◆ Ottmar Hörl: Hommage to Dürer‣ Exhibition Period : February 10, 2015 ~ December 6, 2015
‣ Venue : Daegu Art Museum Outdoor Park
Ottmar Hörl has displayed his works in an open space where many can visit, not in typical exhibit spaces such as art museums or galleries, as he believes that public places are ideal for installing artworks. He attempts to break down the realistic restriction of the term “art” which denotes that works of art are only installed in restricted spaces such as art museums and galleries, posing a question of “What is contemporary art?” in this process.
