‘Place and Time’: Exhibition of German conceptual artist Darboven stems from Princeton classroom

April 26, 2018

The seeds of a multi-venue exhibition opening April 27 at Princeton University, “Hanne Darboven’s Address — Place and Time,” were planted in a seminar a year ago.

The exhibition emerged from a spring 2017 seminar “Art Against Culture?” led by Brigid Doherty, associate professor of German and art and archaeology and director of the Program in European Cultural Studies. Students explored the wide range of ways in which Darboven and other artists and writers in late 20th-century Germany sought to disrupt cultural norms for the representation of time and place in response to the difficulties of reckoning with recent German history, Doherty said.

Installation sites include the Princeton University Art Museum, the Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology (McCormick Hall), the Department of Art & Archaeology (McCormick Hall), and the Department of German (East Pyne Building).
