Perché il pupazzo di neve è la scultura ideale per lo spazio urbano?

Kasper König (b. 1943, Mettingen, Germany) Professor Dr. König was only twenty-three years old when he curated a Claes Oldenburg exhibition for the Moderna Museet in Stockholm. In 1985, König became Professor of Art and the Public at the Academy of Fine Arts in Düsseldorf. Three years later, he accepted a professorship at the Städelschule Frankfurt, where he served as president from 1989 until 2000. During this same period he was Founding Director of Portikus, an exhibition hall in Frankfurt.

König has organized several large exhibitions, including Westkunst in the Messehallen, Cologne (1981); von hier aus in the Messe, Düsseldorf (1984); and Der zerbrochene Spiegel in Vienna and Hamburg with Hans Ulrich Obrist (1993). Together with Klaus Bussmann, he co-initiated and organized the Skulptur Projekte Münster in 1977 and the following editions (1987, 1997, 2007, 2017). From 2000 to 2012 he served as Director of the Museum Ludwig in Cologne. Kasper König was also Chief Curator of Manifesta 10, which took place in St. Petersburg in 2014 and recently served as Artistic Director of Skulptur Projekte Münster in 2017.
