Positions on sculpture of the twenty-first century

Sculpture 21st seeks to determine positions on sculpture of the twenty-first century based on selected examples. On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum, several of the most important contemporary sculptors exhibited their works in alternating presentations. Key works or groups of works by Tino Sehgal, Antony Gormley, Monika Sosnowska, Erwin Wurm, and Eija-Liisa Ahtila took up a place in the transparent glass hall of the museum. All of them, albeit in very different ways, put fundamental questions to the museum and to art, their striking presence reinvigorating the space of the extraordinary museum architecture. The glass hall, which, like a display case, opens up into the public space of the park, becomes a field of experience that physically embraces the viewer’s perception.
