Goethe Installation at Frankfurt University

Interview with Prof. Hörl

Goethe Installation at Frankfurt University in summer 2014

At Campus Westend of the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Professor Ottmar Hörl’s Goethe installation took place in summer 2014.

Prof. Dr. Hörl as a conceptual artist could be convinced to design and produce a series of four hundred figures depicting the man who lent his name to our university. These monochrome sculptures in four colors, which take up the former colors of the university faculties welcomed visitors to the university in summer 2014.

„ Goethe is one of  the most fascinating personalities from Frankfurt. He was cosmopolitan, curious, looking beyond his immediate surroundings and he developed an incredible range in many fields that can serve as inspiration for future generations.“

Prof. Ottmar Hörl


„I do not see cu ltue as an  hierarchical concept but instead strive for as many people in a society as possible to be  involved with culture .“
