around Münster. Colourful tear-off pads in the museum foyer, together with the catalogue entry, directed visitors to the respective parking locations. In some cases, detailed sketches and descriptions regarding the various project proposals exist. The current documentation in the Skulptur Projekte Archiv provides no information however on the criteria Asher used in selecting the individual sites.
