Beyond preconceptions : the sixties experiment by Paulo Herkenhoff( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bold and necessary in both critical approach and geographical range, Beyond Preconceptions: The Sixties Experimentprovides 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

It is the first publication to provide comprehensive English translations of Pedrosa?s writings, which are indispensable to understanding Brazilian art of the twentieth century. Included texts range from art and architectural criticism and theory to political writings as well as correspondence with his artistic and political interlocutors, among them such luminaries as André Breton, Alexander Calder, Lygia Clark, Ferreira Gullar, Oscar Niemeyer, Hélio Oiticica, Pablo Picasso, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, Harald Szeeman, and Leon Trotsky. The book also features newly commissioned essays by important scholars in the field that contextualize central themes of Pedrosa?s writing and frame the importance of his thought for twentieth-century Brazilian art as well as the history of modernism writ large. These new translations will contribute to the international recognition of Mário Pedrosa?s importance to the growing fields of global art history and theory

"How It Is by Polish artist Miroslaw Balka is a giant grey steel structure with a vast dark chamber, which in construction reflects the surrounding architecture - almost as if the interior space of the Turbine Hall has been turned inside out. Hovering somewhere between sculpture and architecture, on 2 metre stilts, it stands 13 metres high and 30 metres long. Visitors can walk underneath it, listening to the echoing sound of footsteps on steel, or enter via a ramp into a pitch black interior, creating a sense of unease"--Gallery website
