The internationally renowned German artist Jochen Gerz (* 1940 in Berlin) has, with his works in public space, radically altered the relationship between art and viewer. His work transcends social boundaries, and creates new constituencies since it relies on public authorship. The individual is no longer just part of the public but is rather made part of the art. Gerz’ work anticipates the aesthetics of a democracy in search of its cultural dimension.
