Gustav Seitz in Trebnitz
Since March 2015 the Gustav Seitz Foundation will show its exhibition ‘Gustav Seitz in Trebnitz’ in the outbuilding, which has been freshly renovated by the Trebnitz Castle Association. The exhibition continues the co-operation with the foundation that began in the summer of 2014 and paves the way for the Gustav Seitz Centre to move its location from Hamburg to Trebnitz. It is planned for the new Gustav Seitz Centre to open its doors at the end of 2016 in the ‘Old Wash House’ at Trebnitz Castle, which has been renovated especially for the centre.
In future, the centre will host varying exhibitions that present individual aspects of the work of Gustav Seitz in alignment with the educational focus of the Trebnitz Castle Association.
The exhibition can be visited during the following times:
Mo-Fr 8 am – 9:30 am / 12 am – 5 pm
Sa 11 am – 6 pm
Su 10 am – 5 pm

Over 100 artists applied to take part in the two-week plein air from August 2nd – 16th 2014, which focused on the human figure in sculpture. The theme centred closely around famous German sculptors of the twentieth century in both the co-operation with the Gustav Seitz Foundation and with the awarding of the Gustav Seitz prize. The works were then presented in the exhibition ‘Who is afraid of Figurative Sculpture?’
