InhalteThe module introduces key art historical debates and theoretical terms regarding the practice of sculpture. Through specific case studies spanning from the early 20th century to the present, the course asks what distinguishes sculpture from other art forms – from painting and poetry, to installation and object. Through selected texts and films, group work and discussions, excursions in public space and to the Kunstgiesserei St. Gallen, we explore the multiple dimensions of sculpture as a spatial practice – which shapes and is in turn shaped by spheres of the social and psychic as well as organic and technological bodies.

Meret Kaufmann (*1989) studied art history and theatre studies at Freie Universität Berlin and University College London, where she is currently working on her doctorate. She works across research, teaching, writing and exhibition making in various institutions and projects.
