The Sixties

Art and Culture of the 1960s in Germany

October 8th 2012 — September 27th 2013
Stuttgart-Möhringen

The current exhibition in Möhringen brings together 1960s art works—pictures, reliefs, light objects, drawings, sculptures—that developed independently as German artists explored American Minimal Art.

Political and social change meant that art’s significance, resources, materials and functions were being questioned and redefined. So artists experimented with serial arrangements (Roehr), the use of industrially pre-prepared materials (Posenenske) and with including viewers and the space in the work of art (Buchholz, Walther). The ZERO group artists worked with light, movement and space (Mack). Parallel to minimal tendencies, the 1960s were characterized by figurative-expressive painting (Grieshaber, Antes).
