Between the Viewer and the Work: Encounters in Space

International Conference in the context of the ZERO WeekendOrganised by the ZERO foundation, Düsseldorf

The international art movement ZERO, which formed towards the end of the 1950s, created works of art that penetrate the viewer's space in various ways: for example, through reflections of light, motion, projections, or spatial expansion. This development is to be seen in the context of a general tendency towards abandoning the painting, which could be witnessed around 1960 in a number of countries: From two-dimensional pictures, relief-like objects and assemblages to spatial installations and the integration of processual and performative elements, the works increasingly encroach on the space of the viewer and demand different grades of participation. What role does ZERO play in this context?

The conference sheds light on this question and analyzes the ZERO movement with reference to the demand for "Art for All" that characterized the democratic tendencies after World War II, the "systems aesthetics" developed by Jack Burnham, and the relationship of the visual arts toward architecture. The immersive works by artists of the ZERO movement - and particularly the installations of its main representatives Heinz Mack, Otto Piene and Günther Uecker - are thereby set in comparison with parallel developments in the New York art scene.
