»Well, my friend, Ottersbach goes Austria? How come?« FK Blaustein
FK Blaustein and Heribert C. Ottersbach meet at the beginning of 2016 to discuss the German painter's first exhibition ever in Austria at Thomas Salis' in Salzburg. Their profound and critical exchange about art, the art scene and the way in which art is being dealt with by a market-based society makes entertaining reading.
The conversation, at the end of which FK Blaustein promises to deliver the opening speech at Heribert C. Ottersbach's subsequent exhibition in autumn 2016 at Beck & Eggeling's in Düsseldorf, is published full length in the Salzburg catalogue. Sadly the promised address was never given.
