Room 001.01 The Art of the Concept: Analysis and Critique

Room?s details

The 1960s and 70s saw all manner of ideas exploring approaches to concepts to do with the nature of art and the critical situation of painting at a moment of directional change. Artists tried to introduce a level of transparency to the ideological factors that determine the artistic experience, using a number of strategies, from language analysis to criticism of the role of cultural institutions. Following Italy and the USA’s lead, Northern Europe created a group to activate these interests across Amsterdam, Düsseldorf and Cologne.
