DESCRIPTION

The founders as well as contemporary representatives of Conceptual art examine the conditions under which art comes into being, 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.

The artworks in the current exhibition are meditations on the aspects body, space and volume and their role as materials and media essential to the creation of art. The exhibition juxtaposes conceptual philosophies of art from the 1960/70s – such as those of Lewitt, O’Doherty, Miyamoto and Sandback – with pictorial and media statements of contemporary artists.
