Michael Asher

* 1943 in Los Angeles, California, USA

† 2012 in Los Angeles

Following Klaus Bußmann’s return to the Landesmuseum as director in 1985, he and Kasper König decided to organize a second edition of Skulptur Projekte for 1987. This time too, Michael Asher received an invitation, and this time too, he also presented several proposals during the run-up to the exhibition. Simultaneously to new ideas, the possibility of a re-installation of the caravan work nonetheless still fascinated him. A prerequisite for this was that a model of caravan, identical to the 1977 one, could still be rented. In the manner of a scientific experiment, Michael Asher decided to repeat the project under transformed conditions. The ten-year-long gap would demonstrate changes to Münster’s urban landscape and the use of the same sites would facilitate the tracing of them: if Asher found that a site had changed too extensively in comparison to 1977, he would then station the caravan in a garage for that week.
