The worldwide network of the Luther Ambassadors
Photo: Christian Melms"Luther Ambassadors" of the artist Ottmar HörlEight hundred Luther Ambassadors have journeyed around the world since September 12, 2010. Luther figures from Prof. Ottmar Hörl’s installation can be seen in the German parliament in Berlin or in Finland, but also in Dubai, Thailand, and many places in Germany.
Prelate Stephan Dorgerloh is the representative of the Council of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) for Wittenberg and had the idea for the installation. He is now asking all owners of a Luther Ambassador to send a photo to the EKD’s project office ‘Luther 2017’ in Wittenberg; it should show the reproduction of Wittenberg's Luther Monument in its new home.
Prelate Dorgerloh would appreciate a short text in addition to the representative photo: ‘Write and tell us why you purchased a Luther Ambassador. What is your connection to Martin Luther and what do you expect from the Anniversary Celebration of the Reformation in 2017?’
Those interested in participating can send a photo and short text to the project office of the EKD in Wittenberg: . The project office reserves the right to shorten texts, if necessary. The photos are to be authorised for publication.
