Alles nur Tapete ‒ Heribert C. Ottersbach

Seemingly unrelated pictures from recent years are being shown at the Kunstverein Hechingen: still lifes, painted signatures, trivial architecture. They are all an expression of Ottersbach's critical attitude towards the art scene, which is both overly commercialised and apparently mistakes itself for art. This was already the theme of his exhibitions »Das erste Mal« (Thomas Salis, Salzburg) and »Umständehalber abzugeben« (Beck & Eggeling, Düsseldorf + Wien) in 2016. His most recent »depictions of terrain« carry the theme forward. The exhibition in Hechingen comprises works from all above mentioned contexts.
