Dear members and friends of three-dimensional art,
An exciting summer is now behind us, filled with many exhibitions and other artistic events. Not only that, also the programme of sculpture network’s events and its members’ initiatives has been impressive.
Let me first mention the dOCUMENTA 13, which we attended along with 50 members and guests over two and a half days. The diversity and abundance of the events offered is reflected in the variety of impressions and opinions of the visitors, as well as the reporting and commentary in the media.
I have nothing to add here but would like to recommend that you read the article by Anne Berk in this newsletter. Read more

dOCUMENTA13: The revelations of things by Anne Berk
dOCUMENTA13 in Kassel looks like a modern Wunderkammer, with a great variety of objects: contemporary and ancient, art objects as well as natural elements. In this virtual, digital world, curator Carolyn Christoph Bakargiev invites us to surrender to our senses, to reconnect with nature and the other creatures with which we share the planet. Bakargiev acknowledges the merits of the physical (art) object as tool for reflection and embodiment. That’s good news for sculptors! Read full article
