    This online viewing room is dedicated to Rebecca Horn's kinetic works and her paintings. It also features a short video shot during a recent visit to the artist's studio and the Moontower Foundation in Odenwald. The viewing room accompanies Rebecca Horn’s current exhibition at the gallery, where two of her seminal installations from the 1990s are on view, namely "Turm der Namenlosen" (1994) and "Bee's Planetary Map" (1998). This exhibition is on view from 28 April to 26 June 2021.

    It was also with works by Rebecca Horn that Galerie Thomas Schulte opened its inaugural exhibition in April 1991. 30 years and many joint projects later, the gallery continues its active collaboration with one of Germany’s most important female artists.

  • KINETIC WORKS

    Rebecca Horn early in her career explored the relationship between body and space through performance. Later on, she replaced the human body with machines performing repetitive and regular movements. They are mechanical creatures made of wires. They are not perfect; like humans they quiver and they fail, they can be aggressive and tender.

  • PAINTINGS

    Rebecca Horn’s oeuvre is continuously formed and reformed by intersecting and mutually reinforcing creative impulses and directions of inquiry. It is through her poetic imagination that Rebecca Horn obscures and stretches the figure into infinite depths and heights, her body being the central tool in her artistic creation. 

    In her “Body Landscapes”—airy, large paintings that correspond to her body radius—the artist measures the large papers on which she draws according to the length of her arms. Pencil-marked focal points correspond to her own body’s center and often remain visible in the final piece.

  • “I’ve often thought about how to capture soul structures, how to bring them down to a two-dimensional plane.”

  • A Visit to Rebecca Horn's Moon Tower Foundation

    The video presents a selection of some of Rebecca Horn's most famous kinetic sculptures and lesser known, recent works together with excerpts from the artist's films. It is the result of a recent trip to Rebecca Horn's studio in Bad König in Odenwald, Germany, where the artist has lived since 1989. The former factory site belonged to her family and was renovated over the course of several years. Since 2010, it houses the Moontower Foundation with a museum and studios supporting younger artists and musicians.

    ABOUT THE ARTIST

    Having studied in Hamburg and London, from 1989, Rebecca Horn (born 1944 in Michelstadt, Germany) taught at the University of the Arts in Berlin for almost two decades. In 1972, she was the youngest artist to be invited by curator Harald Szeemann to present her work in documenta 5. Her work was later also included in documenta 6 (1977), 7 (1982) and 9 (1992) as well as in the Venice Biennale (1980; 1986; 1997), the Sydney Biennale (1982; 1988) and as part of Skulptur Projekte Münster (1997). Throughout her career she has received numerous awards including Kunstpreis der Böttcherstraße (1979), Arnold-Bode-Preis (1986), Carnegie Prize (1988), Kaiserring der Stadt Goslar (1992), ZKM Karlsruhe Medienkunstpreis (1992), Alexej von Jawlensky-Preis Wiesbaden (2007), Alice Salomon Poetik Preis, Berlin (2009), Praemium Imperiale Tokyo (2010), Pour le Mérite for Sciences and the Arts (2016) and, most recently, the Wilhelm Lehmbruck Prize (2017). A first mid-career retrospective of Horn’s work was organized in 1993 by the Guggenheim Museum, New York. It was the museum’s first solo exhibition dedicated to a female artist. The exhibition traveled to the Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, Nationalgalerie Berlin, Kunsthalle Wien, Tate Gallery and Serpentine Gallery in London, and the Musée de Grenoble. A second retrospective was presented at the Hayward Gallery in London in 2005. Another retrospective took place at Martin Gropius-Bau in Berlin in 2006. In 2019, two major exhibitions of her work took place simultaneously at Centre Pompidou-Metz and at Museum Tinguely in Basel. Rebecca Horn’s works are represented internationally in many important museums.
