Held once ev­ery ten years, Skulp­tur Pro­jekte re­turns with a stronger fo­cus on per­for­ma­tive art

Ini­ti­ated by Kaus Buss­mann and Kasper Konig in 1997, Skulp­tor Pro­jekte is unique not only in art medium and lo­cale, but also cy­cle. Held only ev­ery other ten years, the 2017 edi­tion will com­bine sculp­tures, per­for­ma­tive arts and a short lit­er­ary res­i­dency pro­gramme to ques­tion the re­la­tion­ship be­tween man and the ur­ban en­vi­ron­ment, with fo­cus on the im­pact that glob­al­i­sa­tion and dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion has had on this re­la­tion­ship. Thirty new artis­tic pre­sen­ta­tions will be in­stalled at the LWLMu­seum fur Kunst and Kul­tur, and around the cities of Mün­ster and nearby Marl. While Ayşe Erk­men at­tempts to con­nect the two sides of the town har­bour by build­ing a foot­bridge just be­low the wa­ter’s sur­face, Alexan­dra Pirci, in­spired from the 1648 Peace of West­phalia, turns per­form­ers into ‘liv­ing seach en­gines’ to ques­tion the dis­en­gage­ment of the phys­i­cal body from a dig­i­tal world. In­spired by Mün­ster’s post-war re­con­struc­tion of build­ing fa­cades, The Pe­les Em­pire will con­struct a walk-in sculp­ture across the road from Aegidi­imarkt.
