> DESCRIPTION

Concept Art as an independent artistic movement developed in the USA and Europe in the mid 1960s, based on fundamentally new definitions of the work of art and the role of the viewer in Minimal Art and Zero Avantgarde around 1960.

The characteristic formal features are clearly defined: objective structures, creative systems that are complete in themselves and - overcoming classical painting and sculpture - a tendency to dematerialize the work of art. The conditions under which art comes into being are examined, along with temporal and spatial structures, the congruency of theory and practice, the possibility of involving the viewer intellectually and physically, and also the general conditions for presenting and responding to art in institutions.
