Kasper Konig

 

Arguably one of the most important art shows in the world, the Skulptur Projekte Münster, the Muenster Sculpture Project, takes place every ten years and showcases sculpture by many of the top artists of each decade.  “A slowed-down, 10-year interval is the best way to examine changes which took place in sculptural approaches, also related to society,” argues co-founder Kasper König, who has served as the artistic director of the project since its inception in 1977. König will join Hirshhorn Curator-at-Large Gianni Jetzer in conversation to discuss the most recent iteration of the project that scattered sculptures and installations across the German city for over 100 days in 2017.

Jetzer, whose exhibitions What Absence is Made Of and Brand New: Art and Commodity of the 1980s highlight the Museum’s 2018 Spring calendar, has annually served as the curator for Unlimited, Art Basel’s pioneering exhibition platform for projects that transcend the classical art-show stand, including massive sculpture and paintings, video projections, large-scale installations, and live performances.

The Curators in Conversation series is made possible through generous support from Andrew Stern and Joanne Gold.
