Out of Time
We are happy to announce the release of Out of Time, the second in a series of three publications which accompanies the preparations of Skulptur Projekte Münster 2017. Each publication will take up a term that has proven to have a meaningful relation to sculpture: the body, time and place. Out of Body was published in spring 2016 and Out of Place will appear in spring 2017. Out of Body surveyed perceived shifts regarding the integrity of the body, especially in light of digitalization, globalization and the new economic principles that accompany them. Out of Time contains perspectives on the archive, late-capitalist time, post-communist monuments and several works from past editions of Skulptur Projekte. Skulptur Projekte Münster has taken place every ten years since 1977. Simply through dealing with sculpture and public space, each edition has been inscribed with aspects of its own era. At the same time, preceding editions have shaped the context for each following one—numerous works have remained in the city; others' legacy has continued to exert an influence.

Skulptur Projekte Münster 2017
In the summer of 2017, Münster will be the venue of the Skulptur Projekte for the fifth time. The renowned major exhibition with its globally unique concept has been taking place at regular ten-year intervals since 1977. The curatorial team, presently made up of Kasper König, Britta Peters and Marianne Wagner, invites international artists to investigate the relationship between art, the public realm, and the urban environment and develop new, site-specific works. Selected projects are realized in the urban space and activate its historical, architectural, social, political and aesthetic contexts. At the same time, the projects point beyond the specific place: in the current edition of the show, themes related to the global present and reflections on the concept of sculpture are as much an integral part of the artistic explorations as deliberations on the relationship between public and private space in times of increasing digitalization. From June 10 to October 1, 2017, approximately 30 new artistic concepts covering a spectrum from sculpture to performance art will inscribe themselves into the urban space of Münster. The international exhibition draws visitors from all over the world. Admission is free.

Skulptur Projekte is a cooperative project of The Regional Association of Westphalia-Lippe (LWL) and the city of Münster. The exhibition is being organized by the LWL-Museum of Arts and Culture.
