Kunst im öffentlichen Raum in Stuttgart

The Artworks in the public space are always at risk of disappearing due to construction work, weather and vandalism. The self-initiated project Kunst im öffentlichen Raum in Stuttgart (Art in Public Space in Stuttgart) counteracts this danger and enables a diverse access to the works. It includes the archiving of 430 works by 232 artists and presenting them in various media.

Starting in the center, the systematic traversal of Stuttgart’s 23 districts connects the urban space into a coherent overall picture.

The exact locations of the artworks were recorded and spatially sorted. This creates a pathfrom one work to the nextthrough which the urban space can be accessed.

Technological developments have made it a lot easier to build an archive with the precise recording of location.

Some artworks were not accessible, blocked or no longer there.

Special colorway of the hoodie.

Promotional assets for the book release.
