Local and global

We celebrate three-dimensional contemporary art locally and internationally. This is our chance to be active on a local level and to connect to others around the world at the same time. This multicultural exchange widens horizons and let us plunge deeper into the global art world.

Three-dimensional art and society

Society shapes art and art shapes society. Both are inextricably linked. How do we view three-dimensional art? How does it change and influence our world view? The art form of sculpture in particular offers the opportunity to take on other perspectives and to question norms.


How can we start the new year better than with start'19? - Together we will toast contemporary sculpture and the New Year. We are curious to see what 2019 will bring in terms of three-dimensional art.
