Cosima von Bonin + Tom Burr, Benz Bonin Burr
Cosima von Bonin works with exagerations. Her sculptures are distinguished by grotesque distorsions of scale, often in combination with an unusual choice of materials, for example fabric or plush. Collaboration with other artists is also a recurring aspect of her working method. She created her project for the courtyeard front of the museum with Tom Burr, whose works will be on view in a solo exhibition of the Westfälischer Kunstverein concurrently with The Skulptur Projekte.
Michael Dean, Tender Tender
In many of his works, Dean develops a kind of sculptural writing in space. For the Skulptur Projekte 2017, Dean veiled the atrium with sheets of tranparent foil ; only peepholes allow a view on his sculptures. A routing through the colonnade reconstructs the historic entrance of the old building. On the street in front of the museum, the artist uses stickers and further sculptures to address the relationship between interior and exterior.

Thomas Schütte, Nuclear Temple

In the old zoological gardens, he has placed an oxidized steel sculpture weighing several tonnes near two historical building fragments, the howl house and the weir, in th middle of a sandy area surrounded by a low wall.
Oscar Tuazon, Burn the Formwork
Tuazon’s sculptural constructions of wood, concrete or steel border an architecture. They emerge from his process of exploring the conditions of the exhibition context and the nature of temporary outdoor structures. On an abandoned industrial site on the canal he has set up a cylindrical concrete object that serves as a public freeplace, barbecue grill, outdoor heater and lookout tower.
