Public art is a constant and important element of Sindelfingen’s cultural life. Always accessible to the public, it makes a special contribution to the way in which Sindelfingen’s citizens identify with the town. At the same time, it calls in a creative way for reflection and contemplation on behalf of passersby.

The Galerie Stadt Sindelfingen oversees the care of over 100 sculptures and installations on display in public spaces. Since the 1950s, they have been developed alongside construction projects or as site-specific works within the context of their location – providing, within Sindelfingen, a picture of 20th- and 21st-century German sculpture.

The spectrum ranges from the figuration of Waldemar Grzimek (1918–1984) to the abstraction and conceptualism of works by Christoph Freimann (*1940), Harald Klingelhöller (*1954), Ulrich Rückriem (*1938), Klaus Simon (*1949) and Lawrence Weiner (*1942), all of which in their own ways reflect the possibilities for artistic engagement in Sindelfingen’s public space.
