symposion [kunstwerk] krastal 2020

bildhauerhaus and lauster stone quarry - krastal

01. 07. - 31. 08. 2020


concept and coordination:
Attila Rath Geber, Peter H. Schurz

The 20th century modernist and postmodernist movements changed profoundly considerations relating to art and these changes are continuing towards to our contemporary time. Changes effected not only the forms of expression, which influences our perception, but attempted (and continuously attempts) to expand the boundaries of the definition of art it self, its position, role and functions within a social-cultural context. As part of these attempts, art moved out from the exhibition room and conquered new places. At the same time, the sculpture - even if with renewed form and with actualized vocabulary mostly remained in the same position and function in the public space.

In the German language the word public (~ öffentlich) is derived form the word open (~ offen). The symposion “open space”, intends to investigate the rapport of the open and the public, the use of public space, and the forms, the place and the function of artistic and non-artistic expression in it.
