Abstract (English)

"The 'new art' of the late 1960s was shown in two landmark exhibitions in 1969: 'Op Losse Schroeven' and 'When Attitudes Become Form'. This book reveals how each brought together Arte Povera, Anti-Form, Conceptual and Land art, whilst challenging such categories and introducing innovative curatorial strategies. Christian Rattemeyer offers a rich comparative analysis of the two exhibitions, exploring the related but differing approaches of the two curators - Wim Beeren and Harald Szeemann - in the two distinct institutional settings of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and the Kunsthalle Bern. Numerous installation photographs enable a virtual 'walk through' of each exhibition, while meticulous chronologies detail the negotiations that shaped them. Crucial texts from the time are complemented by new research and recent interviews with participating artists" p. [4] of cover.
