The exhibition Maribor Project / Rebecca Horn & Guests is more than just a comprehensive retrospective of Rebecca Horn`s oeuvre. It is designed as an intercultural project that includes not only the works of renowned German artist Rebecca Horn but intertwines them with selected works of further fine art artists, thus establishing more and less direct references and entanglements between different generations, cultural contexts and artistic expression. Rebecca Horn invited Matthias Deumlich (1962), Ali Kaaf (1977), Antonio Paucar (1973), Jakob Schaible (1978) and Markus Wüste (1970) to showcase their most recent and prominent art works within the framework of her own retrospective. Employing different material and techniques, all five artists have developed a strong individual artistic language in order to reflect their subjective perception of aesthetic, societal and historical subject matters. Carefully selected and positioned by the artist herself, the exhibition thus visualizes and emphasizes the multifaceted and interconnected layers of material and aesthetic references between more than 50 works.
