Hanne Darboven. Enlightenment

Booklet 18.09.15 2015

The exhibition booklet accompanying "Hanne Darboven. Enlightenment" contains an overview of the exhibition spaces and short explanatory texts on the expansive work series from cultural history, music, literature, and (natural) science. The center are two principal installations: The first focuses on Darboven's books and publications, evoking in the viewer a sense of standing in a grand library at the heart of an Enlightenment institution; the second installation is a presentation of the original "music room" of Darboven's studio in Hamburg.
