Rebecca Horn
Body Fantasies

Horn Cover En

In what is meanwhile an oeuvre spanning fifty years, Rebecca Horn (*1944) has created her own symbolic cosmos which, through its openness and poetry, continues to have a profound impact today. In her works, the artist choreographs movements of people and machines. The mechanical motor function of the body and a fantastical dance of objects thereby come to express emotions, the movements of human sensibility.

About the product

In what is meanwhile an oeuvre spanning fifty years, Rebecca Horn (*1944) has created her own symbolic cosmos which, through its openness and poetry, continues to have a profound impact today. In her works, the artist choreographs movements of people and machines. The mechanical motor function of the body and a fantastical dance of objects thereby come to express emotions, the movements of human sensibility. Rebecca Horn’s works include bodily instruments and actions, films, kinetic sculptures, and installations. In the presentation Fantasies of the Body, which combines the early performative works and later kinetic sculptures so as to emphasisee developments within her oeuvre, the major focus is on the transformational processes of body and machine.

The exhibition of the Museum Tinguely is accompanied by a catalogue which includes essays by Sandra Beate Reimann, Antje von Graevenitz, Stefan Zweifel et al., contains numerous colour illustrations as well as texts, poems, and quotations by Rebecca Horn, and presents quotations from works by authors who have a particular relevance for her. A richly illustrated chronology at the end of the catalogue offers a wide range of insights into the development of Rebecca Horn’s oeuvre and its interconnection with her biography.
