‘Hanne Darboven. Correspondences’ at Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin

Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin presents ‘Hanne Darboven. Correspondences’ through August 27, 2017.The exhibition ‘Hanne Darboven. Correspondences’ shows drawings, numerical constructions and serial images derived from her engagement with Minimal and Conceptual Art. These works are combined with mailings from 1967 to 1975, which reveal the establishment and maintenance of a dense network of fellow artists, curators, and friends. Prior to her death, the artist chose approximately 1,150 letters, postcards, sketches, plans and photographs from this time period for the general public with the title ‘Correspondence.’Hanne Darboven (1941 – 2009) was a German conceptual artist, best known for her large-scale minimalist installations consisting of handwritten tables of numbers. Hanne Darboven filtered her experience of life through time, an entity at once abstract and concrete, much like her own work. Driven by her belief that time is the essence of our existence, she structured her work around it, drawing upon an acute sense of tempo and repetition honed by her training as a pianist. Darboven created innumerable individually framed or bound pages filled with delicately handwritten numbers, mathematical calculations, calendar days, and philosophical passages, sometimes combined with shades of color, images, and objects. The exhibition is on view at Hamburger Bahnhof, Invalidenstraße 50-51, 10557 Berlin, Germany.For details, visit: http://www.smb.museumClick on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the exhibition.
