Art for the People (2)
Since prehistoric times until today, sculptures have been placed outside, to connect and enjoy people.
With this Online Club we welcome you to the second part of 'Art for the People' and we are looking forward to discovering further impressive sculpture projects.
Matthias Bildstein (AU) and Philippe Glatz (CH) operate as the collective Bildstein/Glatz.
The duo became known for their monumental ramps, roadways and deflection structures in the mountains, a playful comment on utilitarianism, and the entertainment and art industry.

Curating and moderation by curator Anne Berk.

About the Theme
Sculpture in the City is delivered by the City of London Corporation in partnership with local businesses. Since the project’s inception in 2010, the City of London has worked with Lacuna, a creative projects consultant, to develop the project and provide strategic advice.
Sculpture in the City and other large scale projects have succeeded in shining a welcome and positive spotlight on public spaces, attracting audiences from afar as well as engaging the local communities.
Bildstein | Glatz are know for their playful woodstructures, and ironical actions, starting with As Far as the Budget Allows (2009), a bridge that remained suspended in mid air, never reaching the other side. Their work is characterized by a childlike love of experimentation, artistic madness and philosophical questioning of the purpose of art and life.
