The exhibition focuses on art in public space, as well as on Neu-Ulm as a city where a variety of experiences take place. “Outdoor Spaces – Inside Views” thus brings the outside inside the museum. The contemporary artists involved are no strangers to Neu-Ulm. Almost all of them have already been guests in Neu-Ulm and led visitors through the city, taking different perspectives as part of the “artistic tours”.
The works by Max Erbacher, Oliver Gather, Gigo Propaganda, Christian Hasucha, Uschi Huber and Dagmar Schmidt selected for the exhibition are created for indoor spaces and address events in the urban environment. They question the perception of public space, outline possibilities for sculptures and actions, document and reflect events set in motion and situations. In the exhibition rooms of the Edwin Scharff Museum, a dialogue emerges on questions of inside and outside, between the protected free space of art venues and the demands of public space, which also raises awareness to a new view of Neu-Ulm.
