Wood - a material for old and new
Wood is a material that can be used in many different ways and from which a wide range of different works can be created. Here we introduce five artists who create great works of art with this often inconspicuous material. This natural, vegetative material often requires less energy than other materials, such as stone or metal, and can be used in a wide variety of ways.

International Forum 2020 postponed
Even though the restrictions in the course of the corona pandemic are being relaxed in many places, we do not yet know how things will develop.

The Touching Performance
Developed by the dancer Zrinka Šimičić Mihanović and the artist and sculpture network coordinator Marina Bauer a special happening took place last summer: The Touching Performance, which combined sculpture, dance, movement and touch into a common experience. The idea behind the performative installation is, that the viewer and the observed are both parts of a common experience, both participants and witnesses of the event, and both responsible for what is experienced and seen. We wanted to learn more about this special project and talked to the two initiators:
Do Not Touch!
The instruction "Do not touch!" was once most commonly found in museums and galleries. The fact that it has spread to our entire lives in the wake of the Corona crisis is a huge challenge for all of us. This calls for a reflection on the value of touch— for us as humans and in art.
The Female Gaze: Voyeurism Redefined
There are some shared aspects of the female experience that are collectively understood, if not always spoken. Voyeurism, or the male gaze, which has likely existed since the dawn of artistic development in humans, is one such phenomenon.
EUROPEAN SCULPTURE PATH - VISIONS FOR EUROPE

The idea and effectiveness of a united Europe is constantly being called into question.
