Daniel Spoerri has given one of his recent sculptures to the municipality Hadersdorf Kammern (Austria) where his museum “Ausstellungshaus Spoerri” is located. The bronze figure will be set up at the main place of the village at the end of Jzuly and will be inaugurated on August, 25th.
In May 2012 Daniel Spoerri has been honoured in a very special
way. On occasion of the opening of his exhibition at the Museum of Natural
History in Vienna (“Daniel Spoerri im NHM – ein inkompetenter
Dialog?“ until Sept. 17th, 2012), a so far inominated beetle has been
named after Daniel Spoerri: Philomyceta spoerrii.
