From 19 September 2020, a spontaneous, brief appearance of cheerful, colourful sculptures will be seen in Wertheim/Main, the city where "Flashmob", Ottmar Hörl's new, participatory art project is about to start.
Specifically for this intervention, Hörl has developed the figure of the "optimist" who, holding up his thumb, frankly and without being censored, shares his likes with the rest of the world offline.> more
The 250th anniversary of this musical genius's birthday will be celebrated in December 2020.
Last year's presentation of the figure of a smiling Beethoven in Bonn, where the composer was born, was a resounding success. A Beethoven installation at Wertheim Village – in strong pop colours – is now on view. Running until mid-September. > more
Since 1982, Ottmar Hörl has developed photo concepts with a focus on automated picture taking. Cameras were thrown from planes, for instance, were attached to the rims of car tyres, or even shot at to create pictures that capture segments of reality beyond human interference, a reality that is no longer defined as such by the artist's view. > more
Is it possible to visualise the way we look at something? Are we in a position to really understand art that was created in the past? Is there a difference between looking at art through another medium?
These are the pivotal questions regarding art appreciation which Ottmar Hörl focuses on in his "Picture Interferences" (since 2009), on view now alongside other pieces in his current exhibition in Ghent entitled "Ottmar Hörl". The exhibition will be opened this coming Saturday in the artist's presence. It will be on show at the Centrum voor Jonge Kunst between 19 January and 22 March 2020.> more
Since 15 September, when the exhibition "Souvenir, Souvenir?!" was opened, visitors have been able to gain an entirely new perspective of St Peter's Cathedral in Regensburg: they may take the building in their hands, may turn it, and take a look at its roof. And they may ask themselves the question whether this object, which appears in four different colours here, really is a souvenir … The exhibition will be on show in Neupfarrplatz square in Regensburg until 29 September. > more
