Fabrice Hybert created his Flashing Light for Cultural People in the run-up to Skulptur. Projekte in Münster 1997, as part of his ongoing series Prototypes d’Objets en Fonctionnement (POF).

The artist designed three prototypes of red flashing lights with a green surround, intended to visually identify art professionals: a ring, a bracelet, and a beacon for mounting on a vehicle roof. While these prototypes were shown in the old building of the museum a version of the flashing light that could be fastened to clothing was produced in an edition of 100 and worn during the exhibition by art educators, exhibition guides and staff. “Since the Flashing Lights for Cultural People recall detachable rear bicycle lights, they function as a cultural symbol. They seek to illustrate the integration of the museum structure, including its workforce, into the community.”1

In addition to this contribution, during Skulptur. Projekte in Münster 1997 Hybert made a film about the city of Münster, which was shown at the contemporaneous 47th Venice Biennale.
