Minimalism in Germany. The Sixties II

Abstraction and Seriality, Zero, Concrete Tendencies and Sculpture as Action

March 31st — September 23rd 2012
Daimler Contemporary Berlin

In the early 1960s in Germany, a new kind of Minimalism developed that was initially largely independent from the developments in America at the time. This German Minimalism was in many cases stimulated by, but also in conflict with Concrete Art and the European Zero avant-garde, which drew attention to itself from 1957 on, starting in Düsseldorf, with unusually staged exhibitions and spectacular projects for public space.

The Minimalism in Germany. The Sixties II exhibition is the second part of a series addressing tendencies of Minimalism Art in Germany in the 1960s. The first event in 2010 dealt with important trends in reduced, abstract art in the 1960s, and the current show concentrates on a small number of striking exponents who worked with large-scale works, serial picture objects or action-oriented work concepts. You are seeing about 40 works by 12 artists linked with the cities of Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Stuttgart and Berlin.
