Temporary Art in Public Space:
Moment 2002

”Going public” is the slogan of the international art series Moment. On an annual basis, Deutsche Bank sponsors selected artistic projects that take place in changing locations around the globe.


Rather than large-scale sculpture in urban space or art in architecture, this series is concerned with the creation of events that cannot be repeated and that reflect ideas and situations in unique ways - in short: temporary art in public space. In view of the increasingly virtual nature of banking business, Moment delineates new perspectives: contemporary art encountering a present marked by global networking and new avenues of communication.

Following the beginning of the series with Ayse Erkmen's project Shipped Ships in Frankfurt am Main, the German artist Karin Sander continues the series this year in New York with her project wordsearch. Over the next two years, artistic events by Tobias Rehberger and Jenny Holzer will be realized in Venice and Singapore. In connection with this, you can read excerpts from a podium discussion between artists and curators which took place within Moment's framework at the Art Cologne 2001, or visit our Moment-Homepage.
