Hanne Darboven’s installation Hommage ŕ Picasso, a commissioned work for the Deutsche Guggenheim, documents the last decade of the twentieth century on 9,720 of the artist’s signature sheets of paper with handwritten numeric writing. At the Deutsche Bank’s VIP Lounge at Frieze New York 2012 a selection of 12 panels is shown. They encompass the year 1990, each sheet presents a single day with the date handwritten four times vertically, and each panel is comprised of all the sheets for a single month. Visitors to the lounge also have the possibility to listen to Darboven’s Opus 60, a symphony for 120 players. In its lounge at Frieze New York, Deutsche Bank shows selected works from the corporate collection by artists like Gerhard Richter, John Cage, Christian Marclay, Xaviera Simmons, and Jennie C. Jones that are all dedicated to the theme of music.

German artist Hanne Darboven (b. 1941, d. 2009) is a pioneer of conceptual art. In the 1960s she developed her own conceptual approach by using the neutral language of numerals. In the late 1970s, the aspect of music and composition entered Darboven’s work by creating a system to produce musical scores based on calendar dates and her own personal number systems. Her passionate focus for music remained for the rest of her live. Hanne Darboven’s Opus 60 is part of her major work Hommage ŕ Picasso. The world premiere of Opus 60 took place on 3 February 2006 in Berlin in Deutsche Bank’s covered courtyard on Unter den Linden on the occasion of the opening of the exhibition Hanne Darboven: Hommage ŕ Picasso at the Deutsche Guggenheim.
