Friederike Hinz has been working with the complex motif of the hare for more than four decades. Sometimes she links artistic questions to the subject, sometimes she deals with problems of perception in her paintings, graphics and objects, or questions about how to deal with nature. For example, impressive ink sheets from the Apollodorus series are dedicated to the 70 or so different herbs, grasses, flowers, field crops, buds and delicate branches that the European hare eats. Some of these plants are threatened with extinction, as is the habitat of the hare itself. Behind the series “Field Trial,” which includes sixteen variations of a maize field without the colour red, is the fact that hares cannot perceive this colour.
The installation MON.810-September is a 360-degree panoramic view that the rabbit is capable of; Hares in the Field thematizes proximity/distance and sharpness/unsharpness relations in the rabbit’s perception.

The exhibition comprises a selection of about one hundred works from the last twenty years. It was conceived by the artist as a structure consisting of a multiplicity of planes, lines and directions.

The hare is also a central motif in Joseph Beuys’ work. Thus the exhibition is partly shown parallel to the presentation “Joseph Beuys – Hasengräber.”
