In 1977 he and Klaus Bussmann jointly initiated the Skulptur Projekte Mu?nster, which have been taking place every ten years since then with his involvement. He has moreover curated several large-scale exhibitions, for example Westkunst (1981), Der zerbrochene Spiegel (1993) and most recently, the Manifesta 10 in St. Petersburg. From 2000 to 2012, Kasper König directed the Museum Ludwig in Cologne. In January 2015 he was appointed artistic director of the Skulptur Projekte.
