skulptur projekte münster 07 [sculpture projects muenster 07]

 

After 30 years of continual thematic focus on contemporary art in public space, the curators and artists of the 2007 edition revisited the question of the topical relevance of the Skulptur Projekte format. The fourth exhibition in a row was in many respects also a review. In comparison with the now global presence of art biennials and triennials, or even the documenta in Kassel, Münster’s extended ten-year rhythm assumes particular importance, causing Brigitte Franzen to coin the term “long-term study”. In 2007, altogether 36 artists contributed projects to the exhibition, which received broad international attention. Many of the artists were participants from earlier editions of Skulptur Projekte. Film, video and performance works were given greater prominence in the exhibition than in previous decades.
