The iconic »One Minute Sculptures« by Erwin Wurm

The iconic One Minute Sculptures by Erwin Wurm (*1954 in Bruck an der Mur) invite visitors to realize temporary sculptures by following the artist’s instructions and using objects at hand. Levitating, holding your breath and thinking of Spinoza, throwing yourself away, or being a terrorist—for one minute. For a brief moment, yet long enough to elevate the banality, the ridiculousness, and the interchangeability of this meeting between individual and object to a philosophical level, while raising questions of divergence among our realities. These constellations are social sculptures whose astonishing simplicity and stringency make them both alluring and unsettling.

This is the first publication to list all of the One Minute Sculptures that Erwin Wurm has realized around the world over a period of more than twenty years. It’s also the only one to feature his continuing work, created for the Austrian Pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennial.

Exhibition: Biennale di Venezia, Austrian pavilion 13.5.–26.11.2017
