Special edition "Theodor Fontane II"

In 2019, the 200th anniversary of Theodor Fontane's birth is celebrated. To mark the bicentenary, Ottmar Hörl developed Theodor Fontane II for Neuruppin, Fontane's place of birth. The sculpture of the town's famous son measures 42 cm in height.

Back in 2016, Ottmar Hörl devised an installation featuring 400 serial Fontane sculptures for the poet's native town. This former project, presented in front of the Neuruppin parish church, included sculptures of approx. 93 cm in height in yellow and in black. The new, slightly smaller variant of the Fontane sculpture is available in gold and in anthracite grey.

"The colour gold symbolises appreciation of Fontane. Cultural achievements make an essential contribution to the identity, self-image, and further development of a society and are therefore 'worth their weight in gold' as the saying goes," points out Andreas Vockrodt, manager of events and cultural activities of the municipality of Neuruppin.

T
he sculptures were first presented at the New Year's reception of Fontanestadt Neuruppin in January. Up to 30 March, they will exclusively be available at a discounted subscription price at Kulturhaus Neuruppin. From 31 March, the sculptures may also be ordered from the Ottmar Hörl Online Shop.
