Compiling columns of numbers on typewriter paper, Hanne Darboven (1941-2009) catalogued time. Probably the most important German Conceptual artist, Darboven added, cross-totaled, wrote down, recorded. In her hands, notated moments in time coalesced into works of art. This collage-like biography focuses on a fascinatingly androgynous female figure, setting out on a search for the traces of her life. Born into an upper-class family in Hamburg, Darboven experienced her artistic awakening in New York in the 1960s and ultimately carved out a stellar career as an artist. Here, transcribed conversations, narrative passages and interviews with fellow artists such as Lawrence Weiner, Carl Andre, Joseph Kosuth, Kasper König and Rainer Langhans are interspersed with one another. This intimate perspective demonstrates Darboven's artistic development and enables readers to more easily access her influential oeuvre.

Among the elements of Hanne Darboven's title homage are "Picassoesque" hand-painted frames used by a Polish company on reproductions of Woman in Turkish Dress, and a brass goat, which her own goat Micky may have co-created. By alluding to Picasso's use of a goat motif and connecting his late period with her early one, she argues that the repetitiveness of Picasso's work in the later years revealed the limitations of painting, in contrast to the limitless possibilities of the repetition inherent in her own conceptual style. This updated and expanded reprise of the title installation, commissioned on its tenth anniversary by the Deutsche Guggenheim, envelops the viewer in a sea of Darboven's signature text panels, 270 of which cover the walls and the ceiling of the entrance to the exhibition. They are accompanied by a series of sculptures and an enclosed CD recording of Opus 60, her distinctive musical piece for 120 voices.
