Portrait of Hanne Darboven

For Darboven, art is a cross between concept and discipline. In ascetic withdrawal, she has been working tirelessly on recording time on thousands of sheets of paper. Now, her "Hommage à Picasso" can be seen at the Deutsche Guggenheim. Angela Rosenberg on the Grande Dame of conceptual art.

Interview: Tim Eitel

Lost in the brave new world. Tim Eitel's protagonists float like somnambulists through galleries and parks. Until recently, his paintings have been characterized by bright colors and sharp contours. In his new works, however, his figures become lost in a nighttime black. Sebastian Preuss had a talk with the artist.

Dieter Roth & Dorothy Iannone

They were one of the most fascinating couples on the art scene: the American painter, video artist, and author Dorothy Iannone and the brilliant outsider Dieter Roth. While Roth's works have been enjoying fame for a long time, Ianonne's unique and sensuous oeuvre is now being rediscovered internationally as well.

Uta Barth

Random gazes, everyday impressions, and blurry images of flowers or empty spaces - the photographic works of Uta Barth evoke a sense of intimacy. Yet the artist is not interested in autobiographic representation or narration, but in the challenge of actually seeing. Cheryl Kaplan interviewed the art photographer.

Splendid Isolation

It’s the stubbornly unique works that rewrite art history. Hanne Darboven’s exhibition “Hommage à Picasso” at the Deutsche Guggenheim demonstrates the importance of artists who deliberately retreat to an outsider position. We’re taking this as an opportunity to dedicate our current issue to personalities pursuing artistic paths completely on their own – and whose works above all subscribe to the notion of “Splendid Isolation” +++ Withdrawn from the world, tireless, and with inimitable consistency, Hanne Darboven, the Grande Dame of contemporary art, has carried on her work with time, numbers, and personal and collective memory. A portrait +++ The people in Tim Eitel’s paintings seem locked inside themselves. Isolated, they drift through strangely sterile worlds the artist constructs from cool, clearly defined fields of color. In his new works, the figures are lost in a nighttime black. An interview +++ In her photographs, Uta Barth removes as many references to the real world as possible – in order to unsettle the viewer, because, according to Barth, this is the only way to get people to look more closely +++ For decades, Dorothy Iannone has been creating her own artistic cosmos. While her almost naïve-seeming erotic drawings were considered scandalous until the seventies, Ianonne, Dieter Roth’s former partner, is currently celebrating an international revival +++
