The title of this year’s exhibit, “Abgestempelt,” comes from the German word “abstempeln,” which has a literal and a figurative meaning. The first is to rubber stamp something. The second is to label, usually negatively and permanently (Duden).



Marita Windemuth-Osterloh

Marita Windemuth-Osterloh's installations and portrait sculpture reflect on the mind and on people’s psychological space. She seeks to inspire respect and understanding for people who are often marginalized in society. Imbued with vulnerability and beauty, her subjects confront the viewer with identity issues, but are never sensationalistic or voyeuristic.

Franz-Josef Osterloh

Franz-Josef Osterloh uses a method he calls “additive imagery,” a combination of painting and graphic art. Currently, “stamp prints” are his preferred medium. Having made his first woodcut, “Blinder Orpheus” (Blind Orpheus), with three color plates in 1967, he now creates prints incorporating many small wooden or linoleum stamps as well as digital images. Osterloh’s collages feature a unique visual language.
