Lust for Interaction & other Secret Desires

A spotlight on Rebecca Horn.

At once personal and universal, Rebecca Horn signs her private confessions through the use of art. Horn created works during the 70’s while recovering from a severe lung poisoning that isolated her in a hospital for a long time. Her work has been the subject of various solo exhibitions at Centre Pompidou, Tate Modern, the Gropius Bau, the Whitechapel Gallery, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, the Neue Nationalgalerie, and the Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow. She achieved fame in 1972 as the youngest participant in the epochal Documenta 5 with the title Individual Mythologies – curated by Harald Szeemann. Recently, she has participated the Venice Biennale (2022) and her work has sold six figures at auction.
