Hanne Darboven, art & project, BULLETIN 28, Amsterdam, 1970

Duration: October 24 November 13, 1970

Dimensions:  29.6 x 21 cm

Further Information: Run from 1968 to 2001 by Geert van Beijeren & Adriaan van Ravesteijn, art & project was a very influential art space and gallery, particularly for the conceptual art movement. Each invitation was sent in the form of a numbered bulletina format the gallery kept until 1989 with a total of 156 magazines. Almost all of the bulletins have the same format and layout: While the front revealed the information about the show, the inside was typically designed by the exhibiting artists themselves and thus functioned as an edition.

A short film by Freunde der National Galerie by Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (in German) gives a short insight into the practice of the Hamburg-born artist Hanne Darboven, on occasion of a retrospective show dedicated to her correspondences with other artists from the early Minimal and Conceptual Art movements: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxfhYLCe2iU

Another short film, produced by Haus der Kunst in Munich and Bundeskunsthalle Bonn also presents her work in a short film via https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnJ15MUrsaY

Images: All images from this invitation and other examples of art & project invitations on this website are part of the Sammlung Marzona, Kunstbibliothek – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.


Outstanding not only for its minimalist layout and cover design, the art & project bulletin was unique for the individual double spread that it offered for each show to the exhibiting artist for her or his individual design. This invitation below has been designed by Ger van Elk as the art & project, Bulletin 19, 1970.
