Opened May 31, 2018
Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn, Germany
Carsten Höller has developed a site-specific slide connecting the roof of the Bundeskunsthalle to the museum’s grounds. Bonner slide (2018) aims to create a symbiotic relationship with the museum’s architecture. The slide has been inaugurated as part of the exhibition The Playground Project—Outdoor, but will remain in place for several years to be enjoyed during the outdoor season.

Aventura Slide Tower
Aventura Mall, Florida
Commissioned as part of the Aventura Mall’s expansion, Carsten Höller’s new, site-specific Aventura Slide Tower is now open. Guests visiting will be awed by the towering 93-foot slides, which can be enjoyed from a distance, or while actually sliding down the sculpture—an experience producing what Höller likens to “an emotional state . . . somewhere between delight and madness.”
