The Brancusi Effect
12 June - 21 September 2014
The Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi (1876–1957) was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. With his thoughts about the relationship between the pedestal and the work presented he initiated a reorientation of the relation between object, viewer and space, which was of decisive influence on Minimal Art and the aesthetics of installation in general. In modular design and adaptable to various presentation contexts, Brancusi’s work is also seen as the starting point for a departure from the autonomy of the art-work in favour of reflection on its historical, reception-based and institutional positioning.
