The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.

One Day Sculpture

In ONE DAY SCULPTURE, prominent critics, curators and scholars explore new considerations of public sculpture, temporality, performance, and curating art in the public realm. Conceived as both a document and critical expansion of the year-long One Day Sculpture temporary public art series in New Zealand (, the book opens with an anthology of newly commissioned texts which expand conventional notions of encounter, performativity, publicness, photography, materiality, space and place in relation to contemporary public art. Set within this critical context, are indepth considerations of each of the twenty One Day Sculpture projects, forming a new dimension to recent discussions on situation-specific art practices and commissioning public art for the public realm.
