Summary note:
The Magic of Utopia0What does an American artist in her mid 40s have to do with a German artists' group that was founded in Düsseldorf in 1958 and disbanded in 1966? The key to the connection between Carol Bove's works and those by the exponents of the ZERO group rests in her artistic approach, in her fascination for the social upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s, the intellectual world into which the artist was born in 1971.0In 1958 a group of artists came together under the name ZERO with the purpose of heralding in a new beginning in art after the horrors of the Second World War and explicitly opposing the psychologically charged pictorial inventions of Abstract Expressionism. This expressed itself in the refutation of such traditional concepts as representationality or the subjective personal handwriting as well as in the orientation on natural phenomena. Artists presented: Carol Bove, Dadamaino, Lucio Fontana, Hermann Goepfert, Yves Klein, Yayoi Kusama, Heinz Mack, Otto Piene, Erwin Thorn, Günther Uecker.00Exhibition: Galerie Koch, Hannover, Germany (24.09.2016-20.10.2016).0.
