Biography Rebecca Horn
Rebecca Horn was born in Michelstadt, Germany, March 24, 1944, a year before the end of World War II. From 1964-1970, she studied in Hamburg, Germany, at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste. Horn is a sculptor, film-maker, performance and installation artist. Due to a lung illness and subsequent hospitalization in 1968 resulting from her poisoning by materials she was using for sculpture -- possibly from inhaling the fumes of fiber glass -- she turned to soft sculpture that suggested bandages and prostheses.
Until 1871, Horn lived in Hamburg, Germany, then briefly in London, England, before moving to West Berlin in 1973. She teaches at the Akademie der Kunst in Berlin.
Her first public performance took place in 1971 in Kassel
