12. July – 11. Oktober 2022
An Alltagsmenschen exhibition by the artists Christel & Laura Lechner

In 2022, the Alltagsmenschen will visit the city of Meppen in Emsland for the first time. Meppen is not only known for its impressive landscape, some of the most beautiful cycling routes in Germany and two large nearby nature parks, but also for its picturesque city center. This year, more than 40 Alltagsmenschen at 10 locations will be integrated into the Meppen cityscape and invite you to walk around, touch and linger.

The Alltagsmenschen in Meppen

From July 12th to October 11th, 2022 they will be guests in Meppen for the first time: the Alltagsmenschen of the Witten artists Christel & Laura Lechner. More than 40 sculptures linger at 10 locations in the center of Meppen and are sensitively integrated into the cityscape at concise locations. ​


The sculptures reinterpret the space that surrounds them and thus enable the viewer to gain new access to the surroundings that may already be familiar.


Every Alltagsmensch, the environment and the viewer enter into a conscious dialogue and enable direct access to art.

The Alltagsmenschen are always a wonderful enrichment for Mosbach and they conjure up a smile on your face with their cheerful charisma.

2 weeks ago I visited your Alltagsmenschen in Mosbach and I am absolutely thrilled. Believe me, my camera did not stand still!!
