FAKE – Margarete Schrüfer and Ottmar Hörl, until 30 July 2016, at KunstKontor Nürnberg, Nuremberg

"FAKE", a double feature where Ottmar Hörl is partnering with Margarete Schrüfer, is Hörl's first presentation of his new series of works subversively entitled "Schnee von gestern" [literally: Yesterday's Snow, figuratively meaning "water under the bridge"]. It is his way of gauging what painting can do in the 21st century, and making an offer to enter into a discourse about that. > more


Lasst Blumen sprechen - Blumen und künstliche Natur [Say it with Flowers! – Flowers and Artificial Nature since 1960], until 23 October 2016, Schloss Moyland

Museum Schloss Moyland is staging a flower show of a very special nature. An exhibition showcasing works by artists from Germany and abroad looks into the way flowers have been presented, and dealt with, in art since 1960. The exhibition brings together works of painting and sculpture, drawings and prints as well as installations and selected positions from contemporary photography. Seventy-five works by thirty-nine artists are on display in the exhibition hall, parts of the castle building and the museum’s park. Ottmar Hörl, for instance, has set up an installation with roses welcoming visitors in the Kutschenrondell roundabout at the castle's entrance. > more


Luther for the World Heritage Day held in Coburg between 3 and 7 June

Setting up his "Martin Luther: Here I stand …" sculptural installation in Wittenberg's historic market square in the summer of 2010, Ottmar Hörl opened the Luther Decade. Unlike any other work of art so far, eight hundred Luther multiples have stimulated and animated a discussion on art, aesthetics and freedom. Since then, Hörl's Luther sculptures have conquered the whole world starting from Wittenberg, inviting people to engage in a cultural discourse. > more
