Internationally renowned artist Rebecca Horn’s personal retrospective film, Moon Mirror Journey (2011), premiered at the Berliner Festspiele earlier this year. Her film looks back at her most important works from the past 25 years. These range from the Concert in Reverse in Münster (1987) and the Concert for Buchenwald (1999, Weimar and Ettersberg Castle) to the large retrospective of her work at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in 2007. An absorbing, poetic life’s journey has emerged from the wealth of footage, and the film is a voyage through time and space that Rebecca Horn has called her ‘Sufi journey’.
