Exhibition Openings "Hanne Darboven. Enlightenment" / Archive Gallery 2015/16

Opening 17.09.15, 7 pm

We are pleased to announce the opening of the first retrospective of artist Hanne Darboven's work after her 2009 death, as well as the second presentation in Haus der Kunst's Archive Gallery.

The Hanne Darboven exhibition unites key pieces from the artist's many work series, and is on view in two collaboratively organized and simultaneous presentations at the Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn, and Haus der Kunst in Munich. While both exhibition venues highlight the outstanding and expansive oeuvre of this key conceptual artist in its entire stylistic breadth, each offers a different focal point within it.

The second presentation of the Archive Gallery at Haus der Kunst opens at the same time. It focuses on interventions in the building's architecture and treatments of its facade. With "Résistance" by Christian Boltanski (1993–94) and Gustav Metzger's "Travertine/Judenpech" (1999), Haus der Kunst reanimates the first two artistic interventions created specifically for the facade and portico of the National Socialist building, which opened in 1937.
