What is the most famous art movement you have never heard of?
I suspect it could be the “Zero Art Movement”. Let’s explore it.
The Sky Over Nine Columns – Heinz Mack (with Bosphorus behind)
The Zero art movement was based mostly in Germany in the years 1957-69. Let’s listen to one of its founders, Otto Piene, in his Paths to Paradise:
I go to darkness itself, I pierce it with light, I make it transparent, I take its terror from it, I turn it into a volume of power with the breath of life like my own body, and I take smoke so that it can fly.
Maybe that is magnificent. Maybe it’s meaningless. I’m not sure. Maybe you’re not sure either. But wait.
