The Skulptur Projekte have taken place in Münster every ten years since 1977. The exhibition invites artists from all over the world to develop site-specific works for the public space—sculptures, but also temporary installations and performances.

The 35 projects created for the 2017 exhibition inscribe themselves in the city’s structural, historical and social environment and point far beyond its boundaries. At the same time, they manifest reflections on the concept of sculpture, the relationship between public and private space in times of increasing digitalization and a range of issues posed by the globalized present.

The Skulptur Projekte are further enhanced by satellite projects—like The Hot Wire in cooperation with Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl—and partnerships with other cultural institutions in Münster.
