About The Event
Sculpture’s relationship with public space: the architectural and urban context and the people who frequent it, is always in flux and often challenging. Through his temporary, time-based and site-specific works Wolfgang Weileder seeks to uncover our understanding of the urban environment and the interactions we have with it.
In this 40-minute talk followed by Q&A with the artist, Wolfgang will present a selection of his international projects.
