Münster Notebook: An Annotated Tour of Skulptur Projekte 2017

Ayşe Erkmen, On Water, 2017, at Stadthafen 1.

An absolute pleasure. Erkmen has straddled two shores of Münster’s inner harbor with a metal bridge that is located just under the water. Ordinary people can accomplish the divine: you can pop off your shoes (or not) and venture across. After a long day of walking and biking in the sun, this piece offered a very refreshing respite, and is an elegantly simple city-planning solution. What divides could be crossed with a bit of bridge building in your own town? What other delights could be added to a community with a bit of ingenious thinking?
