Sep 28, 2021 – Jan 1, 2022
Kunstforum Wien
Wien, Austria

Rebecca Horn is noted as one of the most extraordinary and versatile artists of her generation. The Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien is celebrating her with the first comprehensive retrospective of her works in Austria in almost thirty years. The exhibition focuses on the interrelationships in various media between the diverse genres in Rebecca Horn’s works and will present a wide-ranging and insightful view into her artistic practice.

Rebecca Horn achieved fame in 1972 as the youngest participant in the epochal documenta 5 with the title Individual Mythologies – curated by Harald Szeemann. Her early body art and performances, her feature films and kinetic sculptures, her location-specific installations, also her intimate drawings and poems are ample evidence of the richly facetted quality of Rebecca Horn’s oeuvre. She has been practicing her art now for fifty years, during which time she has created her own symbolically charged cosmos in which reality and fiction overlap, and dualisms such as material/spirit, subject/object, male/female are transgressed. Her works make up an expanding web of objects, motifs and themes that she constantly spins anew. In doing so she interweaves numerous traditions of art, literature and film – likewise mythology and the world of fairy tales.
