KölnSkulptur is a biennial series of exhibitions at Skulpturenpark Köln (Cologne Sculpture Park).

About

It was initiated by the park's founders, Dr. Michael and Dr. Eleonore Stoffel. KölnSkulptur #8 is the eighth new show and can be viewed from June 2015 onwards.

Encircled by busy thoroughfares, Skulpturenpark Köln occupies an area that is quiet enclave and urban periphery, park and no-man's-land simultaneously. It is this space-defining tension which Thomas D. Trummer was drawing on when he chose the artists for the current exhibition.

Seven new artworks are on display, five of which are commissions. They all deal with the ideas of framing or the opposite, exclusion. The unshakeable, defiant presence of these monuments is supposed to inspire thought about contemporary political developments in Germany and Europe. They act as view obstacles and thematically stand for opposition, work and migration, for movement and rejection.

With seven new works by:

Tom Burr, Edith Dekyndt, Matt Mullican, Santiago Sierra, Slavs and Tatars, Amalia Ulman and Lois Weinberger
