Sennestadt was an ambitious urban planning project of the 1950s and attracted worldwide attention. The plan by the architect, Prof. Bernhard Reichow, was based on ideas of an »organic art of urban planning«. According to Sennestadt’s urban development the exhibition project »Vor Ort« questions the current correlation between art, the city and the public sphere, using Sennestadt as a model. The freshly printed catalogue features the works by David Adamo, Awst & Walther, Michael Beutler, Andreas Bunte, Christian Falsnaes, Manfred Pernice, Arne Schmitt and Katerina Seda and their site-specific sculptures, installations and artistic interventions, through which they thematically explore the character of the city and its inhabitants.
