  • Hot on the heels of the Guggenheim’s ZERO group show, this celebration of the movement features work by more than forty international artists (many of whom are also affiliated with other movements, including Nouveau Réalisme, Arte Povera, Minimalism, Op art, and kinetic art) whose ideas are in synch with those of ZERO founders Heinz Mack, Otto Piene, and Günther Uecker. In conjunction with this major museum show dedicated to artists who sought an absolute new beginning for art following World War II, Berlin’s ZERO foundation has organized an exhibition featuring 200 additional works.
