Public Art in the City
17.10.2018, godz. 19.00

Martina Taig – a specialist in the field of art in public space. She studied Economics and Art Management in Augsburg and Ludwigsburg. Since 2012 she has been running KÖR (Kunst im öffentlichen Raum GmbH Wien), an art institution in Vienna's public space. Strolling through Vienna, he is constantly on the lookout for places where new objects can be found. KÖR believes that art is a tool that opens up new perspectives and creates opportunities for urban experiences and activities. For KÖR, art in public places is not a decoration, but a proposal to explore certain content and an independent form of contemporary engagement in current socio-political issues in the urban area, which helps to build its identity.

Nan Mellinger - animator of artistic and cultural events. As an assistant to curator Joanna Warsza, she headed the Game Changers project carried out as part of Public Art Munich 2018 (PAM 2018). As part of Game Changers, the actions held in the public space were performative interventions, which were to redefine this phenomenon and ask about its condition in relation to the present day and to Munich's profile as a city.
