Fascinating works of art are to be presented by the ZKM in Karlsruhe city center: impressive large-scale sculptures, performances and interventions by international artists. »The City is the Star« seeks to extend the aesthetics of the everyday and so-called poor materials – one of the innovations of modern art – to the construction sites and to thereby change their perception.
