After ten years of intense and successful cooperation between the gallery and Heinz Mack, culminating in the monumental installation project „The Sky Over Nine Columns“ in Venice, the artist now opens up his private archives exclusively for Beck & Eggeling. This presents the opportunity to delve into the ZERO period, with a focus on the oeuvre of Heinz Mack and his relationship with his artist friends of this movement. Important artworks as well as documents, photographs, designs for invitations and letters bear testimony to the radical and vanguard ideas of this period.
To the circle of Heinz Mack's artist friends belong founding members Otto Piene and Günther Uecker, as well as the artists Bernard Aubertin, Hermann Bartels, Enrico Castellani, Piero Dorazio, Lucio Fontana, Hermann Goepfert, Gotthard Graubner, Oskar Holweck, Yves Klein, Yayoi Kusama, Walter Leblanc, Piero Manzoni, Almir da Silva Mavignier, Christian Megert, George Rickey, Jan Schoonhoven, Jesús Rafael Soto, Jean Tinguely and Jef Verheyen, who will also be represented in this exhibition.
A bilingual catalogue accompanying the exhibition has been published.
