Stadtkuratorin Hamburg is a pilot project initiated by the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. Funding is provided by the cultural ministry of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, coming specifically from the program for art in the public sphere. The project is organized by Curating the City e.V. The pilot project is limited to two years and Sophie Goltz headed the first edition from 2014 to 2016. Dirck Möllmann is the artistic director of the second edition from 2018 to 2020. His program HAMBURG MASCHINE consists of works by international and local artists, who are invited to develop thematic works in the public sphere throughout the city. Wherever possible, new works will be commissioned. In most cases, these public contributions are only temporary.
