The publication looks at contemporary artistic practices that turn spaces into places. Space and place are explored as topics and mediums of playful investigation and serious reflection. Together with artists, designers, architects, curators, historians, theoreticians and philosophers, it questions the experience, imagination and design of spaces and places in theory and practice. The colourful collection of projects, performances, interviews and essays explores these notions within contemporary art and culture in all its complex and diverging, contemporary exposures. The book is published on the occasion of the exhibition cycle Space is the Place curated by Lukas Feireiss at BNKR—current reflections on art and architecture, Munich between September 2018 and July 2019.
Contributors: Franz Xaver Baier, Julius von Bismarck, Nuotama Bodomo, Beatriz Colomina, Olafur Eliasson, Andrea Fraser, Jeewi Lee, Bruce Nauman, Tom Sachs, Michael Sailstorfer and many more
