Concrete Contemporary

Konkrete Gegenwart Umschlag

How does contemporary art deal with the constructive, concrete and conceptual art of the 20th century? What is its position on the latter’s ideas and achievements or on its sometimes utopian projects? Does it merely make use of its repertoire of shapes and colors or does it have recourse to the concepts behind them as well?

About the product

How does contemporary art deal with the constructive, concrete and conceptual art of the 20th century? What is its position on the latter’s ideas and achievements or on its sometimes utopian projects? Does it merely make use of its repertoire of shapes and colors or does it have recourse to the concepts behind them as well?

Taking as its starting point the question of to what extent the production of present-day art latches onto our art heritage, Museum Haus Konstruktiv is presenting a major group exhibition with a statement character, showing works by 34 artists from Germany and abroad. Arranged rather like a trail during which threads from the history of art can be picked up, interwoven and elaborated, the exhibition “Konkrete Gegenwart” offers a multifaceted and lively snapshot of current-day constructive/concrete and conceptual work, which the publication complements with numerous texts, as well as documenting and illustrating it well.
