My aim is to make a reference-catalog about the difficulty, the complexity, and the beauty of a work of Art in Public Space. A book that shows the artist's (my) ambition to make a new kind of Monument. A book that shows my insistence on the power of Art to provoke encounters, my belief in the resistance of Art and its power to not be neutralized by culture and consumption. The catalog will document the competence and ability Art can have in Public Space: To create a Form for Implication, for Justice, for Conflict, for Knowledge, for Universality, for Autonomy, for the Other, for Co-Existence, for Transgression, and for Love.
Thomas Hirschhorn was born in Bern, Switzerland, in 1957. He lives and works in Paris.
