In recent years Heribert C. Ottersbach (*1960) and his exhibitions have again and again been favorably received by the public. His art focuses on questions regarding the history of the modern era and the various ways it is communicated through media, as well as issues such as the value of art, the significance of the studio, and the role and position of the artist in the context of contemporary society. For Ottersbach, painting is an integral element of the social discourse, a way to position the processes of thought in a painterly, visual manner. Since 1995, he has been especially occupied with producing large, partially intersecting groups of works such as Modernebilder (Modern Images), Echtzeit 6889 (Real Time 6889), or the Archivbilder (Archival Images).Containing an extensive biography of the artist, this publication surveys about 120 works dating from 1995 to 2006. It also presents Nachbilder (After-Images), a series of 61 portraits created between 2004 and 2006, for the first time in its entirety. Exhibition schedule: Kunsthalle Tübingen, January 13–March 25, 2007
