When did you last read Brecht?
At school? What a pity that would be.
Ottmar Hörl wishes to whet your appetite for dealing with Brecht. His strategy to do so is visible in the park surrounding the Göggingen Kurhaus in Augsburg, in an installation on show from 30 June to 29 September 2019.
Through his work, Brecht has achieved what many dream of, but few turn into practice using talent and all their strength: He provoked. Challenged. Changed. Has become famous. He succeeded in picking people up, stimulating them to reflect, encouraging them to think further.
Per aspera ad astra: at the end of this endeavour, there emerged his grandiose oeuvre.
However, of what use would a work be if it were only accessible to one individual?
Only by being reproduced and multiplied does a work receive its platform as an acknowledged piece of work.
Ottmar Hörl is well-known for his concept of serial sculpture, which transports precisely this idea of reproduction. The large number of Brecht sculptures refers to Brecht's work, which could only become a socially recognised oeuvre by being disseminated and perceived.
