Seminal Exhibition “ZERO: The international art movement of the 1950s and 60s” at Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin runs through June 8th 2015.
From the Berliner Festspiele / Martin-Gropius-Bau’s website,
“Sometimes the real revolutions in art remain invisible until they are long past, yet the subterranean shock waves can persist for generations.” Daniel Birnbaum, ZERO aus heutiger Sicht, 2014 Over 50 years after the founding of the ZERO movement the exhibition is devoted not only to the first founding artists Heinz Mack, Otto Piene and Günther Uecker, nor even just to these international artists who were close to ZERO such as Yves Klein and Lucio Fontana, but also to such forgotten artists as Hermann Goepfert, Oskar Holweck or Hans Salentin.
The exhibition shows how light could be used in such media as painting, kinetic art, installations, performances, films and publications. Within the framework of the exhibition there will be a public accompanying programme, DYNAMO, which – alongside the aesthetic experience of the ZERO works in the exhibition – will offer a synaesthetic approach to art and culture.
