To call the “Brick” project that Klaus Littmann has realized together with 11 sculptors, 11 Basel building firms and 11 or more sponsors an “intervention” would be to describe it badly – or at least insufficiently. To do so would be to gloss over precisely those characteristics – its lack of one-up-manship, its non-invasive style – which enables it to rehabilitate the truly tattered model of “art in the public arena” in such a surprising way.
