On both sides of the Atlantic artists, in the early 1960s, started to question Abstract Expressionism or Informell and their subjective and emotional foundations. These inquiries led to a paring down to the essentials of art making. Simple geometric forms, serial or other systems, a focus on real objects in real space and a general clarity of form were not only typical for works of the so called “minimal artists” but can also be found within a wider circle of European and American artists.
This exhibition brings together a selection of works from international artists who began to explore the essence of materials and forms showing that the formal clarity and simplicity of a work does not reduce the complexity of its perception.
