Hanne Darboven
Detail from Quartett >88<, 1989
 
This installation by West German artist Hanne Darboven consists of 800 framed pages of her tremendously manual and obsessive "writings," in this case featuring the lives and achievements of Madam Curie, Rosa Luxemburg, Gertrude Stein, and Virginia Woolf. This display is juxtaposed with a display case containing a stiflingly feminine mannequin in equally stereotypical attire. In collaboration with Portikus, Frankfurt, West Germany, the Society will publish an 800 page book to accompany the exhibition.
