Blood in the Veins
Rebecca Horn, 77, is one of the best-known German artists: She has built machines that puff up their feathers like peacocks, hung pianos from the ceiling and dressed people in costumes with tubes. Her work is both poetic and brutal. The Kunstforum Wien is hosting a major exhibition from 28th September to 23rd January 2022.
Bettina M. Busse, the curator of the exhibition, got to know Rebecca Horn as a student in the mid-1990s in Berlin when Horn was a professor at the University of the Arts. “She was an unbelievable apparition with her red hair. A real diva“, recalls Busse, who tells you here exclusively which five works you must not miss.
