Columns of numbers on typewriter paper - Hanne Darboven (1941–2009) cataloged time.

Probably the most important German conceptualist added, added cross-sums, noted, recorded. The moment written down congealed into a work of art under her hands. The montage-like biography goes in search of clues and focuses on a fascinating androgynous female figure. Coming from an upper-class Hamburg family, she experienced her artistic awakening in New York in the 1960s and finally made a steep international artistic career.

Narrated passages, minutes of conversations and interviews with companions such as Lawrence Weiner, Carl Andre, Joseph Kosuth, Kasper König or Rainer Langhans alternate. Last but not least, this personal perspective also makes the artistic development clear and facilitates access to Darboven's hermetic work.
