Abstract (English)

After delineating the Shinto and Zen roots of Japanese art and architecture, Koplos goes on to locate the precursors of contemporary Japanese sculpture in the Gutai (gestural painting, performance, kinetic sculpture, environments, and ephemera) and Mono-Ha (materialist) movements. Her discussion groups the nearly 100 sculptors thematically and considering the aspects of material, relationship, place, time and image in their work through relevant formal and biographical details. With statements by several artists. Bibl. 2 p.
