Based on a symposium at the Department of Sculpture–Transmedial Space, University of Art and Design, Linz, Austria, Sculpture Unlimited captures the breadth of the contemporary discussion around sculpture. Against the historical backdrop of expansions of the notion of sculpture—from Auguste Rodin to Rosalind Krauss and beyond—one could think that the discipline has become defined by its near arbitrary malleability, since practically anything can be construed as sculpture. Yet interest in the history of sculpture seems to be experiencing a revival, including traditional techniques and production methods, which often appear appealing, even radical, in the age of the Internet and social media. The book probes into recent developments in the field, and asks, what potentials does that history hold for responding to current environments? How can the contemporary field of sculpture be defined in a useful and stimulating manner?
