All art has been contemporary

At the invitation of the City of Munich, the Scandinavian artists Elmgreen & Dragset have curated an ongoing exhibition called A Space Called Public / Hoffentlich Öffentlich, which began in January and presents a series of art projects in Munich’s public spaces until the end of September. Here are some of the works that have crossed my path while walking around the city:

Pay nothing until April by Ed Ruscha at Lenbachplatz

Bubblesplatz by David Shrigley at Promenadeplatz

Made in Dresden by Han Chong at Viktualienmarkt

Metro-net by Martin Kippenberger at Marienhof

Schöner Wohnen by Alexander Laner at Wittelsbacher Platz

Munich is thriving with art and new museums. Impossible to miss was the long awaited reopening of the Lenbachhaus, home to works from Der Blaue Reiter (Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, August Macke) and the New Objectivity movement. Also the State Museum of Egyptian Art located in a new site at Munich's art district certainly deserves a visit during the occasional rainy summer day.
