PLAYING THE CITY II



After the project’s success in the previous year, “Playing the City II” presents another fabulous range of artistic activities in public space, involving the city and its inhabitants in very different ways. Over a period of 18 days, the Frankfurt city center will be the site of regular new actions and activities. The specially conceived works will be created by 20 international artists in collaboration with the general public. Collaborative and participatory works are expected from national and international artists such as Nina Beier, Clarina Bezzola, Julien Bismuth, Clegg & Guttmann, Cosalux, For Use / Numen, Swetlana Gerner, Josef Loretan, Jan Lotter, Annika Lundgren, Lee Mingwei, Ivan Moudov, Anny und Sibel Öztürk, Paola Pivi, Plural Art Collective, Reactor, Leonid Tishkov, Gavin Turk, and Vanja Vukovic. At the heart of the project lies the artistic engagement with public space and with concepts such as the social turn and community-based art. In parallel, an office will be set up in the SCHIRN’s exhibition space, providing information on the artists and video documentation of all the actions.

Curator: Matthias Ulrich (SCHIRN)
