Item description for Rebecca Horn: Drawings, Sculptures, Installations 1964-2006 by Armin Zweite...
"Drawing has always been supremely important to me," Rebecca Horn said in an interview a few years ago, likely surprising many readers. Rebecca Horn: Drawings, Sculptures, Installations, Films 1964-2006 brings together a wide-ranging collection of the artist's works on paper, many produced in conjunction with her early performances. Along with props, they reveal the intense physical and mental work that went into the aesthetics of those pieces. A selection of diagrammatic representations also illustrates Horn's strategies in placing machines and equipment from films in exhibitions, where they took on a life of their own. The book also includes scores, technical designs and evidently spontaneous drawings, many of which are enriched with collaged objects, printed words and lines of poetry. This first publication devoted to a previously largely overlooked group of works provides an excellent survey of Horn's graphic art.

Wanting more Jan 22, 2008
I agree with the previous review. This book is missing some of the critical works and powerful discussions generated by Rebecca Horn, the book is incomplete.
Strong Artist, not comprehensive book. Feb 2, 2007
I was hoping for a more thorough compendium of this powerful artist's work. This book is good, but it's missing some important pieces in Horn's portfolio. Still her work is profound and makes me want to see it all, in person. The art is installation, drawings and performances of a very experiential nature, somewhat akin to Bruce Nauman.
