The exhibition 24h Skulptur at Galerie Sexauer, Berlin paired 'time sculptures' by young artists like Alicja Kwade, Humberto Diaz, and Awst & Walther with benchmarks of the genre by Dennis Oppenheim, Roman Signer, and Franz Erhard Walther. The exhibition lasted no more than one night and one day, and most of the sculptures presented constantly changing appearances; other pieces were performed live as sculptural actions. 24h Skulptur: Notes on Time Sculptures features colour photographs of all exhibits as well as statements by the artists on the significance of time for their work. A conversation between curators Ursula Strobele and Andreas Greiner explores the meanings of the idea of the sculpture today, and an essay by Julia Wallner examines the challenges museums face in handling ephemeral artifacts. The book complements the illustrations with two virtual sculptures by Sebastian Acker and Niko Princen, and combines a critical study of the expanded conception of sculpture with documentation of a singular exhibition. An intervention by Norgard Kroger makes every copy a unique work of art.
