"…one glimpse of that wellhead …"

"Then down a little way
Through the trash
Towards where
All dark no begging
No giving no words
No sense no need
Through the scum
Down a little way
To whence one glimpse
Of that wellhead"
(Samuel Beckett)

Aside from his studies of mathematics, physics and art, Bruce Nauman intensely engaged himself with music and philosophy -particularly the writings of Ludwig Wittgenstein and the work of Samuel Beckett.

In December 2003 Dr. Christine Hoffmann will lecture on Literary-Philosophical Escapades into the Structure of Nauman's Work. This special event is complementing the exhibition Bruce Nauman: Theatres of Experience, which can be seen from October 30, 2003 to January 18, 2004 at Deutsche Guggenheim (€ 5; Reduced Rate € 3).

Dr. Christine Hoffmann curated the exhibition Samuel Beckett / Bruce Nauman in the Kunsthalle Wien and is contributing author to the exhibition catalogue Bruce Nauman: Theaters of Experience. Alongside her activities as an independent curator, she directs the Kunstverein LandKunstLeben, Buchholz.
