In recent years few topics in the visual arts have created such controversy as the debate surrounding the significance and the potential of public art. In this handbook - the first of its kind - over fifty authors take a critical look at this theme: the result is a fascinating compendium of opinions and statements, experiences and reports. The wide-ranging material by curators, art-historians and artists - including Vito Acconci, Daniel Buren, Laszlo Glozer, Dan Graham, Walter Grasskamp, Hans Haacke, Jenny Holzer, Rebecca Horn, Ilya Kabakov, Kasper König, Joseph Kosuth, Ulrich Rückriem, Richard Serra, Lawrence Weiner and many more - is divided into 'Art and the City', 'Art and Architecture', 'Art and History', 'Art and Society', 'Art and the Exhibition', 'Art and the Public'.JOSEPH KOSUTH (*1945) is one of the most renowned Conceptual artists in the United States. His slyly dialectical oeuvre is represented in exhibitions and collections around the world. Thanks to his initiative, works by artists such as John Baldessari, Wolfgang Berkowski, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Jessica Diamond, Georg Herold, Susan Hiller, Ilya Kabakov, Sherrie Levine, Haim Steinbach, Franz West, and Heimo Zobernig have found their way to the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna.
