German Monument Protection Authority prevents erection of multicultural "Hörl Family" close to monument by Nazi artist
On the grounds that it is "non-tolerable", the Rüsselsheim Lower Monument Protection Authority rejected an application by housing company Gewobau to erect a multicoloured group of figures created by Ottmar Hörl to mark the occasion of the 2017 Hessentag (or Hessian Day). The group of figures was to be positioned in the square outside the railway station, in the vicinity of automaker Opel's historic factory façade and a monument to Adam Opel. Read the complete report on the current discussion about the group of sculptures entitled "Family Get-together".
