Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart

Berlin, Germany

Event map


Having received a gift of 15 works and groups of works representing all of the late artist Hanne Darboven’s (1941–2009) stylistic phases, the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin is dedicating an exhibition to this important representative of conceptual art in Germany. The early drawings in the endowment from Susanne and Michael Liebelt demonstrate how Darboven’s art was initially a response to the Minimal Art and Conceptual Art of the New York art scene during her time there, after which she increasingly began to create larger, independent groups of works using constructions of numbers based on calendar dates. Correspondence from the late 1960s and early 1970s which clarifies the development of this unique notation system forms a central part of the exhibition. Works by Darboven and her artistic colleagues including Carl Andre, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Daniel Buren, Sol LeWitt, and Lawrence Weiner from the collections of the Nationalgalerie, the Kupferstichkabinett and the Kunstbibliothek complete the display.

The exhibition is made possible by the Freunde der Nationalgalerie.
