Item description for Martin Mosebach & Rebecca Horn: Das Lamm by Martin Mosebach...
Martin Mosebach writes his books by hand. Between 1995 and 1997, he produced 172 pages of extremely tightly squeezed text in very tiny lettering for a novel provisionally entitled Das Lamm (The Lamb). This translated into a book of 575 pages, which was eventually published as Eine lange Nacht (A Long Night). When Rebecca Horn encountered the original manuscript, she saw each page as a picture in itself, a drawn record of Mosebach's stream of thought and artistic vision. Soon after, she set in motion her collaboration with the writer via this objet trouve by staging The Long Night on location in Frankfurt and photographing it for later overpainting. This artists' book includes facsimiles of Mosebach's original pages and prints of Horn's photo-paintings, which are inserted loose into the book like bookmarks or notes. Limited edition of 350 copies, signed and numbered.
