Re-staging of the First German Exhibition of International Tendencies in Minimalism
Renate Wiehager (Ed.)
In 1967, Peter Roehr and Paul Maenz curated the first German Minimalist exhibition, Serial Formation, at the University of Frankfurt’s studio gallery. A total of 48 artists from both America and Germany presented serial-based works ranging from the German Zero movement to American Minimal and Conceptual, Nouveau Réalisme, and Op and Pop art. Celebrating the exhibition’s 50th anniversary and in the context of its ongoing Minimalism in Germany exhibition series, Daimler Contemporary, Berlin, restages this historically significant exhibition while expanding on its theme in the exhibition and catalog Serial Formations 1967/2017. The voluminous and well-illustrated publication features a complete facsimile of the long-out-of-print 1967 exhibition catalog, as well as the new and expanded exhibition. Included are 1960 artists from Donald Judd and Agnes Martin to Heinz Mack, artist’s statements, and essays from the original two curators, along with contributions from Siegfried Bartels, Nadine Henrich, Daniel Lippitsch, Meredith North, Michaela Filla-Raquin, and Frederik Schikowski and the new show curator, Renate Wiehager.
