Kinder dieser Welt Hanne Darboven

Published by Hatje Cantz, Berlin, 1997, 184 pages (colour & b/will.), hardcover with CD insert, 21.5 × 30.3 cm, German

Price: €23

From 1990 to 1996, Hanne Darboven worked on Kinder dieser Welt, an extensive opus comprised of several books, toys, brown-paper tablets and 2202 musical “scores”. In a departure from previous practice, the artist employs coloration and a playful approach to modify the stringency of her concept involving the subjective rendering of calendar information to conjure up a cosmopolitan children’s world as a symbol for an optimistic new beginning.

This book reproduces the formally quite diverse and complex segments of the work in sections. An introductory essay explores the way in which the artist fundamentally recapitulates her entire concept of space and time in Kinder dieser Welt, shaping it into an appeal for the discovery of individual rules. An annotated works catalogue and a detailed biography document the life and work of the artist, the recipient of the 1995 International Prize of the state of Baden-Württemberg.
