Since 1981, the draftsman and collage artist Horst Haack, who lives alternately in Paris and Darmstadt, has been working on his «Chronographie Terrestre (Work in Progress)». His walk-in diary can be read as an ongoing commentary on current affairs, but also shows inner worlds, visions, literary quotations and absurd humour. By toluol on the paper detached images associated with texts of their own origin, color, composition, stroke and typography give each sheet the character of a laboratory where just happens unheard. In Darmstadt, the last intermediate version of Opus magnus by Horst Haack was shown in 2004 at the Institut Mathildenhöhe. On the occasion of the anniversary of the Darmstadt Secession, there is the opportunity to marvel at the «labyrinth of picture» that has since grown to over 200 panels with 6000 images.
