The football world championship will certainly be the biggest sport and media event of 2006. In the exhibition project hosted by the Nürnberg Kunstverein, two "teams" of eleven artists each will address the phenomenon of football. Whether sympathetic or ironic, critical or profound, both teams will pass each other the ball in various artistic forms of expression - through painting, sculpture, photography, installations and video.
