Making Being Here Enough: Impulsvorträge über Roni Horn mit anschließender Diskussion

In the organizer's words:

What is it all about?

With Roni Horn, one thing does not usually follow from another, which is why her work is so multifaceted. Her installations, photo series and works on paper are full of repetitions, doppelgangers and recurrences, and identity is as fleeting as a stream of water. But why do we believe that works of art convey identity? And what do artists make of this assumption? In images as in language, in portraits as in her titles, Horn plays with the idea of contradictory moments, of ambiguity and paradox - and of the illusionary attempt to capture identity in a single image.
