Abstract (English)

On the occasion of an exhibition attempting to acquaint Americans with the relatively neglected European artists of the 1970s, Brown and Ammann characterise the British and German art scenes. Buchloh traces the tension between formalism and historicity in post-WWII Western art. Biographical notes on 23 artists. Circa 100 bibl. ref.
