Münster becomes an open-air museum

Every ten years the "Sculpture Projects" exhibition takes place in Münster, where sculptures and installations change the face of the city. Henrike Thomson writes that once again, curator Kasper König has "put together an exquisite exhibition with works that are tentative, but at the same time precise and clever," including a luxuriously decorated public toilet by Hans-Peter Feldmann and an inverted pyramid by Bruce Nauman. "The spell that has taken over contemporary art in the tradition-steeped city of Münster is very delicate and almost invisible, more like a fine crack through which seeps the suppressed and the unwanted, but also new perspectives and poetry. The work most in keeping with this spirit is the string Mark Wallinger has tied around the old part of the city, high above the bustle of the streets and apparently passing right through houses. The question of setting boundaries, both for those without and those within, couldn't have been raised more nonchalantly."
