The arts and the public domain in focus – The series of lectures on the arts which play a part in the public domain wanted to present the medial, spatial, cultural and social compexity of that which is understood under the term »Art in Public Spaces«. Previously, so-called »Art in Public Spaces« has become artistic intervention and performance which dissolve as space, language and object. It has opened up new possibilities of effect and realisation for public spaces and comprises interventions and design of location, places and spaces, theatrical stagings, language spaces, choreographiy with urban and rural communities, social and ecological projects as well as sensual anthropology. In 2010, the Muthesius Academy and the Kiel City Gallery together started a discussion with the series which is linked to current experiences mostly in Europe and demonstrates new paths which concern all those interested in bringing the significance of public spaces up-to-date.Blow up – A sereis on the potential contribution of art to public spaces 2010 – 2014.
