A famed installation by Bruce Nauman will be taken away from its longtime home on the campus of the University of Münster in Germany [but relocated eventually]. Square Depression, a walk-in sculpture Nauman conceived for the school in 1977, was torn down in early November by the university to make space for a new university building.

Nauman conceived Square Depression in 1977, after being invited along with nine other artists by curator Kasper König to design site-specific public art for the decennial exhibition Skulptur Projekte Münster. At the conclusion of the exhibition, the residents of Münster are given the option to acquire any pieces through a pool of private and public donations
