In the exploration of abstraction and the Zero avant-garde, of constructive and concrete tendencies, an independent strand of minimalism developed in Germany in the sixties. This publication is devoted to reductionist works by German artists who produced large sculptures, series of visual objects, and action-oriented work concepts, representing a specifically German aspect of Minimal Art as an international phenomenon of the sixties. Essays on minimalist tendencies in Germany in the areas of art, architecture, literature, film, and design of this period expand the context. The catalogue features around one hundred works, most of them part of the Daimler Art Collection, by about forty artists, including artistic stances as diverse as those of Hartmut Böhm, Imi Giese, Hanne Darboven, Hermann Glöckner, Heinz Mack, Peter Roehr, Charlotte Posenenske, Ulrich Rückriem, and Franz Erhard Walther.

Texts by Sandra Berchtel, Miriam Bürkle, Nadine Brüggebors, Burkhard Brunn, Susannah Cremer-Bermbach, Irina Hiebert Grun, Norbert Grob, Dorothée Henschel, Paul Kayser, Paul Maenz, Hans Meyer, Julia Müller, Miriam Schoofs, Gregor Stemmrich, Astrid Silvia Schönhagen, Renate Wiehager, et.al.
