On its way to the 2017 Luther Decade, Ottmar Hörl's sculptural project "Martin Luther: Here I Stand ..." has left its mark. Eight hundred coloured "Luther dwarfs", about one metre tall and reproductions of Schadow's neo-classical Luther bronze, not only populated the historic market square of the town of Wittenberg, resulting in wide coverage on the Luther Year, but above all also enlivened a debate on art, aestetics and freedom. The anniversary of Protestantism promises to become a stimulating one, especially so when there will be art and dialogue along the way. One hundred Luther multiples will be stopping over at FFFZ KULTURFORUM, choreographed to their own rhythm.
