After conducting round table discussions, seminars, and workshops, an open call for art in public space is planned for local artists in some of the locations in Eastern Europe and Central Asia next year. The project proposals that are submitted will be subsequently presented to the public and awarded prizes by an international jury. The award recipients from the open competition will be given the opportunity to enter into an exchange with other artists and initiators of art in public space during a tour through Germany.

In addition to initiating spaces for possibilities, an important goal is to transform many of the nominated project proposals into spaces of sensory experience in conjunction with local decision makers. Which artistic projects can be successfully realised will not least of all depend upon the local approval process. Thus, we come full circle back to the tense, exciting and – according to the diagnosis made at the outset – paradoxical field in which public art and art in public space operates.

Coordinator: Goethe-Institut Nowosibirsk
Artistic director in the preliminary phase: Dr. Petra Reichensperger
