Sternberg Press is pleased to announce *Sculpture Unlimited*, edited by Eva
Grubinger and Jörg Heiser. Based on a symposium at the Department of
Sculpture – Transmedial Space*,* Kunstuniversität 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 E. 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?

This book was made possible through the generous support of BAWAG P.S.K.,
Kulturland Oberösterreich, and Kunstuniversität Linz.
