Wolfgang Winter and Berthold Hörbelt have been working together since 1992. The structures built of bottle crates and the signet Winter/Hörbelt have become their trademarks. Crate houses, which combine aesthetic and useful functions, served as information pavilions during the exhibition Sculpture. Projects in Münster, 1997, and as resting and reading rooms at the Venice Biennale in 1999. Since then, box houses exist all over Europe, the US, Vietnam, and Japan, as well as one project in Brazil. This book examines the artists´ complex oeuvre, which must not simply be reduced to box houses. With their cast pieces, play devices, and walk-in light grid baskets, Winter/Hörbelt explore the significance and possibilities of sculpture today, and its change of meaning in various contexts, sites, or uses. An interview and essays by specialists reflect the genesis of an oeuvre which is illustrated by a carefully documented selection of works. Exhibition schedule: Westfälisches Landesmuseum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte Münster, December 14 - February 23, 2003
