In the autumn of 2000 an exhibition titled Minimalism and After was conceived for the DaimlerChrylser Collection as one of the focal points of its long-term acquisition planning. It anticipated the trend of 2004-05, when important museums devoted attention to Minimalism and geometric/constructive concepts as significant and always politically motivated phenomena in Europe and the USA around 1960.
Minimalism and After began with the notion of positioning formally reduced visual concepts and geometric abstraction as artistic phenomena alongside classic Minimal art, no longer regarding developments in Europe and America as strictly separate. This made it possible to rediscover the history of Minimal art and its effects, beginning with the “emigration” of Bauhaus and Constructivism in the 1930s and their reception in the USA, and eventually leading up to international contemporary art today.
This volume presents approximately 270 works by 148 artists in the form of substantial monographs, and supplemented by essays that summarize national and stylistic characteristics.
