Korrespondez, a box set of elaborate facsimiles, makes the correspondence of German conceptual artist Hanne Darboven (1941–2009) available to the public for the very first time. The box contains a collection of letters both received and sent by the artist. Among the correspondents are Carl Andre, Roy Colmer, Isi Fiszman, Sol LeWitt, Lawrence Weiner and members of the artist’s family; other artist colleagues (John Baldessari, Daniel Buren, Gilbert & George, Richard Lindner, Reiner Ruthenbeck, Ruth Vollmer); collectors (Peter Ludwig, Giuseppe Panza di Biumo, Karl Ströher, Mia and Martin Visser); curators (Johannes Cladders, Douglas Crimp, Klaus Honnef, Kasper König, Lucy Lippard, Franz Meyer, Diane Waldman); and gallery owners (Leo Castelli, Konrad Fischer). A limited edition of only 200 numbered copies, this special publication reveals an artist, collector and composer who also had a great talent for writing.
