"Das Offene Buch" of the town of Hünfeld
The gateway into the urban museum
Since 1996, Hünfeld has been developing into an open-air museum of the other kind. The “Concrete Poetry”, a stream of literature called into life by Eugen Gomringer, adorns numerous facades in the town. The idea for that came from artist Jürgen Blum, a motor of Concrete Art. In cooperation with the Museum of Modern Art headed up by Blum, he began to realise the “Open Book” in Hünfeld together with Karl Möller and Elmar Wald.
