In presence of Dr. Norbert Riedel, Permanent Representative of the Ambassador of the German Federal Republic in Beijing, China

Exhibition: September 4th - October 30th, 2011

After his studies in art, German literature and philosophyin Cologne, Germany (1979-83) Ottersbach taught as visiting professor in Lisbon and Los Angeles before he was named professor for painting and printmaking at Leipzig's Hochschule fuer Grafik und Buchkunst in fall 2009, succeeding Neo Rauch in that position.

Ottersbach's figurative painting has a conceptual approach, but he does not see himself as a conceptual artist. His work focuses on questions such as the importance of art, the significance of painting, as well as the role of the artist in the context of society. Besides numerous public collections his work has been featured at solo exhibitions such as Hamburger Kunsthalle, Villa Stuck, Munich or Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden. In 2007, Kunsthalle Tuebingen held a retrospective.

Ottersbach is now presenting his first solo show in Beijing, developed collaboratively between artist and gallerist, integrating several works that have only been on view in museums before.
