Summary

Summary

Bold and necessary in both critical approach and geographical range, Beyond Preconceptions: The Sixties Experiment provides a look at parallel art developments in Eastern and Western Europe and in North and South America in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This richly illustrated catalogue and its five revelatory essays show how a small, forward-thinking group of artists translated similar concepts into a variety of approaches based on their specific cultural context. These artists include Joseph Beuys, Marcel Broodthaers, Lygia Clark, Hanne Darboven, Victor Grippo, Eva Hesse, Ilya Kabakov, Jiri Kolar, Bruce Nauman and Helio Oticica. The new models of artistic practice developed by these artists continue to shape what a younger generation of artists is creating today, particularly where institutional critique and concepts of authorship are concerned.
