Hanne Darboven. KorrespondenzWalther König
In 1966 Hanne Darboven moved her professional base from Hamburg to New York. Here, steeped in an exchange with Manhattan's international art scene, she refined her strategies for combining notation with handwriting, creating a technique she was to apply for decades to come. The Korrespondenz (Correspondence) Darboven kept between 1967 and 1975 is a key to the genesis of the unique system of inscription. Her writing is a palpable process, where rhythms gradually build until they resemble musical movements and the unusual principles of repetition and variation underlying its construction emerge with growing clarity.Hanne Darboven
