Rebecca Horn (1944– ) is a multidisciplinary artist whose work encompasses sculpture, body art, paintings, films and poetry. Born in Michelstadt, Germany, she went to boarding school as a child. One of her memories of the cold severity of her schooldays is reflected in The Moon, the Child and the River of Anarchy (1992) which features school desks attached in rows to the ceiling with a series of tubes connecting them.
