Office for art in public space

Sculptures, installations or memorials do not only shape a cityscape but provoke and maintain a public cultural discourse. The Office for art in public spaces provides professional art commissions in connection with urban planning projects; guaranteeing fairness through democratic and transparent selection procedures. The office keeps an artist’s archive – a pool of portfolios submitted to the office. Suggestions for commissions are made by the expert committee for art in public spaces.
