Ottmar Hörl (born 1950 in Nauheim, Germany) is a notable German artist, art professor and writer.

Hörl has become famous with large installations in Berlin and Munich, among others, and will now realize a spectacular project of his "Art in the public environment" in the city of Nuremberg where he teaches as a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts since 1997.Using about 7000 plastic replicas of Dürer's hare Hörl will transpose the central square in the old town of Nuremberg into a large green corridor of 2500 m². For two weeks, the Nuremberg Main Market will become a "Large Piece of Hare" in honor of Albrecht Dürer before breaking up in its individual components and so to speak merge into the population.

Duplication, the idea of serial production, and large numbers are the center of Hörl's projects. His art intends to inspire communication and to include as many people as possible. Dissolving of the large piece of hare into individual components is part of the concept. After two weeks, one may take a piece of hare home against a nominal charge. The hares move from a public to a personal environment. "I want to reach out with my work, set an impulse and let people take their Dürer home to allow individual, undogmatic altercation."
