Humorous eccentricity and enthusiastic experimentation, on the search for an appropriately contemporary concept of sculpture

In the sixties, artists made renewed efforts to take a good look at the conditions required to create art: production, presentation, and reception. With Minimal Art, institutional critique, and Contextual Art, an ambivalent attitude developed toward the object. This raises the question of the sense and purpose of sculpture in the context of today’s world. This publication presents works by contemporary artists who distinguish themselves through their process-oriented approach and deal with formal composition in an explorative way, employing a wide variety of materials and methods. In doing so, this volume contributes to a general understanding of the concept of the sculptural act. An important reference here is Richard Serra’s Verb List Compilation (1967/68), in which he compiled a list of over one hundred verbs dealing specifically with the treatment of different materials, such as “fold,” “bend,” “tear,” and “press.”
