Upcoming exhibition 
Hanne Darboven & Julia Gaisbacher: Am Burgberg

Opening: 25 October 2023 
Location: Kunstraum München, Munich (DE)
Curated by Luise Horn & Dietmar Rübel

The exhibition juxtaposes work by the two artists as well as features two new pieces by Gaisbacher that make reference to
Am Burgberg, Darboven’s lifelong residence and place of work in Hamburg-Harburg.

In the 1960s, Hanne Darboven (1941–2009) founded Conceptual Art with her artist friends. Her key contribution to the emergence of Conteptual Art is that she succeeded in developing her own independent methods for the representation of periods of time—days, months, years, or even a century. In addition to this central aspect of time, the exhibition focuses in particular on the specific location of this artistic practice.

Julia Gaisbacher (*1983) has created two new pieces for the exhibition which are the result of on-site research in Hamburg-Harburg since the summer of 2022. She has approached Hanne Darboven’s home with photographic and cinematic methods, conducted interviews with various companions for this artistic research, and reconstructed the camera shots of Der Mond ist aufgegangen in the streets of Harburg.
